The engine exhausts look too big so I'd guess its a plans or kit built experimental scale model of the Spitfire, probably powered by a Jaguar V-12.

This would make for a light wing loading?

And an easy one

Has anyone seen a model of this actually fly?

There is one in a hobby shop here in Aust, Wagga Wagga, but he couldn't get it to fly. Art Johnson had one, an oiler, if I remember in a copy of RCM Magazine years ago?

That looks a bit like a He100-but the tail looks wrong

Kyushu Shinden
Haven't seen one fly-but there is a sp400 plan available-designed by Chris Golds..Seen a few pics of built ones-so they probably fly...

Bv-155 (Messerschmitt design, turned over to BV to build).

Kawasaki Hein (Tony) (My stand-way-off scale is in the plans section here)

Kyushu Shinden

The radial-engined flying wing is Russian, but I don't recall the name. Kalinin? Added: OOPS The Akerman "Arrobile" -- found it when looking for something entirely different!

I THINK the tanker for the Short flying boat is a Bristol Bombay, but that's a guess. BTW, as far as I know, the first in-flight refueling was in the US, when a guy with a 5 gallon can of gas changed planes in mid-air during a record flight (the Question Mark, I think).

Bill B.

Still digging for a suitable picture to submit!

Also, is that shiny twin Polish (the country, not the finish!)

Apparently the japanese bought the licences to build the He100 and its DB 601 powerplant-and ended up with the Hien...apparently....

Nope - not a Potez 63 but a prototype for the Hanriot 220. I think the only part that survived unchanged to the final version was the wing.

Yep the Akerman, not that it ever flew but at least it was different. The tanker was a HP Harrow see the post above for info.
