I found these two pictures in the Russian Novosti Kosmonavtiki forum. They were taken in the aeronautics museum of Speyer, in Germany. The poster wonders what it is.
my opinion is that it could be a model of the (West) German-US Advanced Cooperation Project Jupiter probe of the 60s. By about 1968 it was deemed beyond German technology of the time and was scaled down to the Helios solar probes.
Any idea anyone?

I have found more info on this as well as other fascinating projects of the 60s in this pdf:
