No. And mine has an open cockpit. (Edit: That was to HP)

Built by a maker of railroad cars, a budding pioneer in aviation.

Edit: Ach THERE you are Graeme. Was just wondering what kept you…..

Over to you

Wrong tail for Mig - could be a Yak, but wrong background. Graeme, is the challenge the same as the one left in the background?

No mate, they're jet trainers in the background.

I'd say not an FJ-1 as its got swept wings. However, the dihedral on the tail counts it out as a swept-wing Fury, I think.
