Help to Id. plane

Hi all,

Can anybody identify this french bomber?
I thought first of a Potez 540, but the engines do not match. :?

Hello!
Well, there were 2 versions of Potez 54 family with Gnome-Rhone radial engines, but one of them - Potez 541 - consisted of only one plane, and second - Potez 543 - was built for Romania. :?
Photo of Potez 541:

Definitely a Glenn Martin 167. The roundel is French so it would be a 167F and not a Maryland which was the nicknamed given by the British but not used by French earlier. :wink:

That Martin Maryland ie. Glenn-Martin 167F A-3 was numbered with white 14 (unfinished) on fuselage and was quite a "tourist" attraction this is the 6th photo of the plane i saw. Interestingly at first was in relatively good state.
Sources: KHMMM Can't bloody remember but they were collected from the net trough the years
