Looks like Aerosoft Tahiti? Nice shots.

 

I did some island hopping with the RV7 there last weekend.

 

I hope to do a long haul to there some day as well.

Yup, it's quite a novel layout compared to 152s and 172s etc, and the colouring is a real period piece, a bit like the dash on an old car LOL although if I really owned a 120, I think I'd be inclined to consider painting it a less vibrant colour, but then again, my old 1960's car has a painted bright green metal dashboard, and I actually like that.

 

If I lived in the US where they are more common, I'd consider buying a Cessna 120, since you can get them for about 18,000 Dollars, which is not bad, and they have a lot of character.
