The Antonov An-50 was a planned Soviet airliner with four turbojets. It was planned by Antonov in the first part of the 1970s. The aircraft was never built.

Antonov made the plans based on the An-24R, but it would have had four turbojets with 14.7 kN thrust each, instead of the two turbojets used earlier. The turbojets were planned to be built together with the undercarriage, under the inner wings. There were no other major changes planned. The plans were complete in 1972, but nothing had been built. There was no prototype.

It was planned to weigh 24600 kg gross, and it would have had a 490 km/h speed at 9400 m altitude.





Take the Amodel An-24 and add B-52 nacelles with a shortened pylon, widen it, use existing nacelles or drop tanks with plastic card to house the landing gear. .

Yup! I've saved them as references for the 1/72 F-15 & F-16 I have to build as RAAF aircraft, may buy a F-14 for the same purpose (triple-layered defences).

I just send the following via FB messages:

Dear Mr van Stigt, my name is Vuk Petrović and I'm from Serbia. I consider myself aviation enthusiast and I'm member of Australian forum Beyond the sprues http://beyondthesprues.com/Forum/index.php The forum itself is mostly turned to What if in aviation and I presented some of Your work here, with link to Your profile, of course. We would like, if it doesn't bother You, to become a member of our forum. Sincerely, Vuk Petrović

I just can't believe it:

Ladies and gents, sometimes I can be so incredibly sloppy. I just went over a few thousand (!!!) unread messages left for me at Messenger. First time I viewed Messenger itself at all. All kinds of reactions. Most of them were inquiries about either getting in touch or purchasing images. Some others were reactions on blogs I wrote. A few odd ones downright negative if not threats. In all, very, very educational, endearing and entertaining. Thank you! So, apparently I have to apologize for not replying many of them in the course of, say, about 4 years...

Hey Old Wombat:

I'm currently doing a WHIFF series in 1/72 -

A different ADF to what we got.

RAAF F15C's (2 SQNs),  F16C and CJ (3 SQN's total), F15E for strike (2 SQN's), plus some F111 for Recce and EF111 for Support, Hawk for Training and LIFT and A37 for FAC/Cairs.

Also a different RAN with a CAW on a NIMITZ Class Carrier - the CAW is F14, A7, A6, EA6B plus AV8B and Sea Harrier FRS1 for the Carrier or ADELAIDE class.

The Army has AH1 Cobra's for ARH, Apache's for firepower support, OV1D Elint, OV10 FAC, and Black Hawk, NH90 and CHinook for lift.


About half way thru - will post pics when I can find a site to host (I've dumped Photobucket!!)  :o

Just finished, the Fairey Dragon F3, based on the Delta 3 and made from the crappy Kangman 'Mig31', with scratch built wings and tail, and modified intakes and AAMs. Markings are of RAF 603 SQ.

Adding suitable boom-equipped tankers or are the F-16 and F-15 variants equipped to do probe and drogue refueling?  (I've got some ideas for a retractable probe for the F-15).
