Tu-16(Xian H-6) building advices

I am planning, together with a friend of mine to build a Tupolev Tu-16, about 1,6-1,7 meters in length. Are there any plans, 3D-view drawings available? Will 2 64mm EDFs be enough as power supply? What are your suggestions regarding the building techniques and materials to be used? Thank you,

This is how I would approach the project.

I would use the largest EDF which would fit. The attachment shows a section at the nacelle centre. A 90mm EDF would scale to 1.8 metre fuselage length. An underside intake would avoid any interference with the wing structure.

I would take an experimental approach. An overweight prototype incapable of flight is not a basis for development. So I would start with a superlight lash-up hand-launched prototype.

Good quality balsa wing........simplified depron box non-essential details........

Ailerons should not be necessary [I'm assuming no crazy flying].

When the first prototype is flying, you will then know how much weight can be added for a more-accurate version.
