Yes, pretty cool design but his follow up was just as good ... the CC02

it was tempting to put this up as the next challenge but I offer this instead...

The CCO2 looks very nice!
What's still under construction (and a little bruised) looks to be the Canadian Gregor FDB-1?

Noyade has it. I was hoping an obscure Canadian aircraft would be more of a challenge.... seems not.
Noyade has control.

I don't think the Gregor is as obscure as you may think - but thanks.
Must be time for Open House.
Cheers.

A little more from Robinson's article...

I read years ago in Francillion's book on the Vietnam air war the French flew Oscars and a Rufe and acquired a few other Japanese aircraft. Looks too small for Topsy - but wiki says they did use Hickory.
