I have the drawing but it doesn't agree with others I have found... and I
have yet to find a clear picture of the tail of a R.11. A few months ago
someone posted a link with pictures of a German Album on sale on Ebay, and
these show a French Caudron bomber captured and being hauled away, including
a nice shot of the tail... but according to my refs the plane could be a
Caudron R.4 or something like that (completely different nacelles, etc.).
Anyway, the R.4 seems to have parallel ribs. And I have yet to know if they
coincide with the positions of the control surfaces...
