Good afternoon MReyn.

It looks French but might it be British ?

I've looked at Austin but nothing fits.

Do I see forward stagger ?

I wonder if you have nicked this from AQ.

Not French or British, no marked forward or rear stagger. Late 20s

I've looked at Potez and France.

The five cylinder radial is getting to me - I think it may be a Walter.

Any point in going east of Germany ?

Can you confirm the engine is a Walter NZ60.

I'm looking at Czechoslovakia because it's possibly an Avia.

From Wiki
The Siemens & Halske Sh 10 was developed and built by Berlin based Siemens & Halske in the 1920s, .The five-cylinder engine was developed in 1925 together with the seven- or nine-cylinder models Sh11 and Sh 12 .

There is information on almost every Siemens engine except the 10.

The jury is out.

Good evening Gentlemen, I have a few minutes to spare at the Dog n Parrot (rain stopped walkies)!

Nice to see a familiar name posting a challenge! Hello MReyn24050, I can only find a very poor photo, but I'm encouraged to ask if it's the Akaflieg Hannover AFS 1 ??

Lots of old hands here now (sic).

The thread is getting a bit like AQz.

Thanks Mel, a good challenge!

Away from home at the moment and struggling to find something different I don't believe this one actually flew!

I can well believe that !

At least I have a good site for it.

It was fortuitous when I said "old hands" above.
