That would be the sole remaining TA 152 H-0/R11.

CORRECT!! Well done!!

Fabulous aeroplane it was too - fortunately too late in the war to be a significant problem for the Allies.

D26, You have control!

Very close, but there is room for refinement.

No. There is a gun sight! The type was the main stay during WW2 in a small country. The Schlepp was a different A/c but same engine.

Swiss EKW D-3801? (M.S 412)

The EKW D-3801 it is!
The type was the mainstay of the Swiss Air Force in WW2 together with the Me109E. The D-3801 was licence built from the MS 406 and developed further mainly by installing a 1000 hp engine instead of the 860 HP one. Further development did not come forward as after the war, Switzerland bought 130 P-51D's surplus in Germany. Only a few years later the jet age started, as Switzerland went to buy De Havilland DH 100 Vampires. etc...

The pictures are from the sole airworthy D-3801 HB-RCF (J-143) operated in Switzerland. The owners went to great lengths to have the cockpit as original as possible. Beside a modern radio and transponder only the altimeter and the g-meter are modern, all other stuff is WW2. The picture Noyade has published, is from some years back.

In this case, Noyade has the lead!

D26,
It was perhaps better if you would have blotted out the registration number in the second photo.
Much people are tempted to google it.

You are right SLB, that's an easy way to go. I did blot out the call-sign on the two b/w pictures but didn't get reactions. I will think of that on my next post.
Thanks Noyade, very generous.

Then: control has asw28-866!

Apologies all, I missed the fact control had returned to me. Thank you D26 for the prompt, a quick one I suspect...

Another view, first image posted I suspect is accidentally reversed, I believe this to be correct canopy orientation...

Not a Rene Fournier design, though contemporary with some of his best known marks.
