I wonder why we've heard nothing of late from Mechta on this topic.

And if it might be a Tomtit, the possibility of a modified Heath Parasol comes to mind. The first British registered Heath Parasol (G-AFZE) - which, whilst registered in 1939, didn't fly until 1949 - was powered by a Tomtit.
I am a brave man; it’s definitely not a Tomtit. I owned a Tomtit for many years and am well acquainted with the 8 valve Anzani as well.

I am afraid we will not get any further without additional info.
When Mechta has more info or somebody else digs something up,
We can always do another intermezzo.

As MReyn has ID the Avia and Vultee, I suggest You come up with a new challenge?

Does this imply that on the Southern Hemisphere the props turn the other way around for the obvious reason?
Or has the Corona effect taken a turn on me lately?

The strut arrangement is muck a like a Pietenpol Sky Scout.
But that has an American origin.

After twelve days, maybe you should just identify it and put us out of our misery - assuming that there are any of 'us' still following this thread!
