None right so far, however to give some help then the name does ring similar to Beechcraft.

This has got to be THE ugliest paint job I have ever seen--would this be a "Scort-ish paint jobbie"? ::whistle:: ::whistle::

Hmm, strange, I must've forgotten to reply to Gibbo correctly ID'ing the "plane".

I can't help but think of that animated Beatles movie every time I see this.

That pattern on the R44 actually looks like it's taken from a button-shirt my dad had in the 80's.

Hey everyone!!!

A certain head chicken noted that I had chickened out, flown the coop, etc. and wondered if I was still alive. I'm not... I'm spending the year dead for tax reasons  ::rofl::, but, that aside... anyone care to guess what this is...?

Welcome back TM, nice to hear from you, and nice entry! Is that really a complete plane? I don't see the cockpit anywhere. Some bits and pieces seem a bit more modern than the design-type would seem to indicate but maybe that's because they had to be replaced due to wear and tear?

Yes, it is a complete plane... not a good picture, sorry. Note the smaller version/model next to it... it has a model pilot in it which shows where the seat is. This airplane was indeed home made in the 1920s by a high school student and it barely flew... or actually I should say hardly flew... (how's that for some hints?). This is a replica constructed from descriptions from the original builder, who went on design some other airplanes that flew much better than this one.

Hmmmm... no. The designer/builder was born in the USA in 1904.
