Looks so. Different antenna though.

btw. did you know, that while the wings are different, they are technically interchangeable between DC 2 and 3? And that there was a 3 that flew to safety using single DC-2 and singe DC-3 wing, in WWII?

And that there are marvelous representations for both DC-2 and DC-3 for MS Flight Simulator, so you can pretend to fly one of the great airliners? ::type:: ::wave::

seems possible... Forgot the F.VII was originally single-engined...
Good to see some dutch planes in here though, we do have some other nice (and possibly tricky) ones :P

The angle is quite fishy... hiding them under the wings...

hint: one subtle but noticeable difference with VIIa is for example gear strut. here you can see it starting pretty thick right by the wheel, on F-VIIa it was thin at the wheel, then it got thick midway, and thin again by the wing.

Also reading back, "it is not quite dutch..." is not the best choice of wording.

Therefore, revision 1: It is dutch and it isnt.

Close, but not quite. Sorry for the delay though.

I will let it go though. It is Avia F.VIIb/3m
