The Laté 673 was a gem for Tophe ! A project for a single engined, twin-boom
floatplane fighter with a tractor prop and retractable floats. It was a pre-war project.

the Nord 1800 is mentioned in "Les Avions De Combat Francais", but without drawing, too,
and the SOCATA X-270 and a NC.1150 are unknown to me.
We need some kind of visualisation ....

Old posts, I know, but the Scintex ML 145 wasn't an unbuilt project - the prototype flew in May 1961.

Ditto for Boisavia 'projects'...

... and the SFCA VEMA 51:
http://www.aviastar.org/air/france/sfca_vema-51.php

Mylius Flugzeugwerk isn't a French firm but German (from Bitburg). The 4-seat My-104 and 2-seat My-103/180 remained unbuilt but, as Maveric said, four of the My-103/200 series were constructed.

Hi Hesham :)
Maybe the AS-10 which may have flown in December 1945?. Sadly I do not have a photo and never seen one! . This aircraft may also have been referred to as the Durenleau DS-10 or as Durendeaux D-510,
Engine as mentioned by you a 40hp Train 4T, wingspan 26.25ft, max. speed 95mph.
Have never seen a F-W or F-P registration.

Hi,

the Bourgois-Senemaud AT-50 or AM-50 was probably a Project for sesquiplane with
floats as a seaplane,powered by one 50 hp Anzani engine in 1928.

Hi Hesham :)
I think that this project was indeed by SCAN as the SCAN-40 Scanton in/around 1947.
This is info I collected over the years and maybe it is of some help to you.
2-seat sport
one 70-75hp Roussell 1600cc piston engine
estimated max. speed 125 mph, range 625 miles
wingspan 31.824ft; length 22.965ft
DETAILS: This twin tail boom, pusher engine, light plane was an original design 2-seater of Mr. Roussel, who also developed the 1600cc engine. Work on the aircraft and the engine commenced in 1947 and in April of that year construction of the prototype was started in the SCAN (Société de Construction Aéro-Navale) works under the SCAN-40 Scanton designation. The work by SCAN on the aircraft was soon stopped, but from November 1950 continued by the designer and the aircraft was renamed as the Roussel Model 40 Hirondelle. The aircraft was ready for ground tests and taxi trials in February 1952, but work soon stopped (1953) and the aircraft was not actually flight tested.
Production: 1

Hi Hesham :)
The X-28 is better known as the Williams X-28 (Motorfly) and I do not know whether this it true but possibly Wiliams was a pseudoniem for a Mr. Mourlot who may have been the (co)designer. Reportedly the first X-28 (Arbogast) already appeared in 1937, but only after WW2 further examples were built in France under various names/designations.
I am sure that fellow-members have more accurate info on the X-28 familly.

Attached a photo of X-28 F-PEAT (F-WEAT)

Yes, Max Williams was the pseudonym of Max Mourlot (q.v. https://www.facebook.com/Musee.Aviation.Angers/posts/le-max-williams-mw-25-n-36-construit-en-1953-par-la%C3%A9roclub-de-moulins-a-%C3%A9t%C3%A9-conf/1107860992616466/ - the author of which, I suspect, is Christian Ravel)
