Doesn't look quite right - the cockpit edge by the pilots shoulder comes up higher on the Su-25 I think

Pucara was 2 seat I think and had a rising cockpit line with hooped stringers to hold the glazing........

It looks VERY industrial - and Russian to m

Perhaps an Su-17?

Well, there is a connection with the Su-25 - but not the Su-17.
Yes, Russian...

I love the description of it: most gorgeously ugly combat jet ever. Which it truly is

I'm sure the top brass weren't fooled - it was obviously a 1938 design dragged out and re engined - they'd probably been on a bender and forgot the submission date....................

I'm having trouble uploading an image - sticking at 90% loaded so OH

Nice Challenge!
I looked at the Il-40 but not any further.
I started searching “cockpit fuselage section”
Then this came up closest to a cockpit with horizontal bar.
Does anyone know what this one is?

Ilyushin went to great pains at the time to dispel any thought it was related to the Il-40...




We have Open House.

Apologies not waiting for the confirmation from Noyade.
(I thought Beamr did the challenge)
but my question about the other cockpit still stands.

The Vampire was mostly wood but I think the Venom was metal.
I'll go for a Sea Venom.

Dixi has it with a Sea Venom.
at first I thought a Vampire two seater to be most likely.
But those have a double bubble.
This morning I thought that Sycamore was correct with the Venom.
But when searching for Sea Venom cockpits I just found this photo on Jetphotos:
Notes:

You can see the whole plane under restoration On the left side the wooden cockpit section, the radar cone, the two tails, the wings and on the very right side the Ghost engine
