Morning, no takers overnight so a couple of clues to start the day:
- Original design was by a civilian aero club in 1955, but did not fly until either 1958 or 1959. 5 aircraft produced.
- Walter Minor engine upgraded from the original 85hp unit to105hp.

Martin, one correction to my comment yesterday, I note that a variant of the this design was fitted with a Lycoming engine. However the external appearance of that aircraft differs quite significantly from this one.

None current that I can see. I would assume that at least one (the prototype) is still in existance, albeit not flying.

Here's a picture of the prototype, which ended up being fitted with the bigger engine:

Ah ah....I have two different names for it...Wiki lists the manufacturer as ATZ

So what's the model number?

Good thinking, it is the ATZ (aka Vajic) V.55 A design from the Zagreb Aero Club, a total of 5 aircraft built over a 15 year period!

Your control Martin.
