The first one I put up turned out to be too tough. (I even had it wrong!) Maybe this one will be a little easier?

Nope. The landing gear indicator lights are in the upper right. There are also some other indicator lights above and to the left of the orange cross out at the bottom center.

The indicators are really unreadable however there seems to be too many engine indicators for single engine aircraft. But doesn't look like twin engine aircraft. I would say something with mixed propulsion like Ryan FR.

B-25J?


Something like that would be my guess. An aggressive internet search shows that North American used a very similar cockpit panel for their XB-21 and B-25 aircaft. While each cockpit can be easily modified for the needs of the aircraft/mission, the general configuration so closely matches a B-25's that I just got to conclude it is something very close and by the same manufacturer.

If it's not B-25, I'll stump for A/B-26. Too wide for a one-man cockpit.

What they said.

Gunsight selector and bomb bay doors narrows your choice down quite a bit.

It is in fact a B-25 instrument panel. I have a bunch more instrument panel pictures if anyone is interested.
