Nothing. Beaten again. Well done Mike.

I concur with the others here Mike...not enough to go on apart from a horn balanced fin. ;)

I thought that perhaps the fin would be enough for you fine fellows.
It put one responder onto the manufacturer.
I have read your comments, and apologise for being too tough.
Here's a larger chunk, which removes some of the mystery:

Absolutely nothing to apologise for, Mike. When I said, "well done", I meant it.

29-01-24 result.
Nobody got this one, so it's a shoot-down with change of underpants.

The DH fin tempted Simon, but he couldn't crack the identity.

05-02-24 The ruler shows that you see is larger than life.
Four types to identify here, full marks for 4/4, something less for partial correctness.

05-02-24 results.
Brian (Bridon Bear) was first in, and scored 4/4
Image
I'll try posting this, then do the rest as edits, as I lost the lot earlier
OK, Keith (Dev One) got 3/4, missing out on the Wessex.
Image
Mick (woody901) got the Heinkels, and picked the Leopard Moth on his second go.
Image
Ben (TSR2) also got the Heinkels.
Image
It was a tough one, though no tougher on us than on the Spotters in the 1940s :agree:
The book gave the answers as:
93 AW Whitley IV
94 Heinkel IIIK Mk VA
95 DH Leopard Moth
96 Westland Wessex
Given the lack of picture detail, I'm at a loss as to why they bothered with the finer stuff like Mks :dunno:

Thanks to anyone who looked and had a think.
Congratulations to all the above.

12-02-24 At Moorabbin over 20 years back.
From my personal album, never posted on line.
Only two to identify this week, only reg and airline blanked out, lucky you.
