But you didn't know how long I was going to be getting my snout out of the trough and preparing the next challenge (and neither did I)

Here it is, note that like the seats, the radio isn't fitted yet

Goodnight now - see you tomorrow.

I get a feeling it could be British; possibly something from a shed in Woodley...Miles Aerovan...??
I say that based on the cockpit layout,`knobs` all seem to be the same ,for multiple function,and rudder pedals from a church organ.....maybe even a cuckoo clock pops out of the centre panel... off to bed...

Lockheed C-40A
There are much slightly variations with 10-A 12-A
But I think 40-A is the best fit

Hi dook,

I just found your image on Harold A Skaarup's Webpage and it's captioned Cockpit of Lockheed L-212 (Serial No. 7642)

Good shooting TC.

L-212 it is indeed.

However, I think Bear was so close, but TC hit it exactly.

TC has the thread.

I think this one will take a lot of "digging out".
