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.

Following up their early 1/72 Su-7, here are two more members of the Fitter family:





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

Wonder how long before we'll see a conversion kit to make an AN-225 from the AN-124?

496 plastic parts

HOW many?  :o

I know it's big, but how do they manage THAT many parts? Is every panel a separate moulding????

Sweet Tester!!  Do they have multiple pieces for each passenger seat?  That should be quite the model when finally built up.
