Quite correct, a Mauboussin M.12x Corsaire. Amazing to think Pierre Mauboussin designed aircraft, jewellery, watches, and even a car!



Noyade has control.

Mmm. Not sure 'designed' is the right word...

Cheers 886.
There are soooo many similar looking machines out there to the Mauboussin.
Thankfully, this is not one of them.

You had me at Convair.
Over to you dash7fan.

As I understand, it's a Convair VC-131D configured to look like a TAA Convair 340.

VH-TAA Convair 340-67

The guide that showed us through the aircraft related a story how it was previously owned by a South African railway magnate that decked out the interior to look like a railway carriage - including the toilet.

I recognise those Ford Cortina air vents.
I had to make a new RH panel for a Pup for a new radio fit back when Pontius was a pilot.

Not to waste the supplementary image whilst we await the clock...



I recall thinking as a child how 'modern' they looked on the Surrey & Kent apron at Biggin Hill in the early 70's, and being thrilled at the air vents since Dad was a confirmed Ford man!

All will be confirmed once 24 hours has elapsed.

Yes UV it's the Beagle B.121 Pup, and quite correct the pictures are not the same airframe. 24 has elapsed, UV has control.

The upholstery shows it's a different trim level. Was there a Ghia?

No, but there was an 'S' model - the Bulldog.

Not sure how long a vinyl roof would last.
