Ki-48 installation
Googled that - it does look similar! But not a Jap.

Welcome zlin - not a Junkers mate.

Is this aircraft from the USA? There appears to be a step change in the fuselage contours forward of the retractable gun platform similar to the Martin Maryland/Baltimore. Another aircraft that had a retractable ventral gun was the Vultee V-11 but that aircraft did not have such a step change.

Morning Mel!

Vultee V-11
It is this machine according to the caption.

but that aircraft did not have such a step change.
Can't honestly say, maybe the photo was an early mock-up?

Either way mate - your control.

It was too easy to find by a simple bit of Google action.

It is not the Pilgrim 100, Irishair. This aircraft was from a little earlier; mid 1920s.

Travelaire "Woolaroc" now on display at the museum of the same name near Bartlesville, OK
The first aircraft to fly to Hawaii in the Dole Air Race. As I'm only a couple of hours north of its current location, I'm afraid I'll be asleep when the UK resumes so OH.
