Ok, it's a pity.
Couldn't find it via reverse picture search, too, but the big two bladed props
and the big wheels make me think of a rubber band powered model ...
I agree with that, and with Boxman's suggestion that it was based on the Loadmaster

Here's a Burnelli type I previously didn't know, the X-3 "Guggenheim" prototype (source: Jahrbuch der Luftfahrt 1931-32):
Here is some quality newsreel footage of the Burnelli GX-3 (a.k.a., Burnelli X-3, and Uppercu-Burnelli UB-SS), reg. NX-124H (X-124H) (c/n 10), taxiing and flying at Mitchel Field, Long Island (circa ~1929) as part of a Guggenheim Safety Plane ("Guggenheim Safe Aircraft Competition") demonstration (from 18-sec to the 54-sec mark).

Dear friends,
I found randomly this Burnelli's project:

https://patentimages.storage.googleapis.com/63/ea/c4/fbc222825d7b09/US2380289.pdf

I don't know what it is: it looks like a sort of attack aircarft...
Here I share even a model of the X-BAB-3: hope you'll enjoy (pinterest source: https://www.pinterest.co.uk/fong0457/abandoned-projects-usa/).
Best Regards.

Any idea if the Uppercu-Burnelli UB-14 was the same as the Model 101? I found an article that said that the aircraft which was under development in March of 1935 was a "Burnelli Type 101" (Flight, March 14, 1935, pg. 290). The aircraft UB-14 had already flown (1934), therefore I am thinking that the UB-14 was possibly the Model 101. Any thoughts?

Anyone ever come across a single-engined/single-seater Burnelli design with the cockpit below and aft of the overwing engine? Might even be a Cunliffe-Owen design based on Burnelli's configuration.

Dear Lark directed me to this link http://www.jitterbuzz.com/MAN_1939_12.html
with a Burnelli design which is not famous: CB-34.
The related patent is at http://www.google.com/patents/about?id=RaxEAAAAEBAJ&dq=patent:2286341
In the Putnam book “Canadian aircraft since 1909” page 170 (CCF/Burneli CBY-3 Loadmaster entry) I read :
The Canadian Car and Foundry company did not build the UB-14 but in 1938 proposed building the CB-34. It was considerably larger than the UB-14 and was to be powered by three Wright GR-1820-G100 Cyclone engines and was to have a loaded weight of 33,000lb (14,982kg). Have it been built it would have been the only trimotored Burnelli aircraft, but it was not proceeded with almost certainly because of the British orders for Hawker Hurricanes.”
And from the book- Справочник по иностранным самолетам 1940,

here is a Model for CB-34.

Nice finds on this page. I had seen only one picture of the wind tunnel model before this. Here's a link to the actual tri-motor mock-up of the CB-34. To me, this showed CC&F's intentions. They intended to build this bomber had Burnelli won the contracts to build bombers from the UB-14 design which CC&F expected to happen. You don't spend the time, money and effort like this without expectations for contracts. It would have been an awesome addition to help end the war.

In case you haven't heard, the CBY-3 restoration is almost complete. I was told they're expecting to have a 75th anniversary themed unveiling in the summer of 2020. I'm gonna be there.

Other early Burnelli projects include the 1915 Burnelli-Carisi powered aircraft (built with friend John Carisi); the 1916 Burnelli Continental KB-1;and the 1917 Burnelli Continental Military Biplane.

Other aircraft that Burnelli developed were the Christmas Bullet and the Lawson Airliner (Burnelli worked as Chief engineer or a designer on both projects, but deserve their own separate threads).
