TI'm struggling - easy to research flying designs - non- flying is tougher

To keep things moving I'll declare open house.

I've been to Basler several times I don't think they do conversions for this type although Ive been tempted by the C337 conversion!

Ive also a sneaking feeling that meleagertoo (Mel?) is already ahead of me but for decorums sake I have a clue:

Well it's for sure a Cat, so I guess Noyade takes the helm.

I was rather hoping that someone would identify the Cat a bit more specificly
