Sleep well David and good morning

That gull-wing made it fairly easy to track down in Aerofiles, I'd say it's the Central-Lamson Model L-101 Air Tractor.

Lamson Air Tractor

It'll have to be Open House if judged correct as I've got visitors tomorrow and won't be online 'til afternoon/evening!

Edit: G'day Graeme

Good shooting TC.

It is indeed the Model 101.

TC has called Open House.

David, I could have sworn I saw a silhouette of a round-engined, high-wing taildragger
posted after your Lamson Air Tractor, but it seems to have been deleted.

Dunno mate - I have not had time to look since my post this morning.

Got anything ready, or can I help?

Good evening David,

Just got rid of some of my work backlog caused by the visitors, I did grab a quick look when they left mid-afternoon and there was a challenge up from Martin, but I didn't have time to follow it up and I guess that as there was nobody else about and no nibbles before he went for the weekend, he understandably removed it!!

I'm off home soon and will take up the hunt later, is yours a project or reality?

Not mine mate , I just looked to see if anyone had taken my OH and thought I recognised the one that Brian had just put up.

Edit: I see you're up to speed now
