See - it was a lot easier than you might have thought.

I removed my first one because it would have been very difficult to find (it's the weekend after all) because as far as I know it has not been built.

All yours mate.

(must go for a wee while - require 70 litres of 95 RON )

Nope, this can also fly manned, and, afaik, actually did.

Not from Israel.

Apologies for the delay - had to drop Memsab off at the Air Festival - she's part of the act!

Here you go with another weekend easy one.....

This is a projected version of a wheeled aeroplane.

All are available as kit-built from plans - some are actually flying.

Not a Murphy Reg.

Although this series of aeroplanes is new, they are designed to look vintage.
