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

Click on thumbnail image or html above to see the review at CyberModeler. 



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

A look in the box at the Modelsvit 1:72nd scale Bartini BBA-14 (kit number 72014) courtesy of Bernhard Pethe and Modellversium.

Click on image below or the html above to view article.


(Image source: Berhard Pethe/Modellversium)



*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.

At ARC and BM I've been following along a build of the Modelsvit Sukhoi T-10, aka Protoflanker. Now they're doing the Mirage 4000, anyone have any 1970s-now fighter prototypes they'd like to see?

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?
