Thanks, Max!

If the photo was taken from behind the airplane, it would look as if it had only one set of props.

Yep, it is the illusion due to shortening that makes the nose appear more bulky as if it were housing a radial engine...  :D

Not that I don't believe you, but please reveal your pictorial sources. These planes look quite different to my eyes, the wings are OK, but but the engine is, hmm...

My friend got back to me.
See here...

I think I understood everything perfect ...

Her full name is Katherine Elizabeth "Kate" Boyer; is 5 '6 "(1.68 m) and is from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania


Yes indeed, she is a HOT Cookie  :-*
but
What is the Airplane she is on?

Theoretically it is the PBJ-1J with "kate" on top corresponding to the march warbirdpin up girls of 2019 calendar...

The PBJ-1Js that I have found have the nose of gunship.


What makes me doubt is that this has a glass nose as if it were actually a B-25J-NC painted for that purpose.

Three great answers from three great aviation fans!  ]hello2[

This is the B25-PBJ-1J and it is a glass nose version as seen by the picture posted by Lamehawk.
-It is this aircraft... https://www.cafsocal.com/our-aircrafts/our-aircraft-and-history/north-american-pbj/

Here is the full image has seen in the new 2019 "Warbird Pin-Up Girls" Calendar


This is a dificult decision to pick just one winner, even tho you 3 all have guessed the mystery airplane,
I will pass the next post to Lamehawk, if that is ok with guys.

Cheers
MAX

Thank you for the honour  :)

But I'll be ungrateful enough to present a really hard one:

Sure thing good buddy  8)   

Lamehawk, that is a dificult aircraft to track down.
I will begin looking at 1930s racer aircraft. It might be in that category
