    Looks very much like the Ryan Navion!
    I have even seen a book about the Navion with a picture of a P 149!
    This airplane was designed in Italy, but most were built in Germany by the Focke Wulf factory.
    The type has been extensively used as a trainer by the German Air Force.
    Lovely airplane to fly, but underpowered and very noisy!

    Regards

    Ron
