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?
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.

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.
