Hey sycamore. I've spoken to the judges and they're all in agreement that it's a classic case of ''we know what you meant."
Punch in "slewed-wing" and you get "oblique-wing" and you get the AD-1.

So, over to you.

`Strictly` speaking,not the XTBF-1....However it is a TBM -1/1C,/Tarpon,/Avenger 1/II....and now a real one...

You have control D26...they are pretty heavy...!!
This is actually a TBM-3R...But close enough for Govt.Work..

Lots of levers and cranks. Interesting the "fine" RPM indicator with 2 pointers, one for the hundreds and one for the thousends!

Open house, please.

No.`2` is the prop pitch control,rotated to increase/decrease as a `vernier` adjustment to the `coarser setting of RPM pushing it `in/out`..

Based on the metric altimeter and the rotatable ring around the top instrument, eastern European? Possibly Czech?

Asturias56, I was referring to the photo I posted having been handed control by sycamore.

I'm not sure why you also posted a photo?
