From Ailes 10/1945,

here is a DS.10, a low-wing light monoplane Project as I suggest,created by J. Durandeaux,
in the book; Les Avions Francais 1944-1964,he designed a light aircraft called D.510,or
maybe it was a misprint and they meant DS.10 and they saw the letter "S" as the number
"5"  ?!.

Curiously the TU index for issues 1 to 266 contains no mention of Durandeaux and the D.510 or DS.10 and Pierre Gaillard's book is succinct in the extreme in describing it as an amateur built light aeroplane dating from about 1945 (with no illustration). I wonder whether it was realised?

My dear Avion,

if you meant the list or index,it's nothing,I have more than 200 issues of it and after they
published this index they discovered many companies and designers,and they put them in their
issues,according to the index; the articles : Les Constructeurs Francais must ended by issue 266,
but it still appear and reach to issue 302,although they don't finish letter "S" yet ?.

From Avions No. 127, a little-known prototype identified as the "Fellot Lacour" [F-PJCV], christened "L'ancÍtre" (the ancestor), though the spelling is apparently unsure.

From Ailes 11/1945 and TU magazine issue 91,

here is all of Fellot-Lacour airpplanes,FL.1,FL.2,FL.3,FL.4,FL.10,FL.20 & FL.201

It was actually built,from Ailes 12/1945.

It was actually built,from Ailes 12/1945.

But the text of that report [in translation] says, inter alia, that:

'..... it is the model of this aeroplane that is represented in the two photographs, that we reproduce above.'

and it goes on to talk about the engine which it is envisaged will power the D.S.10 and the tests that it will undergo. I can find nothing in the report that says or suggests that, in December 1945, a full scale DS.10 had been built or had flown. Maybe later reports will establish this. I keep an open mind.
