    As I understand it, there were two different versions of this bird. A two seater and a three seater. If this is in fact the case, other than engine and internal changes, where they the same dimensionally?

    6th photo down in post #1 shows an interesting application of the Balkan Cross, being placed on the nose.

    It looks like the G.1 had several options for armament, too.

    No that is incorrect, there were indeed 2 versions, the original G-1 wasp and the G-1 Mercury. The first one was smaller and meant for export. I must have the difference in dimensions somewhere at home. The Dutch airforce used the Mercury, a much bigger plane. The latter was sometimes used as a three seater in the reconnaisance role, but was generally flown as a two seater.

    The G-1 was one of the first multi-purpose aircraft. It was meant to be a fighter, a divebomber, fighterbomber and a reconnaisance plane. I the 302 was fitted with dive-breaks. You can also see the bomb-bay.

    One of the aircraft (304) had a "bathtub", so there would be a better view down.

    The smaller version Wasp had different nose armament, 2 20mm canons and 2 7.92mm MG's, while the Mercury was fitted with 8 7.92mm MG's in the nose.

    Are there reliable plans for each of the two versions?

    I honestly think the G.1 held a great deal of potential and it's a shame the Dutch didn't have more on hand to challenge the Luftwaffe
