It's a very famous German. But I think I was a little overzealous with the black texta...with one spot that shouldn't be black.

Your control Reg!

Goodnight!

Spit and Skwinty: Neither. One hemisphere correct, the other wrong.

I should take my own advice about undercarriage not looking right.

Skytrain, it is (in my source) FMA Ae.C.2, but they are basically versions/derivatives of the same aircraft.

Over to you

Swinty, I thought your comment on the undercarriage was about it possibly being Ryan PT 22, which definitely has different u/c. I dont think the silhouette is that far off FMA Ae.C.2 -,

Thanks Reg. Yes as you say the ME1 and the C2 are the same machine. The ME1 is actually the military version. Good challenge.

Not got anything ready really, so a quick post of a version of something we've had before. Justified as it has some significant differences.
