The 3-view in your post # 36 is the FK.33 I think.

This was not a project as far as I know...

That's right my dear Lark,but a little known aircraft.

Perhaps , but it was at least well known in the Netherlands
since it was the first 3-engined transport aircraft in that country
and for a time , the most heavy.
It even received a nickname coming on the two last letters of it's registration
- - DD "Dikke Dirk"... (fat Dirk)

Actually the FK-46 twin sports/trainer aircraft, was built and flew for the first time in 1933. Total production was 13. There is a good description in Theo Wesselink's book 'Koolhoven Vliegtuigen'.

Hi,

Unfortunately,the Koolhoven Ontwerp 1099 & 1101 were mentioned in Luchtvaartkennis
magazine of 1990,but as know in my files;

Ontwerp-1099 was a twin engined monoplane bomber Project of 1934,powered by two Rolls-
Royce Kestrel engines
Ontwerp-1101 was a single seat biplane fighter Project of 1935,powered by one 815 hp Lorraine
Petrel engine

By courtesy of lark, here's a drawing of the "ontwerp 1099" twin engined bomber
from "Frits Koolhoven en zijn vliegtuigproductie" by Dirk Top. The side view showing
two different shapes of the fins.

Very few info is available of this project..

It was high wing 3-engined flying boat proposed
for the Dutch MLD - Marine Luchtvaart Dienst or Air Service.

A drawing of this project was shown to Prince Berhard during his visit
to the Koolhoven works on 19 November 1936.

Exept for an artist impression made by Justus van Hattum
who was at the time 'inhouse' artist with Koolhoven nothing
more is known of this rather impressive flying boat.

(illustration : see the Koolhoven Flying boat thread.)

It had a retractable landing gear and the two engines mounted at the lower wing,the fuselAGe
was very closed to Douglas DC-3.

The floatplane shown with the drawings of the F.K.31 mentioned as F.K.34 is wrong. This was the F.K.31 on floats.
The F.K.34 was a Finnish fuselage with a watercooled engine.
