Not a Russian collector, but a very nice model!

I am not an expert on Russian models and I have never been an expert on anything.

This model looks good, just for comparison, I attach a picture of what was available from Historic Aircraft Models some twenty years ago.

Model bought from CAM at LHR.

That’s a very nice mode, but I’m biased I love the Soviet types. Some 30 yrs ago l used to work with 1:1s operated by Balkan, Aeroflot, Tarom and occasionally LOT. I believe it to be the most successful Soviet era airliner ever built.

You will not regret that acquisition. I have the earlier "Olympic Carrier" version as well as the CSA release...both are excellent models

Some days, I regret I am only a KLM 1:200 collector. Some of these Russian models look stunning, including this TU-154!

I understand what you feel ...
Some twenty years ago, I bought everything from WM, HAM, Heathrow Models but very quickly I discovered that I had to limit myself and now, I focus on AF models.

That's enough to fill my display case ... and i am lacking of space.

.... and its a money thing too.
AF is an airline full of history. You can eat your heart out just collecting the planes they flew. There are some pretty unusual ones they collected over the years. I remember seeing a Breguet 763 Universal once. Awesome! ... and I just see there is an 747 AF Asie coming.

This is off topic but since you mention the Bréguet Deux Ponts ...

Ref the 154. Many years ago when I was employed by a ground handling company, we never used air bridges the 154s due to the excessive differences in the aircrafts attitude and levels during the turnaround. On arrival the aft cabin had to be deplaned first, followed by the cabin forward of the mid entrance door. Rear baggage hold offloaded first also. Even the mobile steps would sometimes require manual height adjustment as the turnaround progressed. Baggage and catering was on loaded with the forward hold being loaded first. Load sheet wise a full or two thirds full Tu154 was no problem. Less than that and you had to take extra care with planning your load and passenger distribution, and if it was an empty positioning flight it was almost impossible to keep the aircraft ‘in trim’ without on loading sacks of gravel into the front hold. Its been many years since my dispatching days, and maybe air bridge/jetty technology moved on and ‘ramping’ Tu154s got easier. We used air bridges without any problems on the Tu134 and Il62, the integral tail post on the 62 kept things nice and steady. Oh how I miss those days.

Neil.

I had the opportunity to visit one of the prototypes of this aircraft long time ago at Le Bourget, I think it was in 1970.

If I remember well the Flight Engineer station was on the left, behind the Captain, which was quite unusual compared to Western aircraft.

Hi Jean Pierre. On the Tu154 B and M versions that I used to ‘work’, the flight engineers station was behind the first officer’s seat. Behind the Captains seat was a ‘jump seat’ for an additional crew member. In the case of the Tarom 154s that I worked, that seat was often occupied by a state security person. Not the jolliest people in the world. Back in 84 or 85 I had a male Balkan cabin crew member jump into my traffic car and request political asylum. The airport Police took him away, the Captain was furious and immediately banned me from the aircraft, thus resulting in me handing over the turnaround to a colleague ..Happy days!

I had to get it. I already had two M versions, a post-Soviet Aeroflot and an Interflug, but this is the only B2 version Soviet Aeroflot I've seen. It looks great with the other two.

„Success“ is a difficult phrase in communist system, where almost everything is based on fixed production limits and dictated orders. LOT, Balkan Bulgarian, Malev, CSA, Tarom etc. never had a choice. And the high sales (i.e. production) numbers were generated through Aeroflot. The state decided how many would be produced by stipulating the company’s “demand”.

Back on topic: I like Herpa’s Tu-154 but I am not an expert at all. This is the rather rare livery with additional blue stripes - I have never seen it in person, just the regular one back in the days.

Rather see this one in the basic Aeroflot or Malev livery,. This Aeroflot livery is too obscure to me.. Nice model anyway.
