It's not a conclusion - it's just a hint for where players may wish to look if they don't know about that site.

It's called sharing knowledge.

Grammatically, it certainly looks like a conclusion. As for my words, well, they might be a hint...

dook, it might help if I say that your earlier statement (1391) met two out of three of the promises prior to sworn testimony.

...which is a cryptic way of saying that there’s more than just ‘US’ on that instrument.

Yes, but I can't see what the full word is.

Might the engine be supercharged ?

I have been looking at the instrument to the left of the clock and wondering if it's an early machmeter.

It displays a decimal point in front of the numbers.

Yes, single-stage geared supercharged.

I'm afraid I don't know for certain what the instrument is, though I could take a guess with a very high degree of certainty that you're wrong and right in that order.

You'd have to define 'pedestrian'...

Not American!

I'd define it as you'd be better off with a Ferrari speedometer than a Mach meter.................

Again? So quickly? I'm responding as promptly as I can but I do have a life...

Not British...

Fitting a Ferrari ASI would not be a wise thing to do, but compressibility effects are not a concern.

I am struggling with this one and nobody is posting any shots at it.

I thought it might be German such as a Klemm but can find nothing.

May we have a clue ?

You thought it might be German..? Maybe this image of the wing will help (with apologies for ‘non-cockpit’ content):

The cowling slots are rather reminiscent of the Polikarpov I-16, which was used by the Finnish... and as this is obviously the two-seat, open cockpit, trainer version... then it must be a Polikarpov I-16 UTI.
