Yes, an amateur build plan. Not a Rollason, more of a single engine Cri Cri. As an option, the aircraft can be powered by an electric motor.

Thanks Bri, I will admit your clue about a single engine Cri Cri helped.
Here is the next:-

Thank you Mel,

That's a nice model, but it looks like the maker got the tail-wheel wrong, it should have one under each boom

Here's the next one, almost a silhouette



Out and about this weekend, but will monitor as often as possible

That's the one Terence, the Austin-Ball A.F.B.1


The Austin-Ball A.F.B.1 (Austin Fighting Biplane) was a British fighter plane of World War I built by the Austin Motor Company with design input from Britain's leading fighter ace at the time, Albert Ball. Although trials with the prototype were on the whole excellent, and it could very probably have been developed into a useful operational type, the A.F.B.1 did not go into production, as both Austin's production capacity and its Hispano-Suiza engine were required for the S.E.5a.
