Btw the twin-boom looks like a Noratlas to me.

If I get enough requests, I'll give up my last airplane...
Methinks I did a little too well at finding one.

LOL, you know the saying: unlucky at games, lucky in love. But it is tricky to find planes that are unknown since this group is so diverse, different parts of the world, different types of aviation etc. I could send a few pictures over via email you could post that I'm pretty sure no-one knows :D

Or how about: Name That Airport using only a picture of the control-tower?

Velo: So it wasn't a Daimler I take it. Hmmm, Jaguar never did make airplanes to my knowlege and until WWII they were actually the Swallow Sidecar company (SS, which is why they changed it to Jaguar which I believe was a model-name they used once). Aston Martin is too young. Auto Union never made planes I think. I doubt it was Porsche either since that didn't exist that early as a company. I don't really think it could be from north-america since I don't think they made such planes back then but of course I'm no expert on that field so I could be wrong. How about Skoda?

Edit: I just thought of something, maybe I was tricked by the hint. I thought the company didn't make aircraft but maybe it was airplane. Is it an old Igor Sikorsky design?

You're getting warmer... not quite in the right direction, but they did make air vehicles.

Hi Velojym,

It's the lovely Zeppelin Staaken E4 (i think it's the E4) but definately a Staaken  ;D ;)

Now as for the aeroplane from FlyBoyGil that looks like a Gypsy Moth ran up the back of a Gee Bee R2 .....Stipa-Caproni !!!  Sorry, but there is a 3/4 replica flying out of toowoomba (just west of Brisbane) the lady who owns it also owns my favorite Aussie war bird a CAC Boomerang.

Yup that's the one. A venturi Tube fuselage. Ugly as heck.
