At long last!! But they need to sort out the tail livery:

JetPhotos.Net Photo » CU-T1282 Cubana de Aviación Ilyushin IL-62 by Laurent FAURE - Alpes^^Air^^Pic

triumph. The Il62 has a 'wheeled' retractable tail support, which is used to maintain stability whilst on the ground during loading/unloading. It was not always necessary to use it. I used to do load control on Cubana and Aeroflot ones, and in terms of sorting out a good and safe trim, these beauties could be real pigs, as their centre of gravity is located further back than most other jets of that size. In the main, the tail posts were used as soon as the aircraft was on stand, and would stay in place whilst the aircraft was re-fuelling, and being loaded. Once the fuelling and loading was almost over, and the last few passengers were boarding, the post would be retracted prior to pushback.

Of course, Herpa hardly ever have actual photos of releases with new moulds. It's always a photoshopped template or a photo of the real thing.

This is going to look great next to their Cubana An-24! The potential livery list is endless, I forsee this plane becoming a real money hole. Also, for anyone else enamoured with the Soviet Aeroflot livery: Antonov AN-24RV Aeroflot CCCP-47353 Metallmodell mit Fahrwerk und Ständer Neuheit/News 11/12-2012 - Flugzeugmodelle - Sammler Modelle

It was prone to shift centre of gravity (eg. one of fuel tank was also i the fin...), so to prevent from possible tail tipping while loading/unloading, additional gear was extended (in fact often the did it while taxiing).

How often did it tip back on it's tail due to someone's carelessness? I would like to see photos of the thing, nose up in the air.

I think DC-4s used a stick to prop up the tail during loading too.

This is a welcome release, but I see it says its going to be plastic , I recently bought a herpa 154 plastic and it was more like a toy then a model...So I will wait until we see it before I decide to buy or not !

I suppose if its half diecast half plastic I could stick it in beside my HAM IL-62 Aeroflot other then that I dont think I would buy another plastic herpa

Precisely the reason I think the IL76 will be absolute rubbish, it looks like a plastic wooster style model

Well why not just wait and see? I think the AN12 looks OK so why can't the 62 and 76 be?

Tony the 154 you're talking about is produced in eastern europe special for the Russian market. The 76/62 are going to be produced in China.

In my own experience with the Aeroflot and Cubana operated 62s, the post was rarely fully extended while taxying, but it would often be so, whilst the aircraft was being towed.

Among the aircraft I worked that always used tailposts were Asiana 747F, FedEx MD11s, Aeroflot DC10s and later, their MD11s.

Some years ago, the Caravelle was prone to it, especially the 10B version.

Other aircraft with tail posts - ATR 72 . Believe me it prevented the tail from hitting the ground many times at turnarounds I saw it on SAAB 340 and DHC 7 also..

Well, the AN-12 is diecast, I don't trust herpa and large scale plastic models, I must agree the 154 looked very very poor in plastic

Absolutely correct.
It is actually called a tail prop for the ATR.If I recall correctly there was a restriction on the 72-500's of 7 people standing in the rear cabin if the aircraft was empty.Sometimes if you were standing at the nose of the aircraft and if you saw the nose gear oleo/ shock extended more than usual you knew that there were too many people standing in the aft.

Coming back to the Il-62 another interesting detail about it is that it is one of the few aircraft that can use thrust reverse in flight.

The AN24 is diecast and the AN12 is plastic.

What do you think of the AN12? Do you have it?

Aside from that the AN12 is plastic i think it's OK. Not wonderfull but acceptable.

In fact clamshell doors of thrust reversers could be "opened" just before touchdown (well in LOT Polish Airlines it was forbidden, but, you know..), but the actual "thrust" to shorten the landing distance was applied on the ground. Here's picture of opened doors in flight:

BTW - what about DC-8 - I read it was also possible to use reversers in flight or I am wrong?

I have Aeroflot An-12. It is plastic, but believe me, it is worth buying. I pay attention to details and mould accuracy, and I have also WM Cubana An-12. Maybe there is not so many printing details as on Gemini aircraft, on the other hand - transparent nose looks very real. Definitely, go for Herpa Antonov. I was really amazed and don't believe what Herpa present on their site, pictures (drawings?) are really ugly...

I think only idle reverse before touchdown,and full reverse available after touchdown.Even the Tu-154 can use idle reverse before touchdown on engine 1 and 3

Yes the DC-8 could use thrust reverse in flight only on engines 2 & 3 .Not sure if it was so for all DC-8 series.
Other aircraft I can think of that had this feature were the Trident and Concorde.

I have the Aeroflot Herpa AN-12 too and it is a nice looking model.Only drawack is extremely light and feels a bit fragile when you hold it.
I have it on display with my other diecast props and you cant tell the difference until you pick it up.Overall a good model to have in your prop collection.

I really don’t understand the reluctance of the manufacturers to make a 1/200 Il62/62M, I really am sure that the sales are out there for them. The Historic diecast Il62s are products of their time, model manufacturing has come a long way since then. Hopefully some day one of the manufacturers will give us this much desired (and overdue) model.

Hopefully some day one of the manufacturers will give us this much desired (and overdue) model.

I'll second that Neil.
But as with the A310, I'm hopefull we will see the IL62 soon.

That’s a very nice and unusual model. I have an unbuilt 1/100 East German plastic kit, which despite having Interflug decals is moulded as the prototype with the forward fuselage ‘blisters’ nose pitot and the engine nascelles peculiar to the prototype, which was equipped with the underpowered Lyulka engines. The planned Kuznetsov power plants were not available in time for the Il62s maiden flight.
