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!

Are the engine and the fuselage offset from one another or is that an optical illusion created by the paint scheme?

Is that the Polish PZL M-17, known affectionately as "Hairy Dudus"?

Open House if so--I have nothing suitably exotic.

It certainly is the Hairy Dudus. Much prettier than its M15 cousin.

I'll throw in a quickie. It's a bit of an eye test, driving to a castle in north east England will not help. The ringed plane in the photo...
