you may have cottoned on that I like civilian aircraft most, especially the corporate jets - sleek, stunning beautiful - and wayyy out of my league.

Should have realised by your panache for aircraft from the eastern bloc...

Obviously too easy for you, this will be too, but it's one of my all time favourite 'planes - did thousands of miles on these in my youth, Ahh happy days.

I think that's Vickers answer to the Mosquito, only the vertical tail looks more DH than Vickers

a bit of research needed!

No idea here, despite having built model planes for much longer than I've been building boats! It looks a lot like a Westland Welkin to me, except that the wings are too short and the tailplane is in the wrong place.

Nose and tail are right, but engines and wings way not so - I'm sure I've seen these wings on a Vickers experimental twin.

Wonder what the engines are  - RR Exe?

on the ball to night martin. But to be correct you got a photo of a 14m1p. It started life as the vva 14 then was converted to a WIG craft and called the 14m1p as you can see were her extra front engines were.
