Haven't proposed one of my contests with no prize for a while... This is difficult (not REALLY difficult) but feasible. I can say it is WW2-era.
Now the ball is in your court, gentlemen...

Hi!

Two very obvious alternatives  - Burnelli and Cunliff-Owen.
Am I right?

Douglas XCG-19, perhaps? Or any of the unbuilt CG- cargo gliders?

The drawing style says Savoia Marchetti to me. Picking a type number is more challenging; SM-99?

I agree with you red admiral, but S.M.99? I believe a forrunner or a later version of the S.M.104... ??? (or S.M.105/106)

Hi Maveric;

It is not SM.104 or SM.105,and SM.106 and SM.107 were not a twin boom aircraft,
I agree with my dear Lark or it is from Germany,I displayed a concept looks like it
from many months,but I don't remember the name of the designer now.

Hesham, you´re right S.M.106 is not a twin boom transport, but why not S.M.104 or 105?

Maybe a project by Alcor...
...the design of the props...

Maveric;

I have the drawing for SM.104,it is not for it,and the SM.105 was here;
http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,5390.0/highlight,sm+105.html

and for SM.106,SM.107 and even SM.109 were a normal transport aircraft
projects and they haven't a twin boom configuration.

I still go for "American", personally. Perhaps not a CG- project, but something from the same era, i.e. circa 1942.

- have to remember all that SM-10X designations are all post-war. Anyway, it's nor American. And it is not M.archetti's. And, Paul, it isn't Bartini's. _h, and it's not English nor German..
