It's a Fisher XP- something or other..... I saw something about it on the old Discovery Wings program years ago.... Was supposedly a fighter prototype that didn't use any materials that might become hard to get like aluminum... I think it was mostly wood.

OOOOOOOO nearly there  ::bow:: !!! Fully correct on why it was built "Was supposedly a fighter prototype that didn't use any materials that might become hard to get like aluminum... I think it was mostly wood."  But the manufacturer was a little bit more well known  ;) and the Fisher from memory had a contra prop....

found a photo of the Fisher xp-75

The first one is a Lockheed Neptune. Is the second the French built version of the ME 108?
