Yak-44 Carrier AWACS

Got my eye on making a model of this aborted AWACS intended as the Russian equivalent of the E-2 Hawkeye.

Before I start looking into designing a model, does anyone know if a paper model exists already?

Yakovlev Yak-44 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Also included a pic of AWACS around the world. Anyone have a similar overall graphic of types that never entered service?

There is actually a model of it available here; 2-Avions militaires des années 90 : Maquettes en papier - Paper models - ???????
The first time I saw this one, I thought it was just a fantasy repaint of a Hawkeye. Now, I know better!

Many thanks Scott K. That's a great website with many models to try including the Yak-44.
My only comment about his models is that he hand draws them. If he used a computer graphic package they would be first class (noses of planes need a bit of attention too but he's done a great job with the site)

Now ive got that model, I will have to look for the other AWACS.
