OK, lets see if there is some interest in this particular aircraft modeled by a famous designer.

Itís a stretched, 12Ē, Miniplane. The builder was 6í-2Ē tall and needed more cockpit room.

Havenít seem anything posted, so try this one. This is 1970, June if my memoryís still good. A close friend built it and I helped he finish it. A friend of ours, who had built several, test flew for 15mins and told us what we needed to change. I flew it the next weekend and also flew off the rest of the test time. All total 100hrs. We both learned to fly so to say as I only had about 100hrs+ or- at the time. Got by private license in May of ď70Ē before graduating from High School. Those are hours that I will NEVER forget!

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.
