Just from the illustration -- I can't read German -- it appears to be a model, not an actual aircraft or even a mockup.

The German given has nothing to do with the picture. The writer is describing how he got interested in the airfield at Rinsal Gaissau.

That model looks hypothetical considering how few 6-propeller airplanes were ever built. The 6 long engine nacelles remind us of the 1950s vintage turboprop engines installed on long-range, Tupolev 95, Bear bombers.
The model has ????? indistinct ?????? military markings/roundels (French ????).
Other wise, the general proportions remind us of some of Burt Rutan's round-the-world airplanes, though this model is not mentioned - in other sources - in relation to Burt Rutan or Scaled Composites.

The poster willijosef is also plumping for his e-paper 'Vor 90 Jahren baute Walter Kittelberger das Motorflugzeug Bregenz'. A log-in is needed to see the full-sized image but the link says something about 'Part 1, Kittelberger future project'.

Perhaps Walter Kittelberger became bored with light aircraft and actually did design this 'zukunftsprojekt'?
