I think it's a development of the P53, the M.D.B. Aeroscooter .

Learning from Trevor, David? i.e. zipping in with the correct answer!!! Yes, it is the De Bernardi M.d.B 02 Aeroscooter.

The De Bernardi M.d.B. 02 Aeroscooter is a two seat light sport aircraft designed by Mario De Bernardi as a follow on to the single seat Partenavia P.53 Aeroscooter.De Bernardi developed the all metal single seat Partenavia Aeroscooter earlier. Seeking to improve the design, the M.d.B. 02 Aeroscooter was developed as a two seat aircraft to be built by CAP in Bergamo


LM has control!!!

Good call David. I'd looked at the Aeroscooter previously but discounted it and had just moved on to see if there was something from Piaggio! Nice one Martin

I consider that to be theft from Ken, so I return the property to its' rightful owner.

Your thread Ken.

That's a shapely lookin' one, Ken. Pobjoy engine?

Edit: Ok, I just happened to know that one : Shapley Kittiwake?

Open house if correct. Only had time to peek in. Cheers.

She is indeed very Shapeley Karl

Yes, it is the gull-wing Shapeley Kittiwake from 1937



Good to see you back around Karl. Control is with you

Correction to that, Karlark has declared Open House. David, perhaps you have one lined up?

G'day mate.

First thought was a Brandenburg, but now think this is post-WWI?
A Heinkel of some description? Maybe He-5? Can't find many Heinkel pics at the moment.

G'day mate.

Not a Heinkel - early 1920s, not many made.

Morning David. It looks like the LFG V.20 Arkona. If it is, take a look at the underside of the tail - your sihouette has included a piece of the hangar door
