It does seem that Mel misread you original answer!

However, looking at the cockpit photos on the Airwar site, I believe that the overall layout of the instrument panel and windscreen of the Junkers G 23 is a better match ??

dashfan Please accept my sincere apologies in misreading your original post. Please put it down to the lateness of the hour. However whilst the cockpit in the challenge photo is similar to that of the G 24 the aircraft concerned was not a G 24. It had some very close connection with the G 24 but it was not a civilian type.
Thankas Trevor for your post this aircraft was not a G 23

Thanks Mel,

Being closely related to the G 24 and non military I now think it's probably the K 30 ??

Thanks Mel, as dash7fan said, a good challenge, I see now I should have delved a bit further on Airwar as they seem to have a photo very like , if not the same as your picture!

Rather less complex cockpit on this one!!

Based on the ammunition counters these could be Spandau machine guns?

TC,

Your challenge has now been up for nearly 48 hours.

For what it's worth I think it's the Siemens-Schuckert D3.

Well, it's not worth very much now is it mate! You are quite correct, but AFAIK you cannot post yet, so please declare an Open House and bump your counter up another one!!

This is a good one, Mel. I’ve checked all the usual suspects and found nothing that’s even close. I’ve been concentrating on the location of the engine instruments and the compass.

Chosing an arbitrary date, is this pre- or post-1942?
