The fuselage reminds me of the Martin P6M, but that airplane had swept wings and a T-tail.  I'm stumped on this one (no surprise).

I would've also gone for the R3Y, except for that the R3Y had propellors, while this one seems to have jets...

Put you all out of your misery:

http://www.456fis.org/CONVAIR_R3Y_TRADEWINDS.htm

The link is no good.

You can't really judge props by that picture as it looks unfinished so it could easily be prop or jet.

Ok, so in my 25 years of aviation I have never seen anything like this. Never heard of it either.
Let's see if you plane spotting experts know it:

Piece of cake. That is a Caproni Ca.20. It is the worlds first fighter aircraft.

And the crowd goes wild...... I think ;D

 Found this at http://www.wwiaviation.com/Caproni.html

"The gun had a false sight at eye level so that the Ca 20's pilot could aim through the propeller arc at the enemy aircraft while the gun fired from above."

The Royal Aircraft Factory S.E 5a had the top mounted Lewis gun on a slide so it could be brought down in front of the pilot to be fired and re-loaded.  So this gun could be fired by Bowden cable since it looks like its in a fixed position.

Ok, here's one fresh from the sea! Sorry if the picture isn't too good but I'm not that skilled with camera settings. This should seriously give you experts a challenge >:D
I'll only stretch myself to saying it's considerably older than me (I'm 34 now).

No takers? Really? Ok, I'll narrow the info down. It's from WW2 and it was the first plane in production with at least one feature that was new at the time.
The engines have an aluminium block and heads with 4 valves per cylinder and fuel injection directly into the combustion chamber (normal gasoline fuel injection systems are in the manifold with only some the newest cars using a direct-injection system).
