Afternoon Martin, coffee break time. There is some resemblance to the Douglas O-46. Is it American, and is that a PW radial?

Hi Ken. No, not a Douglas and not a PW. Not a yank either!

Reg, Yes you are correct. Sorry!

Morning Ken.

The whole plane has been nagging me mate!

I looked at Italian, no luck. Polish, no luck. Some Romanians, no luck. Russia, no luck. Of course it could be one of these countries, I just didn't find it.

Hi guys. One question, although I am afraid of the answer: Biplane? Like Jona 36.

Hi Reg.

Biplane?
I did think of that mate at an early stage but high-wing monoplane I hope, otherwise I've wasted a lot of time.
