I do like it, thanks.
I had heard of the "Albert bifuselage" in Aviation Magazine #478 as after 1933 and well before 1940, without a drawing. Your source is far richer, for this 1936 project, with an unusual reason to be a twin-boomer: push-pull engines with one of the propeller used as brake in dive-bombing. Unusual.

Here is a slightly better scan of the Albert bifuselage fighter project from the German weekly Flugsport (in this case I think their plan was taken directly from Flight).

(translated and adapted from the French Wikipedia)

Edouard Albert was a French licensed touring pilot and the nephew of Alphonse Tellier, whose seaplanes were famous during the First World War.

Albert commissioned engineer Albert Duhamel to study a touring monoplane designated TE-1 as a tribute to Tellier, then went on to create the Société Anonyme des Avions Albert (which translates as Albert Aeroplanes, Ltd.). The firm developed a handful of touring aircraft as well as a low-wing monoplane for the Coupe Deutsch de la Meurthe before fading from sight in 1934.
  • Albert TE-1 : Single-seat touring monoplane with high cantilever wing and wooden undercarriage. Only one prototype was built [F-AIVA]. It could reach 150 km/h in 1926 with a radial 40 hp Salmson 9Ad engine.
  • Albert A-10 : Four-seat parasol monoplane transport with a 100 hp Hispano-Suiza 6Pa engine. Only one example built [F-AJFX], which first flew on July 10, 1929.
  • Albert A-20 : Two-seat high-wing monoplane mail aircraft with conventional undercarriage, which first flew on November 21, 1929. Being underpowered with its two 60 hp Walter engines, it was quickly refitted with 80 hp Armstrong Siddeley Genet engines, but arose no interest and was never even registered.
  • Albert A-60 : This tandem-seater touring aircraft with open cockpits was similar to many comparable types of its time. It was a low wing monoplane with conventional undercarriage covered with wheelpants. Powered by a neatly-cowled 70 hp radial Walter Nz 70 engine — with only the cylinder caps protruding — it could reach 172 km/h with a 1000 km range. Only one example was built [F-AJFY].
  • Albert 140: Low-wing monoplane racer with conventional undercarriage, designed for participation in the 1933 edition of the Coupe Deutsch de la Meurthe and powered by a 220 hp Régnier R-6 engine. Only one was built.
Attached is a photo of the Albert A-10.

It sounds like it's time for an Albert designations thread. Pics of the TE.1 and A.20 are available at http://www.aviastar.org/air/france/a_albert.php and more info and pics of other models at http://www.aviafrance.com/constructeur.php?ID_CONSTRUCTEUR=78. Unfortunately the Aviafrance site is currently down. Too bad about the A.20, it was a neat little twin and might have found a useful nice if it could maintain altitude one one engine with the Genet (unlikely). Those signature Albert wings with the eliptical leading edge and straight trailing edge on various models sure are pretty.

Actually I nearly moved this whole topic to the Designations section yesterday. It's clearly a problem with those minor companies to clearly separate the designations thread and projects thread...
