Almost sure its an Arado - distinctive cowling - possibly a 197?

Hmm, more Henschel than Arado at a guess. Those cowlings were pretty common fit for engines . Havent a clue , sorry. Nice plane for a scale model.

Yes, the cowlings go with the engine - in this case a BMW 132M

Its an Arado 195, I believe. and was intended for the Graf Zeppelin - boat, not airship

Is it me to go? Here's another one from my wartime RAF book - a genuine one-off oddity.

hmmm,

Old age and decrepitude are terrible things - I have a plan for this little beast (rubber power) and that rear fus is seriously stick-like

"Cygnet" is strongly in my mind and I need to remember the maker - Possibly General Avation.  Memory or research should do the trick

Well;  memory and a quick look confirm is the GA Cygnet (in the open-topped form shown)

And it still exists in the MOF at East Fortune - don't remember it from my last walk round.  However I am still hoping for the pics of the Dragon, Craig (if you are reading this!) ;D

Teeth into this, then - hope its big enough

Sorry guys, but it's definitely NOT a Cygnet. It was a one-off and no longer exists.

Keep trying

How's about the GAL45 Owlet?  Written off, as you say Aug 30 1942 (so coming up for its anniversary)

That's the one - literally. Introduced as a trainer for the tricycle undercarriaged Boston. To be fair, they also modified a Cygnet, but that was side-by-side, rather than tandem.

Still trying to work out the mark number of the Wellington. Best guess  so far is a GR Mk XII?

What a load of bums :o    Suppose a Sea King is too easy  :P , so it`ll be a Sea Sprite.   Correct on the Thurston "Teal", alas it was written-off in a storm in Ireland.
