Good afternoon Mel,

There seems to be some variations in the U/C struts and cross-axle, but I reckon it's a Gerner G.I

Well done Trevor it is indeed the Gerner G.I The G.I had a conventional undercarriage with two mainwheels and a tailskid. Originally each wheel was mounted on a V-shaped pair of struts and a half axle attached to a central frame. This proved weak and the half axles were therefore replaced by a conventional solid axle. Both wheels and skid had rubber shock absorbers.

It is on Wiki though!

When searching for previous 3-cylinder radials i already had put this one aside for future posting.
Now this one
I put this photo aside as well but I could not trace it back nor do I know make or type number!

Good evening Bear.

Are you saying you do not know what your challenge is ?

Because it's a WACO XCG-3 glider.
