Default Tu-144

I picked up this 1:200 Tu-144 after walking through the 1:1 Tu-144 at Auto & Technik Museum in Sinsheim Germany.

Might that be your new BMW in the foreground? I loved Sinsheim when I was working nearby in Heidelberg 1995-98. The planes are displayed in a novel manner as if they were 1/400. Enjoy Germany - the strongest economy in Europe. Bis Später. Doug

Yes, that's the new Bimmer under the Tupolev's. I'll be posting more pic's in another thread.

Walking inside that Tu-144 was a challenge. That angle makes it a hard up hill walk.

Interesting, I never knew the Tu-144 was that much larger than Concorde.

I'd like to check out that museum, one day. Thanks for posting.

It is slightly bigger, but the wide angle photo and perspective exaggerates it. The Tu-144 is 13 feet longer and 10 feet longer wingspan (about 4 meters longer, 3 meters wider)

We also visited the Technik in Speyer, along with the Dornier and Zeppelin museums in Fredrichshafen. I'll post the pictures later today.

Agreed about the photos. Wow!!

After seeing these, I need the TU-144 for my Concordes!

I was led to believe this TU-144 was a 'less-than-inspired' release from Herpa, but after seeing these shots, I'm convinced at least ONE needs to be in my collection. It looks absolutely stunning!

Thanx all for the super-detailed photos!

Hey all, so I wish to add the Aeroflot titles to the fuselage of my Tu-144D Sinsheim model. Don't know why it doesn't have 'em because she did when in service. Anyway, can someone tell me the exact size they should be? I'm gonna have some made from Draw Decals. Thanks!

Maybe someone with a later Herpa Tu-144 can measure yours?

Old thread but a great one still

As the Aeroflot logo goes, it was removed due to commercial reasons as I was told when I was there

You can see my photo's of the real Tu-144D CCCP-77112 here:
https://www.diecastaircraftforum.com...er-2017-a.html

And many many other great things too

Btw Herpa's Tu-144S CCCP-77110 does have the Aeroflot logo applied:

Thanks. Maybe I'll go that route. But I gotta find one that's a reasonable price. The reason I got the Sinsheim is because I like the looks of the cones at the rear of the engines. I know the other model has the afterburner-type engines, but I always like the wonky designs of Russian aircraft.

Hey! Those photos are awesome that you took at the museum. That's the actual Buran! And FYI: the monster truck in this photo was actually built by Bob Chandler (Creator of Bigfoot). It's basically the same truck but with different paint for a client at the time. History dude!

Yeah I remember that part of the Monster Truck as for the Buran that was one of the reasons I wanted to go to Speyer I knew it was there XD

The Lufthansa B747-230B was the other reason for Speyer. but for Sinsheim the Tu-144D CCCP-77112 and the Concorde F-BVFB "Foxtrot Bravo" and yeah well worth it man!
