Rumor has it that the Navy Department cut funding for the Navy Aviation Branch, something about Battleships Rule, causing some ingenious sailors to make do with what they could scrounge. Who can identify the 11 FG WWI Allied parts used to make this contraption?

The spinner is Morane-Saulnier Bullet, not Siemens-Shuckert (Allied aircraft only). The interplane struts are from the Bristol F2B. The cowling was stolen from a Thomas Morse S4C. The prop belongs to a DH-2. The Lewis gun isn't the SE5's, but I can't find any other airplane in the FG Allied WWI series with that gun as shown.

That's 11 - but what's got that gun?

That's only 10 aircraft.

But, let's see, at first glance, nothing from a Sopwith Camel seems to be part of the agglomeration, yet, if we consider that one of the most important and well known components of a Camel is Snoopy as its driver, and that none of the FG Camels has a Snoopy, then by logical extension this agglomeration, ALSO missing a Snoopy, could be said to represent 11 FG aircraft: 10 donated bits of airframe, and 1 donation of something absent that SHOULD be included. Ahem. 8)
