Tim,

Correct, but based on what? Also, when and why?

Had to look it up but it's one of three Percival Proctors extensively modified for the movie The Battle of Britain.  Unfortunately they never appeared in the film!

Correct Tim!

Modified by Viv Bellamy in 1968, but as you say not used due to 'interesting' flight characteristics, and dodgy structural integrity in the dives needed for the film. Glad they didn't use them: hideous!

Been quiet around here lately, so who wants to take a stab at this little beast?

You nailed it, Wayne.  What a beast, eh?  I'd like to think of it as a modern-day Hosler Fury...

Pete,

Good guess: there are lots of similarities to a Nardi 305: gear and cockpit especially, but no: not italian.

This has kept me from good aeromodelling time! But I think it might be an Ikarus MM.2 trainer then.

I don't know what #1016 is but I sure hope there's a plan/3-view of it...

Pete,

#1016: one i didn't have to look up!

Kellner Bechereau E.60?

Graham

P.S. The Ikarus MM.2 has a 3-view too, and colour artwork knocking around the web: another nice one for the list.
