Roost: It doesn't look like any Sunderland I can find pictures of.

Mike: LOL, good question, but then again, there are many planes where you can't see the nose, but that's usually due to a very high instrument-panel, like I remember from the Cardinal flight, which is also one reason I like the Commander since it's panel seems more in proportion and with better views while still having good space for all gauges and switches.
