That’s a very nice model. I guess I’m in the minority here in preferring the look of the Tu 144 over the Concorde.

I couldn't agree with you more! The Concorde looks like a lawn dart.

. Yeah but a cool looking lawn dart--especially in BA and AF liveries.

Curious if it's die cast.

That is a very sharp model indeed. I still think Concorde is more of a refined design, though. Just me.

Yes, Snowghost, it is diecast.

Very nice model, too bad the gears are not removable.

Thank you for posting this one. It's very impressive. Have to agree with Tom about gear up options would be nice, although the landing gear on the
Herpa TU-144 impressive. I have an older version ( the first one released)

Nice look on this Konkordsky model...lol
The Soviet's Konkordsky could never match the Concorde.

In reality the plane never had a good flying career.
Anyways, Herpa did a nice job on it and the model looks great.

verall this model isn't bad, but I did find it a shame after my friend Ben W. showed me the mistakes this one had over Herpa's older 1:400 scale model of it.

The red doors on the real 77101 were rounded and much smaller, as you can see here with 77102:


Herpa's 1:400 model is perfect compared to their 1:200 model of it.

The black paint on the nose also done wrong with the 1:200 model.
There are some other things as well, I'd have to ask my friend Ben W. he has the original manuals of the T-144 but all the needed to know documents etc.

Here a photo of CCCP-77102 sowing the much smaller & rounded doors:
