My THK list. Mostly the same info ... but at least it is Google friendly
Türk Hava Kurumu Uçak Fabrikası - Turkish Air Agency Aircraft Factory
Numbered THK Uçak Fabrikası aircraft designations were applied only to original designs. So, for example, the licensed THK-Miles 14 Magister bears no relationship to the THK-14 (a 2-seat training glider).
Designations may be rendered as T.H.K.1 or THK.1 but the most common style seen in modern Turkish publications is THK-1 (so I have stuck to that hyphenated form throughout).
Since THK designs were taken over by MKE, I've added 'MKEK' designations at the bottom for convenience.

Rather than add another designation subject heading, I thought put the aircraft of minor Turkish designer, Vecihi Hürkus, here. At first better known as a pilot, Vecihi seems to have begun by designing aircraft from salvage parts. Can anyone add to this list?
Designs are designated with Roman numerals ... sometimes shown with prefixes -- 'K' and 'SK' -- and prefixes 'STM' and 'D'. The 'D', for Deniz/Sea, was applied to floatplanes. Perhaps a Turkish memeber could suggest what the other letters refer to?
The aircraft pictured in the link about the model XV is actually the Vecihi XVI D (model XVI mounted on floats).
The actual Vecihi XV was a different low-wing three-seat monoplane registered TC-S.III, see http://www.tayyareci.com/bagisucak/vecihiXV.asp
According to the book Turkish Aircraft Production by Tuncay Deniz, one example each was made of the XV and XVI. The XVI D was the same example mounted on floats.
In the same source, it is said that the XIV D is one of the two XIV built, mounted on floats, and the aircraft registered TC-S.V is described as "a modernized version of the Vecihi XIV".
By the way, maybe one should change the heading to "Turkish aircraft designations" ?
