That looks good, and it's the 'production' version with the canards too, unlike the VEB 1/100 scale prototype. Lots of scope there to cross-kit with a Concorde as well.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

What was the name of the Tupolev supersonic bomber?  Looks a bit like a Valkyrie crossed with Concorde?

Sukhoi T-4 would be the Valkyrie look alike.

That's the one.  An airliner version of that would be much more fun.

Sounds like Sukhoi's T-4 Lee, if it's the design that was built and flown. Pretty sure General Melchett made one.
Tupolev did design a four engined canard/delta bomber in the late 50's early 60's called the Tu125 but it wasn't built IIRC.

Shame it costs thirty quid over here and about a tenner (actually about 11.30) in Russia! Prob get one but I'd get quite a few if we got it for the Russian price.

Hannants have dropped the price of the Tu144 to 22.99, still prefer it at 11.30 though!

That's the earlier, non-canard, version, but it's not the prototype. That had all four of its engines in one big box housing under the centre of the fuselage.

Even MORE cross-kitting possibilities!

They're listing it as the Tu-144D, which was the later version with better engines.
