Quiet day. Well I think it's a Thai Type 2 bomber, designed by Lieutenant Colonel Luang Vejyanrangsarit in 1939, and named "Bripat" or “Paribatra” (depending on translation) in honour of Prince Bripat Sukumphan (Prince Paribatra). Power plant was a Jupiter radial. There's one preserved in the Royal Thai AF Museum.

A subscale replica, IIRC from many years ago............

Pypard got it right.

Interesting part is that apparently, with only 12 made incl prototype, they used four different engines during production (P&W Wasp, BMW VI, Bristol Jupiter, Curtiss D-12). That must be a record of some kind.

Pypard, your call!

Well there' s a bit of info I wasn't aware of on a really obscure type. I suspect your post alone has increased the general knowledge of the type

Try this one. It'll probably go quick, but I like it anyway:

Looks to be the Canadian Boeing Totem flying boat.

Pypard, I was recently familiarized with the thread rules, which state that there must be at least 24 hours in between new quiz and the winner announcement. I take it that you weren't aware of it as wasn't I.

Hi Pypard, just to explain: the 24 hour rule was imposed by the moderators of the board because the thread was becoming very quick-fire. I forgot about it myself and declared a winner within 30 minutes of posting what I though was a really obscure aeroplane. So the need to get something to last at least 24 hours is one of the things that led to only bits of aeroplanes being posted.
That Boeing is nice, isn't it: the bow looks very boat-like.

No probs with the rule. Yes the Totem is a handsome machine: it goes to show what can be done with what are essentially flat surfaces.

Great tradition of the best American engineering: simple, strong, right. Mais oł sont les neiges d'antan?

Les neiges d'antan ont disparu au printemps Canadien.

Lovely looking boat. I had never heard of it.

That reminds me terribly of Maule, but the nacelle is wrong.

If that's a radial up front then it looks quite big.

I thought there was a Scottish influence, but the stabilizer is too small.
