A 1/19 scale wooden model T-34C “Mentor” trainer airplane (US Navy, #0493). Originally built by Beechcraft and based on the Model 35 “Bonanza,” the military trainer model was redesigned with a conventional tail instead of the “V” tail of the Bonanza. It also has a fore/aft cockpit seating instead of side-by-side. This is the “Turbo-Mentor” version which came with a more powerful turboprop engine.
