I concur.

The line drawing and your silhouette seem to be the same aircraft.

I dissagree, I think it's a Dornier Do 18. If you look at Dornier Do 15, its wings are more squared than the picture that was posted above.

Hi
This K6+ZH Do 18 is a plane of the 2.(f)/Kü.Fl.Gr 306 (nov 1938 to nov 1939) or a plane of the 2.(f)/Kü.Fl.Gr 406 (nov 1939 to july 1943)

Do-18. Watch the wide Fowler's downsided winglets. On Do-15 Fowler's winglets were shorter and upperside mounted.
