Is it the Duben?

Man, they'd have to be desperate to go flying with a Square Four engines!

Asturian, nothing's been said about 1960s. The Square Four was produced from 1931 - 1959

Noyade said "Same era as the Dabos..." - I took that to mean it was built in the '60's................

Not the Duben. First flight (from what I've read) was 1962.
The full image may help...

think it might be a variant of the Avian Model2/180 Gyroplane that I found in the 1962 edition of Janes'

It doesn't look exactly like the challenge picture but searching on Wiki you find pictures that are close to if not identical. Apparently the first prototype flew in 1960 and crashed and the second version had several changes

janes reckons it was a Lycoming engine tho..............................

Not sure what happened there A56? If you have that edition - it's on page 24.
No connection to Avian.
