That one has been posted a while ago. Many might not have seen it, so keep guessing.

Hi cringe
Hope you are well. I too recognize it, mind you it was the coffee machine that did it. Like you I will not spoil it for others.

I would hazard a guess that it's a Nakajima B5N 'Kate'

I wouldn't fancy trying to set up that toredo sight anywhere near my target!

Tim
I reckon your guess is spot-on and there is nothing hazardous about it.

Airbourne Design Supermarine S.5 replica? If it is, I believe it first flew in 1972 and was powered by a Continental IO-360-C engine.

European? I think it is possibly a 50s restoration of a 30s aircraft as that looks like Radio TX/RX of that period on the starboard side below the instrument panel.

Well it has been 72 hours since Tim posted his challenge and you have been the only one to come up with a possible answer so I think you should post one to keep things moving while we wait Tim's answer.

Clue 1. It is not British, but the engine is.
Clue 2. It was designed by an aeronautical engineer from France.

Oops!

I have to apologise for leaving the thread hanging in mid-air so to speak!
I'm back on the case now, so if you'd like to, once Cringe's post has been guessed, mine's still there for the identifying, though if you want to move on I'll understand.
