concept drawings of WWII Russian K-7 flying fortress

What the K-7 russian heavy bomber (circa 1933) might have looked like, if it had ever been fully developed. These are computer illustrations based on original plans and photos of prototype builds. Fascinating...

Of course, the warship turret on top of the plane in some of the illustrations are a bit extreme.

There were some wonderfully peculiar designs floating around

in the 1930's. I remember an article in one of my father's Model Airplane News on Howard Hughes numerous designs for military aircraft, and like the Russian design they had a faintly Art Deco flavour to them. Luftwaffe '46 designs are interesting in their own right but don't have that slightly "decorative" look, they're all business but as quirky as the earlier designs.
