What Kind of Glider is This

I am in the process of building a cockpit for a flight simulator and I am wanting the seating position to represent the posture of a glider.

In my searching I came across this graphic and would like to know what type of glider it is:

It is from this russian site: Aircraft cockpit sizing
Unfortunatly I can't find any details about it.

Alternatively if anyone knows of where I can find better dimensions from which to model my design I'd also be grateful.

All the best,

How about a Jantar 2B?

I suspect it's not a Jantar (not that I would know). Just doing an image search and the Jantar 2B seems more pointy:

Also that 4-1 instrument layout on the right seems unusual.
Most of the Jantar 2B images have a 3-4-1 instrument layout:

Even the sthe one moddeled in condor

But thanks for your thought

With a 4-1 lay out, this could be from a Aviastroitel AC-5M, but gliders not been a subject on familiar with, this may be wrong !!
