Pop the canopy/cockpit out of it, smooth it over and turn it into some kind of early nuclear cruise missile.

This was just posted on Facebook Red Star Scale Models:

And finally for the evening, we did get some information about the next items coming from Bobcat. Next will be the Yak-28PP - the electronic warfare variant - as depicted here. This is slated for April release. Also the Tupolev SB that many have asked about is still on the way and slated for the April/May time frame. So lots to look forward to!

Through a very highly classified and perfectly executed operation, we have been able to get a picture of Greg's first shipment of Yak-28Ps kits from Bobcat.



PS: Greg, there is a double-agent in your house.

Hyperscale Bobcat Models 1/48 Yak-28P Firebar Interceptor Kit review by Jennings Heilig

Conclusion
 
To say I’m elated to see this kit - and to see it so very well done by Bobcat - would be understatement in the extreme.  I never dreamed I would see the day when I would hold an accurate, very well done, and well detailed model kit of the Yak-28P in my hand.  Whoever did the research for this kit did a great job, and the execution lives up to it.  The next kit due from Bobcat is the Tupolev SB, to be followed by the Il-28 Beagle down the road.  I’m looking forward to all of them!

HYperscale review of Bobcat Model Kits' 1/48 scale Ilyushin Il-28T Beagle, including 21 images of the kit's plastic parts, decals, marking schemes and box top.

Conclusion
 
This is a big, well-detailed and impressive kit of the Il-28T. It also represents tremendous value at just USD $42.99.
