Trawling through the internet for photographs of the Short Skyvan, I chanced upon this image.

Try as I may, so far I have been unable to identify the twin-engined aircraft behind the Skyvan.

Does anyone know what it is?

The original photograph can be found here:

I saw this plane outside the Dornier museum in Friedrichshafen in 2014. Interesting museum full of unusual planes. Its in Germany on Lake Constance ( Bodensee) near the borders with Austria & Switzerland.

Inside is another plane of similar configuration.

Could make an interesting model especially the rounded fuselage version.

What I like about it is the engine and fixed landing gear arrangement.

The original Do-28 was piston engine powered, this one looks like the G92 turbine variant. The one inside the museum is one of the early A/B/C series, much smaller (6 passengers versus 13).
