Quality is fine.
We have solved pictures of much worse quality.

oldpax, it looks American to me, particularly the ASI and the ignition switch.

I did search for C-FARA and found 2 registrations of different/ non-matching type.
Couldn’t decipher the type (on my phone) so went searching for side-by-side stick cockpits.

This is the Fairchild 24 as modelled for FSX by Lionheart Creations.
Perhaps still better to wipe out registration and type in the future.
It seems some fellow Ppruners let this one pass because of that.
Could also be that it is an animated picture but I personally have no problem with the way of detail and accuracy this one has been done.

Keep them coming!

SLB, Yes, correct - it is a Fairchild 24. Sorry if I didn't follow the rules of this thread correctly, will try to do better next time. Over to you!!

It might be that this has been played before.
But not in color:

The control columns look a bit like a (old) Beech

It is a one-off but build by professional manufacturer(s).
No idea were they acquired all parts but it is not considered American because of the yokes.

Time for some clues:
It already featured in 2009 in black and white.
From his preferences displayed in these threads I would have expected a reply from JHieminga.

I'm trying hard SLB.... but I haven't cracked this particular puzzle yet.

I'm guessing a European two-seater with perhaps a strange engine placement seeing as the RPM indicator has some yellow bands. That might be due to a propshaft harmonic issue.... but I'm really guessing here. The fact that it has two recent Trig radios in that colour shot implies that it still flies, or did until recently.

No in Germany.
