Love the Aeroflot Tupolevs ... and that T-tailled Caravelle is rather tasty too!  :)

Yeah that Aeroflot Tupolev looks very doable  - nice one Ysi!

  Your B-24 airliner has a real grain of truth in it. Early B-24's were used as
unarmed transports called C-87's, and the British converted some of their
Avro Lancaster bombers into Lancastrian airliners in 1946-47.

So, would the Liberator become the Liberty? ;)

I love this B-24 derivative killing nobody anymore (unless there is a crash...).

Awesome drawings. I read a Sci-Fi/fiction book decades years ago which had a "Boeing 797" which had 5 engines.  I think it was "Invader".

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Nope, Down to a Sunless Sea by David Graham.  Though his 797 had a full-length upper deck, back to the tail, added, too.  I could see how that could be easily modeled.
