I was thinking of doing a carved foam fuselage and stick and tissue flying surfaces. Actually, part of me wants to go right off the deep end and do a model of a half-restored Fort they have on display at the Canadian Warplane Heritage museum.

Probably not any time soon, though.

As for further mysteries, my computer is in the shop so you'll have to wait for any further contributions from me.

You've obviously nailed it Tom.  I too want to build one, I just haven't figured out exactly how.  Might be a good first foam fuselage for me...

You're reading my mind Tim...I was thinking of lost foam and reed former construction as in my Goose G-21 build.  Looks like a perfect candidate....

I love it...

Yesterday my computer crashed and I lost my mystery planes.  Had a lot of my stuff backed up but not the mystery planes....have you got another one?

Tim,

Your last hint did it for me.  I believe it's a RCAF Fleet Fort...built by the Canadians during WWII

Here's the pic I found.  The Fleet Fort Model 60K

This looks like a unique plane that I'd be tempted to try to scratch build.  Eliptical wings, big round fuse cross section and all.... Smiley

Alright, I'll go on to say it was designed and built in Canada.

It looks like possibly a Blackburn prototype for the Skua...similar lines....

Still haven't found anything definitive...

Alright, it was designed to be an intermediate trainer between the Tiger Moth and Harvard but instead was refitted with radio training gear.

Tom, I never really noticed the very DH-like tail on my mystery plane but you're absolutely right, it does have that look.  Too bad it's not a DH product!

I'll at least let you know that while the pic I posted is a prototype, the airplane actually did go into full production.  I believe three or four survive today with only one of those examples in airworthy condition.

The tail area makes me think of De Havilland  like the chipmunk but the radial engine and fix landing gear in spats is something else.

I'll keep looking...

As luck would have it, I have a whole folder of mystery planes.  Thanks to a total lack of foresight I didn't put identifying filenames on any of them so here's the only one I remember right now...

Tim...Have you got one for us to identify?
