Clean lines. So the author Frank Radcliffe actually designed this aircraft? Really? Perhaps you meant to say the author shared the same name as the designer Frank Radcliffe, B.Sc., A.M.I.A.E, A.R.Ae.S. You had me researching Nevil Shute's bio...


Here is the next challenge: (sorry, not a silhouette)

Not Ryan. The mystery aircraft was built by a very small company. The company folded during the Depression. Powered by a 5-cylinder LeBlond radial engine.

If it isn't dead then it's breathing very slowly and in need of oxygen and resuscitation!
