Warm greetings comrades and thank you !
In this GB all my images embodies an alternative history,where the western design of our current history is developed in the east in alt history,of course,some aspects may be identical on both sides.I'm not good at stories and because of this my work seems incomplete or without a specific logic...sometimes.
Regardig the designation system I chose to use the other numers to distinguish my models from known models...in some cases,as Logand pointed out,they can represent the missing link between two known types.
This last profile happened accidentally,in my outline folder those two ( IL-10 and JU-87) were next to each other and then it came up,after ten minutes Il-9 was ready for painting.

Niiiice!  8)

Just a thought: a painted-on fake glass nose?  :P For old times' sake.

Maybe even in a sort-of "retro" livery. The one with the blue tail and black anti-glare panel.
EDIT: This scheme. Love the more vibrant blue. LINK!


A very good suggestion Moritz,thanks  :) :

The glazed nose is very pleasant, reminding Soviet bombers.
While... what is its use on an airliner? In the capitalist (evil) side, this would make first class expensive seats with wonderful view forward and below but this must be different on a Soviet airliner for proletarian equal people... maybe this is for the leader and best party commanders, all right. ;)

Read from somewhere that in true Cold War mindset, all Soviet airliners were mandated to be convertible to makeshift bombers as necessary so that they could still be used to bomb the imperalist lackeys after all the real bombers were nuked or shot down...

Because of great size of glorious Motherland, radio beacons weren't avaliable everywhere. So airliners transporting industrious workers to their well-deserved holidays had glazed noses, which allowed navigation via terrain features or calculating drift by using reference lines in the flat panels in the nose.

Comrade AXOR! We of The Committee of State Sanctioned Modelling, Alternative History and Tractor Carburettor Production are in awe of the genius and dedication of your design bureau.  This design is sure to fill our workers' hearts with pride and desire to travel across our great nation while also creating envy and jealousy in the poor proletariat held under the unfair yoke of the so-called capitalist "free" Western countries.

I see that your latest submission has drawn the curiosity of the Subcommittee for Decal Solution Quality Control and Tire Pressure Regulating of The Committee of State Sanctioned Modelling, Alternative History and Tractor Carburettor Production:



Вперед в будущее!

Yes Greg,in that picture is the pre-production model,only fifteen were built.
The main production version had another engine and a revised tail for better stability.
