Default Tupolev Trijets: A Tu-154 Wishlist

With the Tu-154 back in business using the Aeroclassics mould there is still a lot of potential for the Russian trijet. I would obviously love to see a new Tu-154 casting but I doubt that's going to happen so I'm happy enough for more from the AC stable. Here are over 30 potentials:

I see you've got the Sibaviatrans as well.
Was a "regular" in NUE in the mid 90's

Other must haves for me - all a rather common sight in the 90's:
UN-85782 Tu-154M VIPAir by RedRipper24, auf Flickr
SAN Air Company TU-154 RA-85822 1996 by LH401, auf Flickr
And of course
DUSSELDORF JULY 1994 AEROSERVICE KAZAKHSTAN TUPOLEV TU154 UN-85539 by simon butler, auf Flickr


A new mould would be great though. Decals would be ready half the way for SND and VPA.

I thought had a decent handle on obscure Russian and ex-CIS airlines but I admit I've never heard of these 3!

Ask a German aviation fan who spent time spotting at airports like NUE, HAJ, CGN, FRA or DUS and she/he'll probably name those three.
These airlines were among others busy in repatriation charters (Kazakhstan->Germany) in the 90's. SND and VPA even carried the German flag in their liveries.
The last pic is amazing btw, as it shows both Aeroservice airframes in one image.

As it was said: we need a new mould. If not possible, PHX over AC.

I'm 100% with you on the Kolavia and Kish 154's. Here's some other cool 154's. Would be nice to see some of these made

I'd be all over the Alrosa's for sure, since they were the final operator of the type. I'd love to see RA-85757 in the new colors (which I flew on in 2018), and RA-85684 in the old colors as it wore during the 'Izhma' incident.

Although I'll buy pretty much any Russian bird that emerges.

Already done by Gemini. What we need is one in Malev's delivery colours, as Phoenix completely got the blue color WAY out!

Another omission is Balkan-Bulgarian's early scheme.

Sorry I meant 'last' as in the last post showing it - i.e the delivery colours.

Adrian, you've saved me having to look up photos. These are the two TU-154's I especially want. Another Aeroflot in classic 80's blue-cheatline wouldn't hurt either.

There have been 3 Interflug Tu-154 releases (2 by AC and 1 by Phoenix). I doubt we'll see another
