Some time ago Evan had put me on to an outfit called HeavyKits, the owner was putting his moulds for the 1/72 Hughes Hercules he had up for sale (he sold about 25 of them). He was associated with Aircraft in Miniature so had a franchise so to speak for selling AiM stuff in the USA.  I nearly bought the moulds from him but someone advised me not to as they were all 'male' moulds and the asking price was too much (plus the fact A Model had announced they were doing one).  But while chatting with the owner about buying the moulds, he told me he had some moulds done for an An-124 and the An-225 in 1/72 to go too. But only the fuselage moulds were complete ------

Fotios Rouch has uploaded an in-box kit review of the Modelsvit 1:72nd scale multi-media model of the An-124 Ruslan (Condor) kit number 7201 (http://www.cybermodeler.com/hobby/kits/ms/kit_ms_7201.shtml).

Certainly not a model for the faint of heart or for anyone on a budget.  This thing is huge and and quite expensive.

And, also in 1/72, two kits just begging to be whiffed into operational military aircraft, two incarnations of the MiG "Analog" development aircraft:

A look in the box at the Modelsvit 1:72nd scale Bartini BBA-14 (kit number 72014) courtesy of Bernhard Pethe and Modellversium (http://www.modellversium.de/kit/artikel.php?id=10144).

(Image source: Berhard Pethe/Modellversium (http://www.modellversium.de/kit/artikel.php?id=10144))



*As a side note to this rather interesting model of an even more interesting subject I can tell you from first hand experience that it is a very strange looking beast.  This craft as well as others of its type were located at a flight test center in Russia after the test program and left out in the open.  The state no longer had a need for the craft or design and moved on so these things and there were several other variations on the Bartini design parked in the same location.  This became an "Easter Egg" of sorts for the imagery analysts that attended the USAF training program for satellite imaging systems (yes, I attended and graduated).  As most imagery analysts were guilty of the wandering eye while parked on a microscope looking at the imagery it was quite a treat to find these things parked out in the open and neglected.  I can never forget the shape of the things so when Modeslvit decided to produce a 1:72nd scale  model of this unique craft it is very much appreciated to be able actually see it without the aid of having to travel to that location (passport required), or the security clearance and a microscope of my prior trade in life when I was in uniform looking for interesting things in denied areas.

I-7U SUPERSONIC INTERCEPTOR PROTOTYPE EXPECTED SEPTEMBER!!!

Brief history: In the beginning of 1956, the “OKB-155"( Mikoyan-and-Gurevich ) Design Bureau began developing new supersonic interceptor under designation I-7U.

I-7U had all-metal construction with mid-mounted 55° swept wing , fuselage with circular cross-section, single-seat pressurized cockpit, adjustable cone inlet at the front the fuselage accommodating radar antenna, adjustable horizontal stabilizer and 2 additional airbrakes under the fuselage, just in front of the wing roots.The armament consisted of two NR-30 cannons, located in the wing roots. Powered by Lyulka AL-7F engine with nominal thrust of 6300 kg. and 10,000 kg with afterburning, the aircraft was supposed to reach 2M airspeed.

The I-7U’s maiden flight took place on April 22, 1957, few months later - the sole prototype suffered damage as a result of the starboard undercarriage leg failing when the aircraft landed following its 13th flight. After repair, the test program was resumed, but involved only six more flights till the February1958, when the project was terminated by the Chief Designer due to the unsatisfying flying performance. However, I-7U became one of the first planes of the new “Heavy MiG’s" family.

My word of advice?  Stick with the Anigrand version.  The Modelsvit model's I have made have tended to be over-complicated and they don't use locating pins.  Their instructions are also occasionally unclear.   Anigrand are simpler and much easier to build.

How about almost-prototypes, like the other finalists in the F-15 competition (though I would not mind seeing the Grumman entry in that one, too) or the AMD Super-Mirage ACF that was derived from the Mirage G.8?

Already have several of their kits, including multiple Mirage IIIV variants.  Might as well continue the trend.

Since they already have the Mirage IIIV, wonder if we will get to see a Mirage IIIT?

I am waiting on their promised Mirage IIIE.   Indeed, I am waiting on a cheap Mirage IIIE from someone other than the traditional kit makers.   One that is accurate and can be easily converted to an IIIO.

Does anybody expect 1/72 Antonov An-225 from us? Should we do it? What price you could afford?

Modelsvit has decided to go ahead with plans to produce a 1/72 scale Antonov An-225 For release,next year.  I suppose I could compromise my standards and get one to go alongside my Hughes Hercules.

Hello Friends,

We have started development of 1/48 P-51H Mustang, which release is scheduled for 2019. Initial 3D designing CAD renders are shown below.

and: Modelsvit:: F-82G Twin Mustang in our plans too.

That should make 'most all production Mustangs and Twin-Mustangs available in 1/48 when they release these kits.  I'm certain some parties will be ecstatic.

Well I do really have some 1/48 scale planes, all of my very favorite aircraft --- I think it might be about 12 to 15 but I can't remember exactly. I found one in my stash which I'm having problems figuring out why I bought it --- an Airfix EE Lightning

@Robert/KitNut617 - discoveries such as you describe happen quite often in my stash :)

Usually the discovery is of a 1/72 scale kit, but as I don't have very many 1/48, the Lightning is baffling me --- I may just move it on at sometime (along with a bunch of 1/144 scale kits, or the occasional 1/200 one)

Envision 1/48 XP-55 as 1/72 jet.
With two or three engines in the rear.  Given the power of early engines, you might want three, maybe even four.

Hmm, use four and scalorama it to 1/72 as a competitor to the B-45 and XB-46?

Well, that pretty much finishes out their full run of "big, single-engine MiGs and derivatives".  Wonder if they, also, will do a Ye-231 to finish the set?

Isn't the Ye231 just a fixed wing MiG23?

No, it's not.  Different intakes and the presence of lift engines makes a big difference.

Mind you, combining one of these with the intakes from a standard MiG-23 (or vice-versa) could trick some people. >:D
Title: Re: MODELSVIT
Post by: elmayerle on June 01, 2019, 12:03:11 PM
Mind you, I'm very tempted to do one with lift engines removed and canards on the intakes as a developed, less-complex, approach to the requirements.  Canards would, of course, be standard MiG design in planform.

From another site:

Dear All,

Herein would like to inform you that the release of An-225 "Mriya" (#7206, #7207) to be postponed for the end of Q1, 2020.
The kit is already in production, however - manufacturing process of fiberglass parts ( wing, fuselage) takes more time and effort, as far as it is handmade.
Official retail price shall be announced in the end of Jan/early Feb 2020.

Thank you for your attention!
