Looks like a possible kit plane or homebuilt home design!

I believe that it is Sky9Pilot's turn on the Br 890. I don't have anything in mind at the moment.
Regarding the Eindecker, it looks like the only information around is in German and as scarce as hen's teeth.

That would be Franz Reichelt. The inventor might actually be Hermann Reichelt who worked with Wolfgang Harlan.
See: https://translate.google.ca/translate?hl=en&sl=de&u=https://de.wikipedia.org/wik... (sorry, need to use Google Translate on it)
And photos seem to be rare. I did find this one which calls it Reichelt-Eindecker.
http://www.letletlet-warplanes.com/2008/08/13/johannisthal/ (Photo 13)
and the caption on this photo/postcard is: Quote:
With a large zeppelin hall and regular flights, it must have been a magnet for the people of Dresden. And even flight pioneers like Hermann Reichelt and Jagdflieger-Ass Max Immelmann were at home here.

OK - sorry I went out of turn - but this mystery plane is not in Wiki.  Here is a little hint - a man jumped off of the Eiffel Tower with his parachute that did not work - to his death - the media was there taking pics.

OK...I yield to LWM and his plane...
I'm still baffled.  It really looks to have the Taube type of wing but the seating arrangement is definitely different. Almost hang glider looking!!!

OK - I found the Breguet 890 Mercure on Wiki, but wiki has no pics of the plane.   You have to type in Breguet 890 Mercure and press images to get to the pics - a nice wooden model pic is there with a good history explanation  
  http://www.wind-tunnel-models.com/wind_tunnel_model_Breguet_890.html   
 
the above link will not work, so click on the wood model pic and then view the page 
View page: wind-tunnel-models.com
for the history explanation, and more wood model pics.

That big 4 engine mystery plane looked familiar to me - as Sky9 pointed out - "a miltary version called the Mars, to replace the Douglas C-47" - and with the dihedral in the stab, it looked like the Martin Mars tanker fire bomber - is it the same plane? only 7 were built - four of the surviving aircraft were later converted for civilian use to firefighting water bombers.  It looks close ... ?   Is it sort of close?  I posted pics of the Martin Mars in "The West is Burning Up"
LWM

The Martin Mars that you are referring to is a very large American flying boat, the one in my mystery post is a French aircraft of which three were built and only one version was called the "Mars" (see the wikipedia extract)
