2 bladed props and engine nacelles kind of look like a Dehavilland Drover but the pilot window is wrong?

...in fact the way the windows look it looks like a drawing on the front of a Tom Swift novel or something

Looking at the pilot's head in helmet below.. I can see why some have been retro-fitted with a slight bubble canopy for taller pilots.

Not de Havilland Drover. Here are more sketchy lookin' windows from what I believe is the same aircraft. (Only one of these produced, I think):

It's pretty obscure. But I've found all sorts of cool trimotors I've never seen before.
