Tidying up is boring and annoying, but ... sometimes you'll find again things,
you were missing for a long time.
Aeroplane Monthly had a competition in the August 1994 issue. In the attached
picture, you should find and name (!) 13 aircraft. Quite obvious are the B 29 in
the cart and the Spitfire in the back of the waggon on the left. Everytime I saw
this picture again, I searched again and I found 11 aircraft still yet.
Ok, it's a little bit too late, to win the price, nevertheless : Who of you can find
them all ?

Typhoon
Hurricane
F4U,
P51D,
B-26,
one more in the tree that I can't identify (He-100? Me-109?)
one over the tunnel (B-24?)
one in front of the girl - front view - can't identify (FW-190?)
something that looks like Lancaster (or Stirling?)

higher resolution would be helpful

Ok, if a moderator asks for ... ;)
It's a Cummings cartoon from a wartime aircraft recognition book
... and in the tree or bush above the cyclist, there's a Do 217 ...

I think the "other" one in the tree is a Tony and there appears to be a Val on the train car (going away). I think there is a late model Junkers (188?) in the bush at the right of the picture as well.

I think the dog is drinking out of a Saro Lerwick.

"I think the dog is drinking out of a Saro Lerwick."
Good clue, if we accept this, we have twelve of the thirteen ! 8)
Unfortunately, I've never seen the solution ...

Thank you, Sferrin, and even in colour !
My own "control sheet" always was just with pencils marks .
I've just added Kellys Saro Lerwick. Is it, or is it not ?
To me, the cyclist lwlays was suspicious, but I couldn't find
anything in or around him ...

Well the station guard on the platform in the very front is some kind of plane. The head is a tail fin and the arse is a canopy. Some sort of Yak fighter perhaps?
Cheers, Woody

Here... we're up to 12, excluding Kelly's Saro Lerwick. I'm not 100% on that, but its the best candidate so far.

If you count the train driver's moustach that's 13.

The cyclist's bike looks like some kind of early monoplane/biplane hidden in it somehow, but not quite.

Great, thank you !
Never thought, that the picture in Aeroplane Monthly wasn't
complete. Even then the Ki-43 in the cow is hard enough !
