Default Updated Mould Review - Ilyushin IL-62

Thanks to Phantom II's new information and several recent releases by Gemini and JC Wings it is well overdue for the IL-62 mould review to get an update. I've also added a small wishlist to the end of it. I'm sure there are more, plus of course if anyone fancied modifying the engines to make an IL-62 'sans-suffix' there are even more:

I'm a big Russian airliner fan, and the IL-62 is probably my favorite of them all. Nice update Rich, not realized there'd be so much tinkering with the Gemini/JC mould over time.

I'd venture there's a couple more liveries that could be done that would sell well:

Aeroflot - 1980's/1990's scheme without the Olympics titles
Air Ukraine
Tarom - other 1990's red/white liveries
Uzbekistan Airways

I also have the Cubana and love it but it's the only IL-62 that I have in my collection.

A Dalavia and a SAT would go nicely in my 'flown on' collection. But I'm not holding my breath!

I have the Cubana and the North Korean IL62 both which I saw at Manchester, the latter on a one-off visit. Would love a Tarom old colours too.

I wish GJ would use this mould more for some IL-62 delivery schemes - LOT and Tarom, both with window cheatlines to start with.

It's got the wrong engines to be a IL-62 sans suffix

I wonder why AC never made an Il-62 mould...

Would be great if Gemini can release the Aeroflot IL-62M on the new mould, without any special titles.

I guess in terms of national carriers the choice is limited, e.g. Aeroflot, CSA, LOT, Cubana, Malev, Air Koryo, CAAC, TAAG, etc. - several of which have already been covered by GJ/JC. Whilst some of the later operators were interesting, I don't know how well they would sell.
