now this might be a long shot but i am trying to find out the name of a model that was a magazine feature some years ago. It was a vintage style bi plane with a forward swept bottom wing and rear swept top wings.

I seem to remember it was a real fullsize design circa 1920's ?

extensive internet searches have not revealed it - can anyone shed any light ?

Don't suppose it could have been the LFG Roland Pfeilflieger?

Not forward swept but the lower wing looks a bit that way...

Hi Martin

nice idea but i am positive it had obviously well swept wing sets - very odd looking thing

That's the answer, Steve!

It must be the Hild Marshonet (link to plan)
