Boy, you really do have a thing for contra-rotating props! Looks good for modelling.

Another design tested for the prone pilot position.
from:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reid_and_Sigrist_R.S.3
Quote:
The Reid and Sigrist R.S.3 was a British twin-engined, three-seat advanced trainer developed in the Second World War for postwar use. Although the R.S.3 was evaluated as a trainer, the type never entered production and was eventually rebuilt as the R.S.4 Bobsleigh as an experimental aircraft with the pilot in a prone position, seen as advantageous in minimising g-force effects in fighters.

Ja das ist es!
Berlin B9 Experimental Aircraft see: http://www.luft46.com/prototyp/berlin9.html
They researched setting up an aircraft for the pilot to fly in a prone position.

Your turn again, Kiwi
by the way, New Zealand has just been upgraded to the status of a continent, so we now have 8 continents on the globe.

Nope.
Strictly research, not related to any aircraft manufacturer. W/S 31 feet, or 9.4 m
Built to research a way to protect pilots during excessive G forces.

OK. This one was a prototype used in research. It is really a lot like the Yugoslavian Ikarus 451. Country of origin is glaringly obvious.

Boeing YB-9 (Death Angel) Prototype Monoplane Bomber
see: https://www.militaryfactory.com/aircraft/detail.asp?aircraft_id=856
Quote:
In 1931, Boeing engineers had developed a larger airframe powered by two radial engines as a private company venture. It featured a pencil-like, streamline fuselage with lessons gleaned from the Monomail project including its low-mounted, all-metal monoplane wing approach. The tail featured a high-reaching vertical fin with low-set tailplanes. The undercarriage retracted though the main legs only partially under the wings while the tail wheel was static. First flight of the prototype YB-9 was on April 13th, 1931, the aircraft known to Boeing as "Model 214". A second prototype followed as "Model 215" and key differences in the two became the Model 214's use of Curtiss V1570-29 "Conqueror" engines of 600 horsepower and the Model 215's Pratt & Whitney R1860 "Hornet" radial engines of 575 horsepower. Model 215 became the USAAC's "Y1B-9A".

You got it Tom!     Smiley   The
"SOLAR IMPULSE 2"

  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_Impulse 
  http://www.solarimpulse.com/ 
  A Swiss long-range experimental solar-powered aircraft project.  The first circumnavigation of the Earth by a piloted fixed-wing aircraft using only solar power and to bring attention to clean technologies.  Legs of the flight crossing the Pacific and Atlantic oceans were the longest stages of the circumnavigation, taking up to five days and nights.  On multi-day flights, the pilots took 20-minute naps and used yoga or other exercises to promote blood flow and maintain alertness.
   Your turn Tom   Wink
