Happy to see you back Fauteuil Volant!
With the 24hr rule lifted I hope to see more from you.
Fauteuil Volant has correctly identified the Scheldemeeuw built before WWII by the aeroplane department of Naval Shipyard De Schelde.

I don't know about the Netherlands, but with the hoarding of toilet rolls here it is easier and probably cheaper to buy 100 pairs of disposable underpants instead !

..... but not this time, SLB, I'm afraid to say. I've nothing immediately to offer so, I fear, that I must say OH. I'll try to do better in future.

As no-one has stepped into the breach and I've had time, this morning, to find another challenge ..... here goes!

Amazing what you can do with a few toilet rolls...

The challenge looks a real oddball.

Is it by any chance French ?

I can't see a prop, so is it a pusher ?

Whilst I can see why you've found similarities with the Turbulent, the limited information that I have gives no indication that this oddity was created out of a Turbulent. The indications are that it was constructed from scratch - oh, and it did fly.

I think that the apparent absence of a propeller is down to the the photograph. As far as I'm aware, it is a tractor. But look closely at the photograph and see what is missing, which you'd expect to find on most fixed wing aircraft.

All I can see that could be missing are flaps.

More than flaps are missing from the wings. They are aileron free zones! That's why this aeroplane has the 'sticky up thing' emerging from the fuselage aft of its cockpit.

The 'sticky up thing' - whose technical name is a lateron - replaced ailerons on this 1959 single seater. Its designer had plans to build a two seater version, but these did not come to fruition.

Might this be the ARL-11 Baby Squale ?

Presumably the Lateron was so named because the designer was going to fit ailerons Later on to this a/c when the silly looking thingy on top of the fuselage turned out to be useless (ahem)

You can blame my partner for that comment btw - she thought that one up
