Next it is the Bleriot Monoplane from 1908'
This is the version powered by the 35 hp Anzani, 3 cylinder engine.

Looks like you've had to fettle lots of ejector pin marks. Our youngest son and his wife live below Dover Castle so we've been to the site where Bleriot 'landed'. It's more of an incline than it appears in photos,

Trust you to ask!

Inpact Kits 1:48 Martin Handasyde 1910
This does look similar to an Antoinette, it is certainly of that type. It is a smaller and stronger aircraft with many interesting features.
The undercarriage had telescopic legs to each half axle, the weight was supported on a leaf spring below the axle.
A J.A.P (J.A. Prestwich) engine was used, so a radiator was not required and the oil was kept away from the pilot by a plate attached to the control column.
Direction was effected by wing warping. Martin Handasyde Monoplanes were made at Brooklands and were available in single and double seat versions, the 2-seater had a gnome engine fitted.

Excellent monoplane. The metal struts look great too as well as the rigging.
