The Sovietised Spit looks really good! :) :)

What did you use for the nose & tail? ???

My knowledge of Soviet aircraft is rather limited.

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.
I have heard of the Yak-55 single-seat twin-plane (port 5b/1 without cockpit, starboard 5b/2), I could try to present it with bitmap change but it would me more simple for you AXOR if you have a vectorial source. Tell me if you won't make it. (This is important historically: this was the winner of the war)... ;)

Hi Cristophe. :)
For my linedrawings I use Paint.NET,so I don't have a vectorial drawing for Yak and Spit,but I could try a top view with Yak-55 as you described it.

I may try to do one in 3D some day.

In an alternative history Su-250 Bulkhead would be the equivalent of Su-25.

That MiG-17 SNF is very nice ... although your Yak-Spit was very tasty too  :)

Oh my yes and the camo is not only perfect for it, but pure eye-candy too!

Once again, comrade Axor, you have demonstrated that no scheming capitalist parasite can come close to the excellence of Soviet engineering! May you receive endless plaudits from the proletariat and an Order of Lenin along with a substantial increase in your vodka ration!

MiG 17 = excellent!   La 5b, this is proof that the best looking aircraft in the world can all be improved only by superb Soviet design and build, and this deserves
many awards and much vodka.   
It is of course known that Comrade Axorski only does such work for a love of the motherland, and therefore would not want any awards or vodka.
