Shouldn't that be "Thou art free to photoshop, but thou shalt not mess around too much (11th Commandment)" ;D ;D

It really looks like a sort of CGI....

Anyway the original K7 wasn't so big and so armed.
I agree with Scott, the only place good for such a monster is a Japanise Anime (e.g. Myazaki's Conan).

The non-military version that he's created looks as though it could almost work; there's a lot of good stuff elsewhere on the site as well.

Nice CGI, so move it to the Scale Modelling, CGI and Profiles forum. :)

Opinion author:
Given that this work is discussed at various forums on major aviation and military commitment, which is discussed, apparently without a clear understanding of the purpose of this work and the relationship of the author (ie me) to ensure that it is done, I want to warn in advance -- all that lies below no more than the usual techno-fantasy, techno-utopia, if you like - techno-nonsense. No major nominations for my part in something that can fly, there is no and can not be.
In short, people do not suffer, and not looking for here is the sound of grain - it is not. Or better just smile and remember the crazy age of 20 century))

P.S. Oh, and just in case, if somebody does not understand this is not photoshop, this 3-D, three-dimensional model of ... And that somewhere someone is considered for photoshop)))

If I understand this source, this fake project is not the K-7 of 1932-33 but a derivative: the KP-7 (in Cyrillic letters, so KR-7 in Latin letters)... Wonderful, a twin-boomer with 20 engines... The only date figure I found was 1932 (in some parralel universe).

The fake one has that "Bruce McCall" look to it. Quite honestly, so does the real one.

I was emailed some pictures of this huge bomber. it looks like a Kalinin K-7 on steroids. Does anyone know where this might have come from? Is this from a videogame?

thanks in advance for any info.

Any images or data about this KP-7?

You think, big guns on K-7 is hoax? :)
From "Tehnika - Molodezhi", 2018, №14:IMG_20190813_140319.jpg
"Kurchevskiy suggested fantastic projects of artillery multi-engine airplanes. This machines planned created based on biggest in USSR 7-engine K-7 by Kalinin. Variants (all - DRP, recoiless guns):
6x203 mm, 8x100 mm, 2x152 mm
12x203 mm, 8x100 mm, 2x152 mm
6x305 mm - only buck
8x203 mm, 8x100 mm, 2x152 mm"
And also from this number:
"K-7 with 6x305 mm DRP (not exactly graphics)":IMG_20190813_150237.jpg

Please, moderators, put this topic (or split it on different subjects) in appropriate forum's parts.
This mix of CG, projects and misleading namings, imho, became useful - even in this section...
