Love the AN22. I'd like to find a decent one like that to replace my 3D printed one

Is it me or does the nose of the model AN-22 not quite look right (too pointy)? I have compared pictures of the model with several of the real thing.
The other Russian models look great though.

I asked the same thing too, but was informed that this is an Antonov AN22A which does have a pointed nose versus the older original AN22s...

Hey Lads. Seriously considering buying the Airhub AN225 with the Buran Space Shuttle. Has there been any reviews of it yet?

Just a quick glance on the net, Airhub’s “Buran” markings appear to be off, but I’m not sure?

How does the Airhub AN225 compare to Herpa’s effort?

Cheers

just had message from Vitalli at AIRHUB. they will be adding a AN24 + 225 BURAN with landing gear! to their site.


and also developing a 1/200 IL 86 AEROFLOT. Any interest???


In addition, we have a question for you. Also, maybe you will ask other guys on forums.
So, we are planning to develop a new model IL-86 Aeroflot 1:200 with chassis.
Is it a good model for the market?
Thank you in advance.

I'd be interested in an Aeroflot IL-86 provided it is resin and not plastic, and that it has Soviet registration and flag as opposed to Russian. Then again make both, everyone's happy.

here's some pics of the goodies

Very nice and impressive. The painting on fuselage very nice. AN-225 is huge next to 777-9

very well protected foam box and outside packaging. no damage at all. AN-225 box has nice drawing on the outside. Other two boxes are plain white outside.

Propellers on AN-22 do spin. Wheels on these don't spin but fine with me

Suggested improvement for the AN-124 and AN-22: Drawing of the rear cargo door on the fuselage.

Had the opportunity to see the Mriya back in 2013 when it transported heavy electric transformer from Zagreb Croatia to Cebu Philippines. What a bird!! Still remember vividly that early morning hours heavy takeoff above my head the roaring D18T Lotarev’s by Ivchenko Progress and warm exhaust lingering around like a warm blanket. Hopefully the second one gets completed some day. To my knowledge it’s luckily stored under the roof for a last few years...

anyone knows of a 1/200 747 SCA and shuttle combination? maybe airhub or asm should make this? maybe they can just make the 747 SCA and the mount and i can place my hobby master 1/200 shuttle on top? lol

I have the dragon 1/400 747SCA and shuttle and it's quite nice.

I think AV200 have only done a 747 + shuttle. 4 types. main complaints were shuttles a bit crude. and shuttles placed too far back on fuselage. but pics on box showed correct position!





I have 6 out of the 10 DW shuttles released.

Yeah, I got 3 sets myself. They were always expensive. lol... gonna send an email to see if asm or airhub interested in doing one.

If you have a hobby master 1/200 shuttle, can you do me a favor and see if it's possible to somehow install that on the 747 sca . i am thinking about just asking them to make me the 747 sca with the mounting for the shuttle but without the shuttle and just use my hobby master shuttle since that is a better shuttle?

if you sold it to NEIL, (MSR777) then yes. I got from him. think it was £225 + post iirc.


Wildpig. when ARD got their PCM resin models originally, the 1/200 scale models were just £79.95 less 10% if club member. the 225 BURAN were £149.95 and mahogany. the 1/100 models were just £199.95! now they are twice that!
