Lasco (Larkin Aircraft Supply Company) were a Melbourne based aircraft manufacturer.
The Labrador was a single seat monoplane scout built between the wars and supplied to number of air forces including those in Central and South America, Asia, and Africa.

Fuselage from Henschel Hs 126?
Owing to the current financial difficulties, the light at the end of the tunnel will be turned off until further notice.

Close.

This is just something i've been fiddling with.   Crafting those nice big spats has taken most of the time.
The prop came out of the box with one blade broken off.  I've glued it back together three times but it doesn't want to hold.  Shame because I like the look of the big wide paddle blades.

Looks like a Hs123 fuselage (and tail, possibly the top wing also) to me.

I like the look so far. :thumbsup:

I concur, a Henschel 123 "monoplaned"/"One Wing Biplaned" as per robunos' builds over on BtS.

Try shaving off the mating surfaces to get rid of old glue and square up the surfaces. Fresh glue on fresh plastic might do it.
Interesting build! I have something like that in the stash that's missing a wheel spat. Hmmmm.....

It's small and it looks very neat Fred..I like this cause it's different..does look like it's lost it's upper wing  ;D
It's gonna look great with paint on it  <_<
If it aint broke ,,fix it until it is .
Over kill is often very understated .
I know the voices in my head ain't real but they do come up with some great ideas.
Theres few of lifes problems that can't be solved with the proper application of a high explosive projectile .

To me it has a very Italian touch, probably due to the cowling? I really like the archaic wing struts.  :lol:

Wing is the top wing from a Gladiator.
Spats are very modified Stuks,
Archaic wing struts are Kawanishi Type 94 parts.  I will be adding rigging to make it look even more ancient.

When I saw the title of this thread I was going to ask if it's nose was wet?

However on seeing the pictures it reminds me a bit of a P-26, not a bad thing

Vehicles named after dogs are rare.  Not sure why.  Cats, yes. Dogs, no.

Hispaniel Suiza is one example... :mellow:
