es, 5E. We will add it in our title. But the scheme is a bit different (bigger letters in the code)

I know that photo

http://www.sas1946.com/images/imageshit/img850/4884/spainn5b.jpg

Color profiles shows whole wheel fairings in green but for me the rear part of fairing is in light color of underside. Please look at this, am I wrong? 

And today I found that one

http://www.aviationcorner.net/public/photos/1/6/avc_00435116.jpg

which is describes as for "Gamma 2d" but "BN-001",  done in Murcia in 1938. This is a mistake, the "2d" was I think  "TG-02" and " 5e" was BN-001 ".  I have doubts that it is "2d"  due to something what looks for me (behind the bombs) like a the end of ventral gunner gondola so for me it shows "5e", the"BN-001". Some interesting details are seen here... Like that of bombs, exhaust pipe and engine...

Very cool find, that photo with bombs. I think both photo show the same plane, at the same time. Light is similar and the bombs too.

 

Is the second Gamma in Spain confirmed?

"The second one" is the "Gamma 2d"? I was searching for the photo of this machine "TG-02" when I was contructing this kit. There are false sources like photos of destroyed machine described as this 2d and in fact it is a tail of destroyed Delta seen on photo. There is photo of Gamma 2d on a deck of a ship said to be done during transport to Spain. I am not sure If I have found more photos,,,

The photo where JWM posted the link to reveals nice details about the lower nose to wing transition
This kind of putting the fuselage above the center wing section is common to most Northrop designs from that period.

Do you see the the vertical demarcation line between colors on wheels spats at the end of tire? (or it is just me). It is on both photos of BN-001.

I do see that line and two colours clearly, but remember this is the outside of the u/c leg fairing.

The inside could be single-coloured... Nobody knows....
