Thanks Paul. I contacted the museum directly a couple months ago, but I haven't heard anything. My French is pretty lousy. Maybe they're still laughing. :-)
If you manage to get access to this rare bird, the most important dimensions are the length of the nose from the leading edge of the lower wing, and the size of the nose radiator. If they turn you loose on it, then any other dimensions would be icing on the cake. The supplemental radiator, exhaust pipes, and prop, plus anything else that is unique to the Belgian version would all help in making the drawing a better job.
If they have any details of the history of this particular machine, I think it would make the basis of a nice article for one of the journals.

Belgian listees who might be able to help.
Ahhh...imagining that irresistible "new car" smell?
