You are right,  Graeme.
These small German civilian/aerobatic/communication/training aircraft from the thirties are so pretty  :)

Over to you

I thought I was seeing a nose wheel - but an optical illusion?

Arado Ar-79?

Cheers LameHawk. I deleted my original reply cause of the 'nose wheel' - but then had a closer look at your photo.  :)

Open House for the moment....
