The Skyranger was initially produced by the Rearwin company, and then continued on under the Commonwealth Aricraft brand when they were bought out. Info on the Skyranger Interesting that the original price for the plane was $3000! 1943 Rubber plan for a 34" W/S Rearwin Skyranger here: Outerzone plan

Itís a Skyranger. My friend picked it up for $3500. Unfortunately itíll cost $30,000 to restore it. Also, the generations coming up behind us arenít interested in antiques or conventional ( tail wheel) aircraft. Prices are going down the tubes.

Ooops...thanks Ian...yes I should have said Kiwi's post I believe is the Avro ...

Still looking for the one Huey posted!!! the structure from the front of the windshield to the wing root structure is interesting using 4 rods and not just two.

not mine, Kiwi's.

I was thinking it looked a bit like a luscombe, but I can't find a match for the forward vents.

Ian...I believe your plane is the Avro Ashton...

Huey...It's tough from the front quarter view you've given but reminds me of a Stinson Voyager but the engine is too small, I believe the Voyager had a six cylinder.... but the stringer down the side of the fuselage sticks out a bit too much for a Stinson...so I'm thinking Taylorcraft unless it's a Auster from the UK.

I guess everybody has been busy with building or life... no rush or pressure.  Just let things happen as they will.  I'll not post a new picture...if anyone wants to post a new picture go ahead.

I really like this topic but don't want to hog it, like to let other people try.

Yes indeed. It was given either the 27 or the 270 designation.
There doesn't seem to be a lot of interest in this thread for the last few months.

OK...I believe it's a Breguet Br-270 Observation aircraft of the French Airforce.
