Default 1/200 Arrival: Cubana IL-96 (Custom)

Stumbled across an IL-96 model on a Facebook group a while ago, and was re-directed to eBay I had a pleasant transaction with the builder who made this lovely Cubana IL-96. It's a bit more expensive than a diecast model, but it's certainly unique and looks just as good!

Enjoy the photos of my latest addition!

Great pictures as usual, and an interesting model for sure. Did you get it because you have some connection to the 1:1, or just because it was cool?

Thanks!

I was able to photograph the IL-96 twice in the older colors! Pretty unique bird and thought it would look cool on my diorama.

It's interesting to note that this thing is about the size of a 767

Nice model, great catch. you can never go wrong with a Russian widebody.. I see the contrail of that plane from time to time here in Florida passing over along the coast line.. I would imagine that model is plastic based on the heavy scribe lines?? my diecast versions lack those..

That's an awesome example too! Looks like you scored some more antennas/details. Is that a kit built by yourself?

You got that right! It is indeed plastic, but it displays well next to my diecast models. It would be great of Geminijets would make some Russian moulds...

Thanks! A bit pricey, but rare and nothing like it available on the market.
