Oddball is taking his time I see.

Oh well, it's Wiener-Neustädter-Flugzeugwerke (WNF) 11, registration PH + IB. Only one was build, it started in 1933 as Hopfner HV 11, and was used by Dr. Oetker food company under the registration A-141, later in 1935 when Thomas Hopfner company was taken over by Hirtenberg it stared to be modified for the use of military, the project ended in 1938 - the year Austria joined German Reich, also the year Hirtenberg/Hopfner company was taken over by WNF. Single prototype with stronger BMW engines was delivered to Luftwaffe for testing. It didn't survived the war.

Good thing I have all those 1$ bills left  ;D

Now, since this topic have already 74 pages, the odds of repost are high, but I'll risk with this very easy one first:

McDonnel XP-67 Bat, I always thought this looked like a early ancestor of the Blackbird (especially seen from the front), too bad the performance never matched the great looks.

I already exhuasted my library of rare airplanes at the beginning of this thread so I'll pass the torch on.

I've never seen a picture of this one before today, but I doubt it will be very hard to pick out in this crowd.

Oh, right. Me and my lack of html knowledge...

Yes, yes, and yes. Even Cessna agreed. In the book I saw yesterday, it said the higher-ups did not only want to not produce it, but they wanted it destroyed right away. They stripped the engines and anything else that was useful and let a dozer at the scrapyard flatten it.
