Thanks ffadict!
     Anyone recognize this airplane?  It is a rear stagger, trimotor biplane, with a radial engine in the nose, and a ship's masthead for a nose cone, a bloated fuselage covered in fish scales, an overcrowded cockpit, a fish tank on the forward top fuse,  a slide emergency exit, and a long rope cockpit ladder.

Probably the most well known of the weird aircraft and probably more models have been flown than there were full size ones produced1

The strange nature of this plane should make it easy enough to figure out.

You are correct, Paul.  It is the Embraer A-29.  Do you have a mystery plane candidate for the challenge, it's your turn.

It is a 2 seater and in some configurations it carries a crew of 2.  The attached image illustrates many of the features and capabilities of the mystery plane.  The mystery plane is shown as a line drawing superimposed over the gray shape of one of its competitors.

Here's a currently built light attack aircraft built in the United States by merged US and South American company.  Should be an easy one for you'

Bet it was fun to fly!!! I don't know about peanut, but remember it was designed to fly in "Ground Effect" so it would be interesting to see how it would "fly".

In fixed-wing aircraft, ground effect is the increased lift (force) and decreased aerodynamic drag that an aircraft's wings generate when they are close to a fixed surface. When landing, ground effect can give the pilot the feeling that the aircraft is "floating".

I look at that and just wonder - could you make a peanut scale version of that fly?  It'd have a pretty good tail volume, but you'd have to take some liberties with the driveline and ducted propeller.
