I cannot resist temptation to develop this 2D into 3D

Certainly not a Tamigawa but it is not so bad. Engraved details (surprising)

A pair of Airfix MiG-21PF at 1/144 to build turboprops from fuselages.

To make tail turbojets, instead of Tamiya's Farmer, as planned, I will use an odd model marked as MiG-23 !? at 1/144. In fact it seems to represent one of those MiG big interceptors designed between MiG-21 and MiG-23

That's looking VERY creative.  :thumbsup:
Kit's Rule 1 ) Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage
Kit's Rule 2) The backstory can always be changed to suit the model

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)



Cool. I like the twin nacelle in the tail a lot.  :thumbsup:

Just hope that the props get enough ground clearance, a serious conversion problem when you add props to jets.



- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

I have to say, I have never thought of using a MIG-23 in that way before!
What a cool idea. It's like a Westernized, fuzzy bunny child of a TU-22 and a TU-95 and I love it!!



I do like where that is going, and as Dizzy says, the twin-engined tail nacelle is intriguing :thumbsup:
Oh to be whiffing again :-(


Looking good,  this gives me an idea of kitbashing the 1/72 Trumpeter Tupolev Tu-95MS Bear-H with the Revell Boeing
E-3A/C . Not too sure if I can get away with a straight engines swap,  keeping the inner engines on the Bear and adding the turbofans under each wing  :banghead:

Woah ! That is wild ! Gotta love the engine layout, especially the twin in the tail !
CANADA KICKS arse !!!!

Long Live the Commonwealth !!!
Vive les Canadiens !
Where's my beer ?

Do the passengers get handed special hearing protection? What??

Great concept.
