Possible PSS plane but need more pics

Found this recently when looking for a possible PSS plane to tackle. There are two planes by the same designer, Herberts Cukurs. One was his aviation record setting self built wooden monoplane and the other a one-off prototype light dive bomber. The Cukurs C-6bis. Only one made and only one pic could i find thus far. The bomber is my preference however there is more info/pics of the civilian model YL-ABA.

Anyone have more? Or resource suggestions?

TIA- Steve

The middle image is the prototype dive bomber that was nixed after testing as unsuitable.

The first and last pics are the civilian plane.

It's certainly not a "handsome" plane But it should make a decent flying plane. The wing seems highly tapered which could make it a bit prone to tip stall, especially the high speed variety when you yank the stick a wee bit too enthusiastically.

This should work perfectly! I don't build "handsome" planes .

Mine would have a designation call sign like - YU-GLY1

So it wouldn't be noticeable if mine built out prettier than the real deal.

For the tip stall prone wing tips.....maybe some taper removed with creative license.

Looking for a 3 view or plans. Will keep digging. Maybe the library or some Jane's books.

Hi Steve,

A quick image search in Google using the designers name came up with the following:

Build it! That's a super cool subject. I get the challenge of not having much documentation. I've had my eye on the Heinkel 112 for years.
