Very good! I haven't got the heart to spin out 4 and 6 after you got so close, 4 is the Yak 140 and 6 is the Su-17 (1949 model, nothing to do with the Fitter) .

Good work guys, between you you've got everything except no.1. Hint: Think of a country that was occupied by Germany early in the war.

Ok, looks like I have you guys beat with the French bomber; it's a Bloch B162 protoype. Here's a side view:

Bugger, too late to join.

Oh well, I would have said Potez. And then the clue made me think possibly cheese-consuming with perhaps a tendency to wave white flags.

Funny how the Polish and French were able to build wonderful bombers just before the outbreak of war but their fighters were just dire...

Were they reading the bible according to Trenchard?

2. Okay, the back end looks very Hurricane-like, but for some reason I'm thinking Morraine-Saulnier.

4. Hmm, Fairey Battle springs to mind. Also the tropedo bomber, Blackburn Roc.

The only famous seaplane I know is Machi-Castaldi and that had a huge V engine which was pretty obvious. This, I don't know, some kind of Schneider competitor?

Sorry howlrunner, none of the above. However you got very close with one of your guesses but I can't say which for fear of giving it away.

PS, I just want to blow my own trumpet a bit here, if you'll forgive me. In the original pic, no4 was festooned with national markings and serial numbers and I'm well impressed at my removal of them without leaving obvious patches, sorry, carry on.

I think the last one is a Latecoere 298 torpedo bomber used by the French navy.

The next- to-last one may be a Fairey Fulmar.

Cheers,

Time to load up the shotgun and shoot at everything.

Hmm, did Hawker ever make a racing plane in the '30s? Or are we looking at the first Hurricane protoype, built to answer the Air Ministry specification? Before guns and sights and whatnot were fitted? And after the RAF got over it's love affair with the Demon/Hart...But, if it were it would have a two-blade, fixed-pitch, wooden prop...I still think it was a pylon racing job...Unless it was Hughes' record-breaker, but that had flush-fitted metal panels, not that internal bracing I can see...Urghh, damn you, Waynos!

Right, not the Battle or the Roc, could be the Firefly, the Fulmar, Barracuda or the Skua...But I'm going with Fulmar...

Seaplane: Well it isn't the Supermarine S6B Rolls Royce-engined monster, that's for sure.

edit: No. 3 isn't the Sopwith Salamander, is it?

1. Aero 204
2. Renard R.38
3. Hawker Fury (Panther IIA engine)
4. Fairey P.4/34
5. Latecoere 298

Sorry, been away with ill heath for a while.

Do I take it that external links to pictures is permitted again ?

LOL, sorry for messing with your head howlrunner


Welcome back wombat, full house of course


I thought the Fury looked radically different to say it only has a different engine and who would have thought Belgium would produce such an up to date fighter as the R.36 before WW2?

The P.4/34 was a bit cruel on howlrunner, built as it was after the Battle but before the Fulmar, this light bomber was a sort of missing link between the two


The seaplane, Latecoere 298, is a torpedo bomber, not a racer. More pics when I have edited them.

linking to images

As far as I understand it (and a mod can correct me if I'm wrong) you can link to images if you have got them hosted somewhere but if they appear on another website you have to show a link instead.
