There is some very "bomber pilot" silhouetting going on here!!!!

The fin/rudder............!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After all my tutorial work Reg, you still miss things.

That sounds interesting David, so why not post it?
Because my name is not ################### and it woud probably be up for many days - that is not the aim of this thread -(although some people in the past think it's clever to do that!)

I have deleted it from my portfolio sleeve.

Abend Reg,

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one to conduct a review of the search method/keywords one has used used and how to find the answers !!

skytrain's last was indeed a good Challenge!!

This on the other hand, won't last long I fear, after checking Mels list and not finding it, I've dug a little deeper and realised it isn't so good as I'd hoped!



Off home now and as line is reported better now, I should be back online in about 20mins, by which time it'll be gone (the challenge, not my line)!!

A somewhat patronising attitude mate!

I just feel that if we are going to do real silhouettes, then they ought to be accurate.

I have seen phrases such as "sorry, I forgot to do this" and "I missed this bit" and " not sure from the image where this goes".

If images are not accurate, then people start typing misleading phrases into the web.

It's probably about time for my retirement.

Nacht / night.

Guys, one of things I said in my "guidelines" is that this should be for fun. The day we take it seriously is the day we should stop. We all make errors converting pictiures to silhouettes - it's called human error. We are ALL guilty of that. So let's show some tolerance.

Back to the challenge...familiar but can't place it...I'm guessing American? Somewhat Kitfox'ish....but the undercarriage is wrong.

Evening Ken ,

You're right there on all counts and it's a Yank too

I bow out.
Only for the night I hope Mate! I'm sure that Reg's comment was intended to be humerous

Mate,

My apologies for sounding patronising. Not intended .

From the substance of your message I will try to learn, from the emoticons I will pick above all the , which I take seriously.

Good night; I will retire now, too.

See you Mate, and you other gents, tomorrow.

I'm afraid it's not that, but it certainly looks very similar, mine has parallel struts though and is quite a bit earlier, although you may have seen this one too and I'm sure you know its designer's name

So looking at a 1950's design?

Edit, well its heading towards midnight here so going to have to call it a day. Won't be around much tomorrow so I'll leave it up to the night shift to work it out. Good night.

I did say quite a bit earlier, it was in fact pre-war!

I might venture that there is a "personal" connection to your last challenge! You'll kick yourself when this one (or its designer) is identified!!

Bugger, wish you hadn't said that...it's got me looking again!

Personal connection....well I guess that's Oshkosh, which got me looking at Wittman designs, amongst others, but nothing there....

Unfortunately with a connection speed under 100 kbps it is frustratingly slow...so a proper search of Aerofiles is out of the question.....

The personel connection is correct (sorry to hear that your internet one isn't) !!

This aircraft is in the EAA AirVenture Museum, so you've probably seen it, and the reason you've been there is because the local airport manager was responsible for the EAA coming to Oshkosh and the airport now bears his name, as did your last post. Take another look at his works!! I wouldn't bother with Aerofiles though as there's no piccie, which is why I thought it may be worth using. Wiki would be better this time (but still no picture There was a replica built early this century (coo that sound odd doesn't it)!!
