Yeah, now that I've bought two of the Anigrand kits of same.   Ah, well, still plenty of possibilities.

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.
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.

Via their Facebook page:

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

Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

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.

A 3D render to keep you warm or cool during the winter season while you are waiting for An-225 and thinking how you are going get the box(es) into the house and hide it from you know who.

Guess I "took one for the team" there.  I've got two of the Anigrand kits of this in the local stash.

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.
