Guessing late '20s early '30s twin. Slightly confused by the German turn and slip when most other bits appear to be in English. No idea but something makes me guess something Dutch?

Hangarrat,


You are correct about the country. To make it a bitt aessier, the year is 1934.

Espresso machine?

Seriously though, Fokker F8?

To put Flying Palm Tree out of the "awaiting a reply" angst, I submit the mystery cockpit just might be a Koolhoven FK.48.

Correct, it is the cockpit from the Koolhoven FK 48. Only one FK 48 was built in 1934.

Regards,

Mathieu.

The quadrant is very Falco.

So I'll hazard that it is one.

Practavia did a sprite but I don't think Trago did. Anyhow, the mystery machine has retractable wheels (see left side of panel with some arty indicators).

Sorry, not a Falco, nor a Practavia Sprite.

Ich glaube, das die antigooglebildversucherungschalter in die 'sucherung möglich' position gelassen wurde.
