I think this is indeed a Siebel Si204A-1.
Probably PH-NAV owned by Prince Bernhard for a short period in 1946-47.
This same aircraft crashed as EC-ADB in Spain 1948.

I found matching photos of the cockpit with curtains and photos of same door ladder and matching side windows.



Open House called.

If there are no takers for the open house,
I also have a cockpit photo of the wing commander Gibbsí
grandson, more widely known as Mr. WA van Buren.

I had not yet searched myself, but I did not expect it to last very long.
I am curious about Jelleís next challenge.

When I saw that picture, I imagined an early design meeting:
OK chaps. Here's the cockpit mockup. I want you to fill it with as many TVs, dials, knobs, switches, bells and whistles as you can. Don't worry about this new-fangled ergonomics fad!
