It's not that limited: the SSJ can be produced in at least 25 liveries at this point, and there are additional airlines that have them on order that haven't been delivered yet (in fairness, covid may put the kibosh on some of those). Herpa invested in a 1:400 767-400 with a max of about 6 liveries, and they have a 1:500 SSJ, so they're probably the best hope.
Yamal and Interjet are "flown on" examples for me, and I agree the Yakutia is a nice livery. Of course Aeroflot would probably sell well. Personally I'd pick up pretty much anything that was produced, since a lot of them are liveries that I don't have other examples of. So yes I would love to see an SSJ in 1:400.
My holy grails:
Sun Country 727-200 late 1990's colors
Alrosa Tu-154 latest colors / Tu-134 old colors
Yamal & Interjet SSJ-100
Kenya Airways 737-800 New colors
Flown on: A300/310/319/320/321/332/333/343/380 AN24/28/38/148 ATR42/72 B190
