Loving the MiG-21/29 mashup!  It does look as though it wants a bigger engine (or perhaps a couple of the current one?).
Fly?  Yes.  Land?  No.

Thanks John. For engines, I was going for a follow-on to the MiG-21-97 and LanceR but with an RD-33 option. So, the idea was a single RD-33 companion to the twin-engined MiG-29. Not so plausible but fun to do  :D

The fun is not only in making the drawing (you) but also in seeing it (us), thanks ;)

A quickie twin-engined racer based on Greg and Evan's suggestions about the Dora Wings TP-63E Kingcobra kit. More details here:

Revenge of the Model 3.  ;D

Cheers! And thanks for that Model 3 3-view Jon. (Amazing how many minor variations on the Model 3 theme there seems to have been -- especially in the size/arrangement of nose wheels.)

A quick take on Jon's suggestion for a US Navy A-20.
http://beyondthesprues.com/Forum/index.php?topic=307.msg84429#msg84429

No background story other than (top) a straightforward torpedo-carrying adaptation of the A-20G, and (bottom) a revised, lightened, 2-seat torpedo bomber for carrier use. The latter has folding wings, the cockpit moved to the nose, upper fuselage cut down (for 360° turret arc), nose wheel moved forward (to enlarge bomb bay for torpedo stowage), tailhook and other carrier fittings.

I'm not sure what to call these beasts. The USN did have Havocs in service as BD-1 and BD-2s. [1] I'm guessing that the A-20G would simply become a BD-3 but the carrier version would receive a distinct designation. TB2D-1 was the RW Skypirate (Oct 1943) TB3D-1 was assigned Aug 1943 - Feb 1944 for an A-26 Invader variant. So, the shipboard Havoc's designation would depend upon delivery date.
___________________________

[1] BD-1 was a single A-20A loaned to the US Navy for target tug  tests. Eight BD-2 (A-20Bs) were used as USN/USMC high-speed target tugs.

Any relation to the Soviet torpedo-carrying Havocs?

Of course you could always posit that construction of the heavily navalized version
woud be offloaded to someone else, so the designation would then be based on
whichever company got the contract.
