Front of a german aircraft.

Article about: Great bit of detective work Holmes, really first-rate. When I saw the photograph I thought to myself 'why so many rivets?'. So what was attached behind the nose-cone to require so many?

    Is it ally or steel? The rivets looks odd for an aircraft, are they steel?

    i thought 110 or 262 when i first saw it,not sure any 262,s came down in england.
    One rectangular hole has holes for fixings such as acess panel other does not which is strange.

    I'm thinking PR. The ports look around the right size for a Camera maybe. One forward and one facing down.

    one panel opening has no rivet/screw holes so may have been a glazed panel in a rubber gasket,if such things were ever fitted,ive trawled photos of ww2 aircraft and even looked at hotspur glider mk1,but still havnt come to a decission.
