This aircraft paper model is a Tupolev Tu-22 (NATO reporting name: Blinder), the first supersonic bomber to enter production in the Soviet Union, the papercraft is created by Bruno VanHecke. There are 1:100, 1:144 and 1:300 three scale versions.
Manufactured by Tupolev, the Tu-22 entered service with the Soviet military in the 1960s. The last examples were retired during the 1990s. Produced in comparatively small numbers, the aircraft was a disappointment, lacking the intercontinental range that had been expected.
Later in their service life, Tu-22s were used as launch platforms for the Soviet Kh-22 standoff missile, and as reconnaissance aircraft. Tu-22s were sold to other nations, including Libya and Iraq. The Tu-22 was one of the few Soviet bombers to see combat; Libyan Tu-22s were used against Tanzania and Chad, and Iraqi Tu-22s were used during the Iran-Iraq War.
