I found it on a website I've had bookmarked for a long time which has a link to Shavrov. I had assumed it was probably Russian by the somewhat touched up image. Just not had the time to look properly today.

Love to get hold of his books - even if they are in Russian!

Not had a chance to prepare anything so will have to be Open House.

Evening LM, try Googling the "Russian Aviation Museum".

Meanwhile, here's something quick for the open house:

Is it a PTO-4?

Either that or a Miles Magister.

Yes it is the Estonian PTO-4 (Voldemar Post, Richard Tooma and Otto Org)! Your control.

If the Russian aircraft museum didn't get you there, try googling this:

Monoplane by G.A.Diakov

Looks like the DOWA 81. But haven't we had it before?

Edit, closing down now, so assuming correct, Open House

'Artnoon Martin.

It appears to be unmanned.

Does it really have four wheels or is it some kind of launch dolly?

Looking at the upswept tail booms and it's attitude, I imagine it's designed as a rough terrain STOL.

Unless, of course, it's the Freewing Unmanned Systems LLC Scorpion.
