I am not the best paint or photoshop guy by any stretch.  :-[ But you have to start somewhere and its nice to have an idea of how things look before the kit chopping happens. Please note not everything will be to scale.



I love the BMP hull and its got a great size to it. my favorite Russian SAM is the SA-8 Gecko. This is a Gecko turret on a BMP hull educated guess on the scaling

I had this idea for Japan originally, (might still do it in kit form, with bigger radial engines) But I wanted to take a look at it here first  O0:



B-29 green nose by Mark Styling. (put it on there for contrast) for the record, a B-29 and Tu-95 do have the same fuselage size as far as my 1/72 scale kits can show  :)

Putting a B-29 nose on a Bear is truly inspired comrade Tomcat!

Such incredible ingenuity is a credit to the great Lenin and a mark of the Modern Soviet Man!

1,000 orders of the Red Banner and a Lada as a reward for your fine example!

The Bull nose works nicely on the Bear. Now make a Bear-nosed Bull!  ;)

If memory serves me right, the Badger's nose should also work. A Badger with a Bull nose should look almost Luft '46-ish.
Cheers,
Moritz
