Ooo. I saw this a long time back in an old book. I think the Beslers were brothers and the plane was steam powered?

You're close. The aircraft is a Travel Air 2000 with a Besler Steam System. Good answer. Next, identify this aircraft.

That's the one according to my book the BL-10 bit is the motorcycle engine used a Bouffort et Landris BL-10

I've never seen a paper model of a Vickers Supermarine S-6B
Here's links of plans for If someone wants to make one
