And the silver scheme likely would have been its service paint - remember that the Tu-95's operated and if I recall still operate in NMF.  The only other paint option would be white like the Tu-16's I think.

That video is something else... and the engines, had to be turbojets for that scream... gods that's a pretty wicked plane, wonder if I can find one in 1/144 to add to my collection one of these days.

Say no more, ;D

This is the one I'm converting into an M-52 missile carrier,


http://www.anigrand.com/AA4002_M-50.htm

If you notice the bottom pic shows the finished model, and unusually for Anigrand they got it wrong!The outer wings have sweep and the cockpit and spine are too wide!!However, these are all correct for the M-52!!...Maybe they had the wrong plans when designing it!!...very strange, (at least it makes my job easier)...


Fun and games getting into the thing!!



Also ...yep the engines were turbojets, a mix of two types, the Dobrynin VD-7M and the VD-7B, only the inner engines had afterburners and the performance was quite poor, if only they had fitted the intended engines how different the story would have been. The production M-52 was to have four substantially more powerful Zubets 16-17 turbojets. Apparently the M-52 was built though never flown, but as these pictures show it is more likely a mockup, ( notice the support trestles, dodgy shiny tyres and third undercarriage leg in the centre), it was to be an integrated missile system using two AS-4 Kitchens, a rudimentary 'fly by wire' system plus an inertial navigation system and at least one other variant was to be built as an ECM platform, (again more likely an ECM jammer pretty much like the TU-22 KPD Blinders)...

Still, a nice little project that I'll crack on with in the near future...


Anyway this is the M-52,

 :cheers:

There were plans to stick it on a mobile launcher too!

I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

I am also a big fan of Russian bombers, and all the stuff from the 50's to the 70's.
Having a collection of models of these behemoths is one of my ambitions that is for sure :cheers:

Good grief Andy, do you own the southern half of Lincolnshire?  I look forward to seeing them all mind ;)

And here I am wondering what to do with my Mi26 if I ever build it!

The long lost Lincolnshire talent for folding time and space comes in handy here Neil....... :thumbsup:
Hopefully start the big Russians again once all the stuff for Telford is sown up,

Just to prove I'm not telling porkies here they are primed and ready for the paint shop, (minus the Bison which is too big to fit in and still on the production line)..







Cheers all, :cheers:

How is the AModel Fiddler to build?

Very impressive, I must say. Wish I had the space (and money, and time) for these big models.
Some of my models can be found on my Flickr album >>>HERE<<<

I do like the Tupolev fiddler also, it would fit in well with my cartel aircraft theme,but the Amodel thing and the price of them really puts me off.
I have built one Amodel kit and have another in the stash, and yes I get shivers just thinking about them :o
