Great! I think IIRC that Stargazer2006 did something like that (from a P-38 also) but as photograph in flight, not as 3 view!
I will draw a slanting view of it soon, thanks!

EDIT: I did it...

I was almost right: more than 0% right, yes? (is the engine coming from a Fw-190?) ;)

The Shackleton liner is pleasant at first sight. :)
An engineer would probably ask why selecting a mid-wing airplane to make an airliner... Is this: passengers above the wing and cargo under the wing? ???

That particular configuration gives an upobstructed passenger cabin, with the wing carry-though structure passing underneath the floor.  Unless you want real rough-field capability, that or a low-wing design are the best approaches for a passenger aircraft.  Would this be called a "Shackletonian" or just a "Shackleton Liner"?  I keep in mind that Convair's "Liberator Liner" shared only wing and tail surfaces with the Liberator, and then it was the B-24N with the single vertical tail.

Further: I should note that the main landing gear length requirements are going to be the same with a mid- or low-wing in that you've got to keep the props clear of the ground at the highest gross weights and sink rates.  A mid-wing like this actually lowers the passenger compartment relative to the ground for purposes of access and loading.  Besides, a mid-wing does not need as much of a fairing into the fuselage as a low-wing would.

Interesting.  In the real world there were radial engined developments of the Yak-7:




And later Yak-3:




The latter one being particularly attractive. 

Both used variants of the M-82/ASh-82 engine.

I wouldn't be surprised if at some point the Yak-9 was also trailed as such, though I can't find any reference...
