Sorry BSD, not mine. Its something I found on the net. Would make a great desktop in a larger size.

Anyway, while we are waiting...

evansb posted a cockpit earlier from an Hiller-x18 and it was correctly guessed by Mreyn24050 (god knows how)







Anyway, what is that sticking out from under its tail?

It's the Westinghouse J-34 turbojet used for pitch control.

The cockpit windscreen and windows led me to think that the aircraft was a Fairchild Provider C-123 but the panel was quite different. I then recalled that in order to save money Hiller had adapted the fuselage of the Chase YC-122C (the forerunner of the C-123) as the X-18's fuselage. After further research I was able to confirm that evansb's challenge was in fact the Hiller X-18.

Thanks for the list cringe!

Well done It is indeed the Messerschmitt M-20.
I am sorry you must have posted the correct answer whist I was responding to your odd post, which you now seems to have edited.
You do have control.
Messerschmitt M.20

Odd indeed. I have notified my internet provider of a possible hijack. Regardless, here is the new mystery cockpit.
