American mono plane not military and of somewhat later date.
I think the altitude gauge is quite overrated.

American instruments. A lot of extra knobs and dials where legs should go!

An American trainer, equipped for test flying?

Can`t make up my mind about this; looks in part like a `40s fighter/trainer,factory built,but the main panel looks like a `homebuilt` affair,probably American...also there is a significant mark on the ASI at 140 kts,but no other for Vmax,,and if it is single pointer,still seems limiting.There is a mark at 36" on the boost,which suggests it is powered in 450-600 hp range (+3lbs in old money)... So ,tandem/single,biplane or mono.....?

Not unique or a one-off.

A total of 151 were built but only two survive and three reproductions are on exhibit.

A fighter......

Hi dook,

just got in and got a few hours to kill, I thought this would have been nabbed by now with those clues!

Gotta be a Boeing P-26 Peashooter innit?

I wondered when you would pitch up.

I thought there were enough clues as well - I was about to add the engine.

Boeing Peashooter innit.

All yours.

….and into Photoshop it goes.

I see what looks like Cyrillic on the two labels, no letters on the T&S indicator, and a strange instrument to the right of it. Buttons on the stick.

This wouldn't be a Russian fighter would it ?
