Hi,

The Wibault-230T was three engined transport aircraft project,
but I have no more details.

Just discovered this Wibault-Boccaccio biplane from World War I.

Didn't even know Wibault was already active in aviation at that time!

A better view of the Wibault-Boccaccio, now only called a Wibault (although it seems to be the same type):

The Wibault 313 (also found variously as the Wibault Wib 313 or Wibault-Penhoët Wib 313) was a single engine, single seat low wing monoplane fighter submitted to the 1931 C1 (single-seat fighter) competition (won by the Dewoitine D.500). Only one prototype was built.

More info on Wikipedia and on AviaFrance.

Again, that caption has a typo -- it should be Boccaccio (after Paul Boccaccio) not 'Boccacio'.

Thanks for the tip, I've corrected to spelling in the posts at least.

- The Wibault 311 was a single seat fighter with Farman engine

Curiously, my very first 3d project was about WIbault, I've re-created as a little model.
Enjoy!

I also really liked your model. In fact, I happened to be discussing jet-like propeller-driven designs over at homebuiltairplanes.com and shared your images over there with a link back to this page. I hope you don't mind. Cheers, Matthew

Random question, what is the point of having the shorter biplane wing on the top? I have seen inverted sesquiplane designs with the smaller, narrower-chord wing on top to improve the pilot/observer's visibility or the gunner's field of fire but I don't see the advantage in this case.

From Aviation magazine 1963,

here is a small Info about Wib.364,maybe a Project ?;

Presented by Ribière, at the Cours of the Tour de France of prototypes which takes place from September 9 to 17,
1933, the Wibault 360 will then be shared with Noël-Noël and Fernandel the star of the film “Adémaï Aviator ”. After
the two copies of 362, which succeeds, in more powerful, to 360, and is intended for STAé, we see, in 1933, a new derivative, structured slightly different, the type 364. An annular cover Wibauit, slit, covers its Gnome-Rhône engine
500 hp.
