This is interesting, Nigel.  At 1/72 scale, how big is this thing?  I admit I had to look up 'Ekranoplan', now I know all about the Caspian Sea Monster.  Cheers.

Decided to get the wheels on as I was sick of it flopping around like a mackerel...

 

Some decals that I might use...

 

Engine test!

Got the rudder on.

 

Followed by the tails.

 

As she is going to be a post war transport,the tail gun has been sealed off.

 

Changed the winglets - for a reason...

 

..

 

The reason,additional lift..

You know, even with all you've done to this kit, it still looks better than any of the actual Italian bombers in WW 2. LOL And I think you are a brave man to go at a kit in that manner. But then, I too have had visions in my head of a project that I MUST make a reality. Best of luck. Looking forward to this one!

Someone once told me that there were engines other than the Chrysler Hemi-but thats just crazy talk!
