Looks like it's a derivative of a me262 but I can't find it yet. Got to be out there somewhere. Maybe the Soviet version?

I'm actually enjoying myself here......everyone's finally gone to sleep after the last 48hrs crazyness, planted myself in the comfy nook of my chair with some decent whiskey & cigar, and I'm sorting through obscure bits of aviation detritus, weeeeee

I'm halfway through an interesting bit on Franco-US cooperation during Dien Bien Phu (btw 7 US pilots were honored in 2005 with the Chevalier de la Légion d'Honneur @ the French embassy in Washington from their actions in '54)

For me this is the fun part of these searches, finding obscure bits on the Interweb and killing a few quiet hours.

I suspect Klay's one is Argentinian or another South American one. Can't find it though.

Sud-Ouest SO 4050 Vautour. I don't know what the connection is. You're on the right track with the other one above. I think it was one of just one or two prototypes.
