I've flopped with the latest Bitzer too. I felt sure I had it right, even down to the version, but the Grand Mufti says no. ;)

Hi Paul,
Many similar features, but the Amiot had oval fins, whereas this machine carries rounded quadrilateral fins.

Hmm..those fins are reminiscent of a more well known twin of the period, but I know it can't be that. I'm flummoxed once again. *-) :lol:

I can think of a couple of German types, Paul, but you're right, it's not them. :agree:

First, the results:
Diamond badges for these hawkeyes, who correctly identified the SAAB B-18...
Keith (Dev One), Mick (woody901), Peter (MilesMan), Ben (TSR2), AllanL

Despite some initially unique-seeming features, we still saw some look-alikes emerge; like the Amiot 351 & 354, Le 045, Yermolaev 2 :-O
There were some good tries in there. :agree:

Thanks All, hope you enjoyed it.

Usual PM only replies please.
This is volume one of testing your knowledge of wings.
Wings of twins, that is. Get 6 right for a Diamond award; it all goes downhill from there! :lol: :OB:
