Your picture is of the same homebuilt airplane PCT. Looks like even the folks at "The Big Book of Planes" got hoodwinked. Here's what a real CL.1 looks like.

It's actually a model of a homebuilt Bowers Flybaby which was modified by the builder to look a little bit like a Junkers CL-1! Not sure if Seagull are aware of this and are trying to pass it off as...
