Recognize This?

It is a photo of the aircraft that this model replicates. Thanks to my nephew I now know it is a Vickers Vedettee . The Vedettee first appeared in the 1920's and was built specifically for use in Canada. It was mainly used by the Royal Canadian Air Force for surveying and photographing forests. Most of the topographical maps of Canada are based on the photos taken from these aircraft.

Knowing one of the photos I bought is based on a real aircraft gives me hope for the other two photos. I'm still trying to identify which aircraft those models represent.

Go here and here to view those photos.
