That, dear friends, is the result of an affair between a GeeBee racer, and a D3Y Val.

This was a civilian version purchased by a Japanese newspaper and used for a 1937 world record flight, Tokyo-London flight to mark the coronation of George VI.

Lockheed 8 Sirius

Most probably it was the ex-Mexican Lockheed Sirius, X-BADA "Anahuac" which was used by the Spanish Republican AF and shot down during Spanish Civil War in 1937.
The photo may show its form after being modified to a fighter-bomber.

The front vertical of wheel covers fairs into the leading edge and is more angled forward than the 8 Sirius.
