HI Jon

sadly, that's is the only photo I have ever seen of a klimov engined P-40.   Otherwise there are just profiles .
Details here in this thread
http://sovietwarplanes.com/board/index.php?topic=900.0

There are plenty of A-20 Boston options available, early RAF camoflaged C models, G models as nightfighter, G torpedo bomber, and G models with gun nose converted into navigator and bomb/torpedo aimer [there is a Russian site on 51 MTAP with LOTS of photos]
also some pics here for inspiratiopn
the RAF camo ones are photos 4, 7 and 10.  Soviet turret fitted is photo 9
http://lend-lease.airforce.ru/photogallery/boston/index.htm

Tip, all the boxings of the Xutong Tu-2 kit[ie bomber version  which don't use them]  come with torpedoes, which are the type fitted to the Boston torpedo bombers;)

For Hurricanes, the IIB regunned by the VVS is an interesting subjetc, there are various threads here on this, icluding one with drawings showing the new guns.
here  - http://sovietwarplanes.com/board/index.php?topic=881.0

 start a thread or PM me if you want more info.

Haha, they also have this.  http://www.brengun.cz/e-shop/1-48-accessories-22/toilet-bomb-for-skyraider-848#!lightbox[product]/1/

I'm not familiar with the story, but I bet it's interesting.

While this experiment  Huh can be thought of as some sort of military humor others might attribute the episode to boredom and a fertile imagination..

Looks like a very popular modelling subject!

I like how one described it as "germ warfare".  LOL!

 Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy "war humor'' It looks a bit of the RAF war beer runs! only these were not bombs, but actually filed with beer for the troops.
