Flankerman Posted March 8, 2016 Share Posted March 8, 2016 I'm calling it finished.... it's an Academy B-29 painted as a Tu-4 Bull with a Modelsvit Tu-91 Boot attached as an engine testbed - it really did exist - as shown in this photo....A lot of hacking, filling and sanding later......Because I used Milliput to form the rear end of the cut-down Tu-91 fuselage, it is very tail heavy - so I had to fit a support prop under the Tu-4 tail.I reckon if they removed the turboprop engine and put a few seats in the Tu-91, they could have made a neat passenger version of the Tu-4 My attempt at repicating the photos of the real thing......Comments welcome - more photos of the build are hereI'm going for a lie down in a dark room now.....Ken 46 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
