Question
Anyone recognize these planes?

Hi all - I got a little carried away at some auctions and need some help identifying these planes and/or any other useful info about them. There are five different planes. Much appreciated.

PLANE #1:
Span = 78"; Length = 57"

Plane #1 looks really neat, but I can't identify it though. I do like the style of it though.

Plane #3 looks like a generic trainer to me. Could be one of many different companies made it.

Plane #5 looks like a Lanier RC .40 Mariner model seaplane to me. A .40 glow engine size plane. It used a ABS like plastic fuselage and the foam wing was covered with a thin sheet of the plastic too.

Thanks for the reply. The seaplane isn't a Lanier Mariner. The tail and wing aspect ratio are different (at least as near as I could tell from digging up images of the Mariner).

I thought I overheard someone say at the auction the trainer is from Northeast <something?>. I should have wrote it down.

Thanks.

Also on the seaplane, not only are there no wing tip floats, there's no provision to even mount any. Looks like this would be problemmatic. . . . .

Oops, i stand corrected, I forgot to look at the tail on the plane. Yes it isn't a Lanier.
Sorry.

#1 reminds me of a model that showed up at my field, 20 years ago.

The owner called it a Spezio Tuholer, but when I did an image search, the Tuholer doesn't look like your model.
