This model was shown in an Airpower TV show about Russian fighters, immediately proceeding a Valkyrie shot. Doesn't look Russian - perhaps F-108 related?

From what I can see it might be a double delta wing on a Mig25 fusilage.

Interesting, the leading edge angle change is quite inboard, almost suggestive of a LERX.

Looks like a single tailfin too.
 
I'd bet a MiG-31 type, FWIW. Since it's all speculation, really doesn't matter much, does it?
 
Does the missile on the extreme right ring a bell with someone? If it can be identified, perhaps that will provide a few clues as to the aircraft's nationality?
 
Paul, this is early MiG-25 study. Just was shown in a row of other old footage from MiG archives.
So, in a year or so we have solved a mystery.
 
Interesting that delta wing was as well considered as one of variants of E-155MP (MiG-31) design.

Source?

Tailless delta has some 701 resemblance as previously suggested.
