This is easy and it isn't a fighter, but what ever happened to these. They sure looked like fun.

Black Widow night fighter. Northrop I think.
The Saunders Rowe seaplane fighter I was thinking of posting when I earn a chance.

That 3 engined machine with big wheel spats has given me a lot of trouble. Italian my first thoughts, then French but so far drawing a blank. Spanish? German? Give us a clue.

There are a few unidentified ones outstanding.

This is a real plane. I bet a65l will be able to figure it out:

Not too many of them were completed and a large % of the finished ones crashed, apparantly it required a fair amount of skill to fly . There is a BD5 jet still flying in air shows in the US somewhere, if your really interested the guys site is on the web.
