I Found out what it is wit a flikr pic with description of your Plane and it is a Modernized Hawker Hind Concept ,called Nimrod .....Yippy ...Call Me Sherlockine Holmes
The Hawker Nimrod was a British carrier-based fighter aircraft built between the First World War and the Second World War by Hawker Aircraft.
What would become the Nimrod was developed as a private venture as the Hawker Norn. The Air Ministry wrote Specification 16/30 for the production version which was given the name Nimrod.
The Nimrod arose out of the need for more modern aircraft within the Royal Navy. By 1932, such was the state of the Navy's Fleet Air Arm, that its principal fighter, the Fairey Flycatcher had become so obsolete in terms of its speed, that RAF officers often joked that a sprightly fly might actually give the plane a run for its money. As a result the Air Ministry put out a tender for a new naval fighter. Designed by Sydney Camm the Nimrod followed the standard design philosophy of the time in being a single-seater biplane with open cockpit, fixed undercarriage, and twin machine guns using interrupter gear to fire through the propeller. With a top speed of 193 mph (311 km/h), it was vastly better than the Flycatcher, though marginally slower than its land-based counterpart, the Hawker Fury. Both the Nimrod and the Fury had been replaced by more modern designs such as the Gloster Gladiator and Sea Gladiator by the start of World War II.
The first production Nimrod Is entered service in 1933 with 801 Naval Air Squadron, 802 Naval Air Squadron and 803 Naval Air Squadron of the Fleet Air Arm. The Nimrod II with arrestor gear, more powerful engines, and increased area tail surfaces followed in September 1934, One aircraft was supplied to Japan, one to Portugal, and two went to Denmark, where they were known as the Nimrodderne.
