That was a good one Kiwi - took me a couple hours to find it.  I saw the four-bladed props and cowls and went off looking for late and post-WWII British bombers.  The bubble up front eventually got me headed in the right direction.

Try this one (then and now pictures):

Kiwi, you are absolutely correct!  Build it from the plans that PB guy pointed out, and shake up the folks at the next funfly.  Chances are, they won't know what it is.  What have you got for us?
