Originally two Airfix BAe Nimrod kids and the wings from a Avro Vulcan B.2.
Looks like the wingtips have been clipped.

This build is no longer in this format. The Airfix HS/BAe Nimrod fuselage has been replaced by the Trumpeter Tu-95 Bear H.

The modified Airfix BAe Nimrod weapons bay bomb rack filled the gap of the hole when the camera pod was removed.
I knew that the wingtip fuel tanks from the Frog Avro Shackleton MR.3 would come in handy one day.

okay, go on, this is in a good way to completion ;)

I can't help it, but to me this has a very Soviet look to it? Probably because the tail reminds me of the KM ekranoplan (the famous Caspian Sea Monster)?

I could pay tribute to the Welsh Harp Sea Monster ekranoplan one of my earlier started but never completed builds.

A design change a tribute build to an unfinished project The Welsh Harp Sea Monster.
I have earmarked one of my started builds to provide some parts and extra engines.
