Fiat G55 is close but that seems too easy ?
Fiat G 55 is very close but it's not.
Thisi is a G.55
Not certain but it might be a Caproni-Vizzola F4?
Fiat G50V. The production version was to be the Fiat G52 but this was dropped in favor of the G55.
It's the DB 601 engined G.50V but, as you pointed out they decided to go directly to the DB 605 engined G.55 that had better potential.
Your turn chief
In order to get some quizzing going, I hope noone objects if I start again with this bird;
Hope they don´t have a struggle for what direction to fly into! LOL
For me its Netherlands or Russia.
I'll give you Russia
and a couple of photos from different angles
Vasily: Is MY turn to fly!
Ivan: Nyet! Is MY turn!
Vasily: Here's how to enter flat spin, comrade!
Ivan: Nyet! I'll SHOW YOU how to flat spin.
Alas, both Vasily and Ivan knew how to enter flat spin...but neither knew how to recover!
and so they went their separate ways
A little clue, it was only a prototype, the designer was called Viktor
and here's a photo of a model to make it clearer
sorry guys - I can't find the picture any more so I've forgotten what the question was? - anyone still got it - I've been looking but no luck yet. if not then anyone please start - I will post one as soon as I can get photos to post again (having trouble)....
Now I've got the photo posting problem beaten , I'll start again with a new one - what's this bird?
Looks one of the 6 Caudron C.714 that made it to Finland, the remaining 44 of a lot of 50 are reported as "lost en route", wonder what's behind that, accident, soviet naval action or "black ops" ?
Absolutely right - Caudron C.714. as far as the fate of the 44 goes - best info that I could find was that they never actually left France due to chaos caused by a certain invasion, but it's possible there could be a more interesting story
Manufacturer is easy, actual model a bit less

Could it be the Lockheed XC-35 Electra pressurisation research plane?
Yes it is the XC-35, surprlised it's called Electra too, usually the name is associated with the Mod 10 and L188.
