DAK markings on Luftwaffe aircraft panel....

Hello to all.

Not sure if this is the correct area of the forum to post this so please move the thread to the appropriate
section if needed.

I normally frequent the WAF although I have recently acquired a piece at auction which I am wanting to find out the origins of.

https://s17.postimg.org/v56if24hr/H2717-_L136771357.jpg


It was described as a panel from a Luftwaffe aircraft, possible and open cockpit observer / training aircraft.

The insignia to me looks more DAK than anything else as it resembles a wide palm tree on top of a swastika.

Another opinion I had was it could be from a ground vehicle, although give the shape I would think it is more likely from an aircraft.

The more eyes that look at this piece then I will hopefully closer to knowing its origin.

Many thanks!

Welcome Christian
The panel certainly looks to be off an plane, I'm by far no expert in these matters
My assumption is the pot riveting, not something you would see on a vehicle
