Thanks Karl,

Back to work now, but I doubt I'll get back again before I get home in two or three hours, but seeing as there doesn't seem to be many about, I'll put another one up before I go.

As it's a nice day here for a change, we'll stay on the water!!

Nice day here, too. Back inside from yard work for a look... looks French.

I suspect Loire 210?

Edit: Hi evansb.... looks like you got there first!

Lightning Mate is correct. The Viper was the ideal seaplane trainer of its day. You have control.

An easy one for you.

Limited monitoring due to attention elsewhere, so please carry on as usual if two of you agree.

I'll second your answer Mel,

On the grounds of this evidence

Delta IV - Fieseler F3 Wasp

Edited to say I'll also agree with your answer the thread is yours

Hi Graeme. Hope all is well. You have it the Simmering-Gruz-Pauker M222 Flamingo. I see I shall have to change my source i.e. Janes 59-60.
You have control.

"All-wooden". Interesting. I wonder what type of wood(s) used and from what forest(s).
