Seventy plus years of being an aeroplane nut helps! Memory goes back to seeing the Bristol Brabazon fly over Edinburgh. Add to that a bookshelf full of reference books and you have your answer!

And for those of us not into 70 years of being a nut ... 40 years + reference library + a job years while at Uni watching hundreds of hours of film and building an index to the archive - getting paid

Yes, Googles algorithms find virtually everything that has ever been posted for public display. And I've spent 20 yrs fine-tuning my internet searching abilities.   As a little thread drift

Yes, it's the Dingbat alright. Can't answer on the engine, and it's too late to start digging around again.

Sheer, pure guess. Pilot Sprite, designed by Pilot magazine in UK a lot of years ago, or another, because of the tug inference, Mitchell-Proctor Kittiwake?

Kittiwake has the same very forward noseleg as the pic but not sure they had taper on the outer panel of the wing.  

Practavia sprite did not to my recall have the outboard dihedrtal but straight sihedetalfeom rhe wing root.

It is an ACBA Midour glider tug made by the Aéro Club du Bas Armagnac, France, 1990s.

I was going to post that it was made by Socata, it looked so darn French, but I searched every Socata model and drew a blank.
