An absence of flaps also... otherwise my first thought.

Not American.
No radial upfront.
Designed as an agricultural aircraft - unsuccessful - ended up towing advertising banners.
Only one built. First flight in 1957 - destroyed in storm 1965.

Looks a bit like the Argentinian Dinfia IA 46 Ranquel series - but they built a few of those and the dimensions aren't right

I can't remember what it is, just happened upon the report some years ago. With before and after photos.

Well, you have provided a name Beamr - so it's yours if you want.

for me it is impossible to say if it is the very first, but it is one of the early versions definately, not a production unit.

quite correct. To me it appears to be V1 based on the radiator cowling, it is definately somewhere between V1 and V8 (excluding V7) as it is missing the bubble canopy and it has earlier tail. It might not be the V5 as those were Imperial Japanese Army evaluation units with red tails and this appears to have a swastika on the tail.

All yours Noyade.
