Looking at the photos on the web it seems the tail was modified a little at some point and has a more rounded appearance on at least 2 aircraft. Only a few built.

Primark.
Looks like a girlie shop mate? They sell power tools?

No luck my end Ken. If you can't make the answer fit the silhouette, make the silhouette fit an answer...




At your leisure, another clue please Ken...

He's in touch with his feminine side It's alright though, they sell menwear as well. Not a choice for power tools!

Evening Graeme...I like your style

Clue....deisgned as a military trainer/observation aircraft. Not from the US.

So a Lolex then!

By deduction I feel your challenge must therefore be South American.

Kitchen fitter just pitched up - back later.
