Gave up on AviaFrance mate - loading pages too slowly.
I'll try for a Cauldron?

Good morning. Looks like the Block 800P?

Yes Ken, the Bloch 800P is correct. :D.
Also known as a SNCASO SO.80.

Bloch 800-P - Transport postal - Un sicle d'aviation franaise

MB 800

Skytrain10's control

skytrain10 6th Jul 2012 19:47

No guesses? To help you a long a recent (2000's) design. Not a homebuild.

Edit, challenge withdrawn.

skytrain10 6th Jul 2012 22:33

No interest today and not around much over the weekend so challenge withdrawn.

Open House.

Noyade 6th Jul 2012 22:41

Evening Ken. :)


No guesses?
Plenty of guesses mate, but none will be close. My problem I think is my brain hasn't moved on much from the mid-80s regards light aircraft. I see your image and still think in terms of Beech or Piper. In fact my first thought was the Aerotec 122, which it isn't.

Sorry mate, need a lot more clues. :(

Karlark 6th Jul 2012 22:43

I thought Beech 23 but I know that was wrong.

Edit, challenge withdrawn.
Happy to have it back if you want mate. :)

Well, in the meantime, just for a laugh...my youngest son recently went to see Battleship...
Battleship (2012) - IMDb

Since then, much to my disgust (:(:)), he now builds warship models. The latest Revell kit he built has this illustration in the instructions..

What do you think the seaplanes are?
And what's the warship?

:)

MReyn24050 6th Jul 2012 23:20

USS New Jersey with Vought OS2U Kingfisher perhaps, if not the New Jersey then the USS Missouri.

Noyade 6th Jul 2012 23:24

G'day mate, sorry, but no.

(This seaplane is already on your list)

Here's my 'ghosty' silhouette of the model piece. Eat ya heart out David. :)

then the USS Missouri.
Just saw that mate. Yes indeed. :ok:

The seaplane?.......

MReyn24050 6th Jul 2012 23:47

Curtiss SC Seahawk?

Noyade 6th Jul 2012 23:53


Curtiss SC Seahawk?
I believe that's what it's meant to be Mel. But I guess with scaling around 1:540, aircraft get distorted.

:ok:

MReyn24050 6th Jul 2012 23:54

That is true Graeme. It must be Open House I am afraid.

Lightning Mate 7th Jul 2012 07:36

Morning/evening/g'day all.


Here's my 'ghosty' silhouette of the model piece. Eat ya heart out David. http://images.ibsrv.net/ibsrv/res/sr...lies/smile.gif

Is this better?....

A'rtnoon LM,

Apologies for absence, just back from a business trip!

That looks like the Focke-Wulf F 19 Ente, the prototype that took the Wulf out of FW :ooh:!!

Lightning Mate 7th Jul 2012 11:48

....and good 'artnoon to you TC.

That will be the one - all yours. :ok:

SincoTC 7th Jul 2012 11:54

Thanks David,

This one should be fairly straightforward

Lightning Mate 7th Jul 2012 12:01

Things often should be straightforward!

Is it Polish?

Appears on first inspection to be a two-seater, but I have my doubts.
