This is funny, one of my modelling buddies completed a full on, do everything, $$$$ Aftermarket resin bits,  to the old 1/48 monogrammo/Revell Mi-24 Hind last year. Came out gorgeous.
An there it is, brand new release on the table.
Glad it happens to other people as well ;)

People were wondering if there was a Buran to go on the back of the RoG Mriya!

Need a 1/144 full-up ISS with docking facilities for both Buran and a Shuttle at the same time; could make for quite the diorama.

Anyone know if their 1/72 kit of the Sea Vixen is an original kit or is a re-pop, cleaned up or otherwise, of the old Frog kit?

Ark is an inheritor of the old Frog spawn moulds.  Their kits are not cleaned up.  It is an old Frog mould.

I have their 1/144 Ruslan complete but for paint, I've been thinking I should take some photos with things to indicate how much bigger the Mriya will be. It's a big kit but still manageable without needing jigs and cranes  :P

Wonder if they are going to do the full launch stack-up, too?  That could look interesting next to a similar stack-up of the US Space Shuttle.

Golf class, I think? Three early SLBMs in the sail, and very very noisy. I'll have to keep an eye out for this one.
