I have to admit, this thread has been waaaaay over my head since 2009 already.
Never seen any of those planes and I thought I knew a little about aviation by now.

I am alomst nervous about Oshkosh and how much knowledge will be laid on me there.....  ::sweat::

Oh well, I guess you are right. Best to stick to personal archives. Should you have something interesting in there anyway...

by the look of it it's from around 1920 to late 1930's and there all ready was a clue earlier when talking about the Ryan made PT's.

IT was one hell of a hard thing I guess, since the guy who designed this one only designed one other aircraft.
So, all the hints together, with some extra ones...
- aircraft from the '30s
- only 1 built, been fitted with 2 different engines
- tandem 2-seat trainer, built for a dutch student organisation
Well, if it hasn't been found by tomorrow, I guess I should post the answer
And no, it isn't a PWS 40

OK, as promised, here's the answer:
The aircraft is the Lambach HL I PH-DSA "Prinses Juliana", designed by Hugo Lambach for the Delft Student Aeroclub in 1935.

Try this one then, should be easy...

Evans Volksplane VP2... I have a friend who has one, and his teenaged son is also building one....
