Dook,
I did an halfhearted try looking for 6 POP Glider but could not find it.
Apparently there are 3 more midgets under the bonnet.
But with 20/20 hindsight it is easy.
Over to you

Morning all,

I thought the night shift would have snapped this one up overnight as there's not that many US twin-boomers about!

Just off to see the medics, will see if it's still here when I get back mid-morning

Morning. Sorry Trevor hope all goes well with the Quack. Dook's challenge is the McGaffet's Aviate.

The caption gives it as Moller Stromo 3. You have control.

Thank you Mel, a good challenge! Let's see how long this one lasts!
P.S. Ignore the apparent slight forward sweep as it was a fault in the drawing I found and they were though to be unswept

Interesting, engine would appear to be a four or six-cylinder, in-line, engine!

Good evening Mel,

This aircraft started life with a twin cylinder H/O engine, but you're correct in that the drawing shows it as later modified with an inline engine (four-cylinder inverted).

I should add that it also started off with an open cockpit which was changed at the same time for a closed cockpit

Sorry, it's not a Fairey Junior.

I can see the logic in your answer as the history of engine types does echo that of my challenge, but with different engine manufacturers and if you look at the drawings of the two you will see several differences, notably in the vertical location of the horizontal tail-plane and the shape of the rudder/rear fuselage, it is also considerably older than the Junior!
