Description

 


Here is a Welsh Models 1/144 scale Tupolev Tu-114 vac kit merged with a Revell Tu-95 Bear.

Because the airliner was a development of the bomber, I was able to use the injection molded kit's wings (with modifications), main gear struts, and propellers in place of the harder-to-work-with vacuum formed components.

I also stretch-formed a nose cone from some Squadron Thermoform plastic, and fashioned a new nose gear strut from brass rod.

The Welsh kit decals were used, but their blue appears to be a little too dark for Aeroflot colors.
