Myasishchev M-50 Myasishchev M-50 (Bounder) Strategic Bomber
About this creation


from Wikipedia The Myasishchev M-50 (NATO reporting name Bounder) was a Soviet prototype four-jet engine supersonic strategic bomber, which never attained service. Only one prototype was built, which was believed to have first flown in 1957. The M-50 was constructed by the Myasishchev design bureau.

It was a fast jet bomber with four engines: two Dobrynin VD-7 and two VD-7F turbojets. Two engines were located under the wing and two on the tips of its shoulder-mounted, truncated delta wings.

The second M-50 was designated M-52 and carried Zubets 16-17 turbojets, around which the aircraft had been designed.[1] The engine installation was modified, and a second tailplane added to the top of the fin.[1] M-50 participated in a Soviet Aviation Day flyby in 1961. M-52 was completed but was not flight tested.

Like most of the early 1960s supersonic strategic bomber projects, the M-50/52 program was terminated due to the development of the Intercontinental ballistic missiles and the priority assigned to the Soviet space program

Great work on this rarely portrayed bomber. Use of tiles on the upper surfaces, though, would really add to the sleekness of the design.

Beautiful work! You really nailed the proportions and details. I was fortunate enough to see the M-50 when I visited the Monino Museum a few years ago. It is a real beast! I'm glad to see it finally in Lego.

Wow! That`s an amazing aircraft model! I don`t think I have ever heard about the Bounder before. You did an excellent job on recreating this spectacular bomber in bricks!

An amazing model of this deadly proto-concorde. Speaking of which, one of those by you would be something special!

Great model, with superb shaping. I especially enjoyed landing gears and engines. Usually I do not like studded models, but in this case studs are great to express crudeness of the prototype.
