I'd guess that it's an Arkangelski (sp?) Ar-2 tricycle gear tested, but that still doesn't explain the braces under the fuselage...

Regular SB-2, yes. SB-2M-103, to be precise.

Hello Finn!

surely they was brave to fly over desert 1000km in that thing! ;D

Te model also works of shark patrol on beaches! cool job. 8)

This specific plane was modified as ambulance; and ended up lost after landing a marsh that appeared as field of grass. o_O
The crew survived and was 33 days lost and were helped by the local tribe. :o

I found it!

It’s a Tugan Gannet, also known as a Wackett Gannet.
