I was tempted  to buy one of those kits a few years ago,  as they look very Russian in a mil mi hind kind of way.

It seems this is not a kit but a model that is already built, to be painted:

It is a kit Tophe.  But as it's a Games Workshop kit it's an expensive one.
If you scroll down you can see the parts on the sprues.

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

Maybe because the cockpit could be from a Macchi 202?

I like it, except for the landing gear still being in the taildragger location...

I like it too, just the relative position of the main landing gear looks goofy (to me), very far forward for a tricycle arrangement.  :o

Yup, but it also reminds me of a modified Caproni Campini in some ways. Perhaps an in-service version ?

But a lot of those early converted of prop aircraft, especially those that started out with tail-wheels, shared that look.  Only those purpose built as jets didn't look that way.

I try to learn from the mistakes of others who take my advice.
