Sorry! didn't realise you wanted one as nobody indicated they were still interested.
Your photo looks like something Ryan-ey?

Not a Ryan. Including a prototype, 101 were produced.

Sorry Mel, not a Seversky. The design of the aircraft is not from the U.S., but the engine is.

Was the engine the Wright Whirlwind R-975-E3 or P & W Wasp Junior?

Neither a Wright nor a P&W. It is a radial though.

The mystery aircraft's maiden flight was in 1940. Production commenced in 1941 and was completed in June, 1942.

It's Canadian, it's a Fleet Fort. In the CWH, IIRC?

CWH Fleet Fort Page

Although I think the pic is of their 'half and half' restoration, rather than the 'airworthy' one.

You guys do am amazing work digging into the deepest depths for so many cockpits. I must start a dig and have some on file.

Oh dear, JDK, a bit harsh there.
I don't think we should deter anybody from having a guess even if they have no picture to offer if they get it right.
Since I started this thread back in Sep. '05 I have often relied on winners throwing open the door to anybody to post because I rarely get one right !! It gives me the chance to post a picture.
It keeps the thread going.

I am looking forward to a new cockpit photo. PLEASE! ANYONE? Otherwise we have to determine Tim Inder's post #268 , which I thought, incorrectly, was a replica Supermarine S5 racer.
