Thanks! I'm fresh out of silhouettes, so I'm going to declare a rare (for me) OPEN HOUSE. I do have some mystery cockpit photos remaining, but I don't play that thread anymore.

Working my way through my "Big Book of Gliders".

Neiva BN-1? Tail looks right...but the nose is wrong?

Stop me when I get to the right country.

Skipping France...too many.

(Was that wise?)

Polish?
SZD-12 "Mucha-100"

I forgot to ask....circa 1960? If not, I'm screwed.

Flicking pages too fast mate!

Kinda moot, because this has no connection to either…..

Not Polish, but let's put a fix pin on the wold map for Poland as one country in the plot.

circa 1960?
Pretty circa: late 40s to late 60s

Skipping France wouldn't harm you in this case.

What would you say about my aerodrome stab Graeme?

Laughed when I first saw your answer....then googled....then ate humble pie. Would never have picked that for Bankstown, looks Third World...then again maybe we are?

My book wasn't "Big", I lied. I'm done. Surprisingly nothing listed for Switzerland in 1960? I thought that was THE place for soaring?

C'mon, June 1942. Many places did….

No fix in Switzerland.

Let's put another fix in Canada to cover the geographical spread ,

I'm already lost...in more ways than one. Need a country mate.

Have to leave soon to watch another Ed Wood movie - "Bride of the Monster" with Bela Lugosi.....(as we discussed.)

(WA...I was going to put Wake Airfield...)

Cheers!

Not a Lockheed RR.

OK Graeme. Country: Designers Canadian and Polish, had worked for Junkers, Supermarine and Canadian Roe (not both in all).

A site containing vintage sailplanes lists this under T because it is "The xxxxxx".
