It's a Quotter!  :o ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Weaver is right. It's going to be a tri-otter but produced by the Australian Dehavillland corporation.

I think that DHA had their fingers burnt, well and truly, for trimotors with the DH Drover...

Will check if i can find RFDS decals and a suitable livery.

@ Richshaw: they sure must hsve. It easn't the success they hoped for. Do why not try it again with a proven airframe and enginges being available a a wilde range of powersettings and almost same dimensions?

Build wil continue after holiday.
