Good forward photo of pilots cockpit note the crash pylon behind pilots seat, and his shoulder harness. Aircraft has heavy canopy frame work. Instrument panel looks like the SN-2 radar set. Looks like a Messerschmitt Bf 110G-4

More on those instruments boxes. Looks like they could be the radio and D/F equipment. My mistake, the Lichtenstein SN2 radar would be located above this equipment. Do the best I can, with what information I have. Best wishes, Bill If anyone has more information fill me in

NIGHT FIGHTER: Aircraft could be a late model Messerschmitt Bf 110G check out the heavy canopy framework and roll over (crash pylon) bar w/seat harness behind the pilots head. Windshield was fitted w/armor depending on model from 57mm to 90mm thick. Instruments look like radio and D/F equipment. Not installed above these instruments would be the Lichtenstein airborne radar equipment, but I'm just guessing here. Looks like our pilot has been issued the leather LKp W 101 flying helmet
