Default A Crusty Crusade: Tu-134 Wishlist

Hi All. Obviously Panda have just announced some new models and none are Tu-134s, which is a real shame. They don't seem to know what to do with the mould. To give them some ideas here is a pretty exhaustive list of civilian operators (over 60) that could be made - organised roughly in sales potential. Obviously for many airlines there are two versions that can be made and I've pointed this out in the review for each airline.

https://www.yesterdaysairlines.com/m...u-134-wishlist

I've actually just made contact with Panda so I'm hopeful that they might begin to pay some attention here too.

Great shout out for this mould. I especially like the category prioritization list -

Aeroflot
Warsaw Pact
Other Non-Soviet Operators
Baltic States
Russian
CIS Airlines

The first 3 would get deep into my wallet as they are must haves for me.

Cheers
Mark

Excellent summary of the TU-134's which can be made Richard!

I hope Panda uses this as a reference for future production as it covers most of those examples which would have broad appeal amongst collectors, and provides the visual distinction on which mould types were operated for each livery, which should help avoid any screw ups on solid versus glazed noses. I like the look of the glazed nose more, so where the option of both exists on any particular scheme, that would be my choice!

Particularly for me in your list, I'd buy all of these (and become very poor in the process ):
Aeroflot (80's & 90's schemes)
LOT (last scheme)
Balkan (90's scheme)
CSA (all 3 liveries)
Hemus Air
Interflug (final scheme D- reg)
Malev (both liveries)
Aviogenex
Greenair
Syrianair (early scheme)
Latavio
Lat Charter
Lithuanian (both schemes)
Pulkovo
Armenian (both schemes)
Azerbaijan
Belavia
Air Moldova
Orbi
Tajikistan
Air Ukraine

Plus these which you didn't mention:

Estonian Air
Baltic International (very easy to do, as same livery as Latavio)
There also a few more LatCharter liveries which would be great to see (especially the Baltija c/s)

Can't wait to see more TU-134's! - go Panda

We've been asking for this in 1/400 for years, so surely the best sales would come if this model is made in the colours of the flag carriers of the Warsaw Pack countries. Here are my top two dozen and I would buy every one:

1. Aeroflot ( Soviet Union) delivery colours CCCP-reg
2. Aeroflot (Soviet Union) late colours CCCP-reg
3. Aeroflot (Russia flag) RA- reg
4. Aeroflot leased to Malev
5. Aeroflot final silver livery
6. LOT Poland – delivery colours
7. LOT Poland – late colours
8. Balkan – Bulgarian delivery colours – red cheatline
9. Balkan – Bulgarian delivery colours – blue cheatline
10. Balkan – Bulgarian – final colours
11. Interflug – East Germany
12. Malev – Hungary delivery colours
13. Malev – Hungary – final colours
14. CSA – Czech – delivery colours
15. CSA – Czech- final colours
16. Hang Kong Vietnam
17. Vietnam Airlines
18. Syrianair
19. Aviogenex – Yugoslavia
20. Latavia – Latvia
21. Belavia – Belarus
22. Estonian Air
23. Air Moldova

Do Panda ever look at this forum? We've been there before here:

This one has been made, although I know you didn't like the colour. If you mean the wavy flag with flagpole scheme then that was never worn by a Tu-134A or B and they don't have a mould for the Tu-134 'sans suffix'

Things are looking hopeful. You may have noticed in the Panda new release thread:

It's in production
From the horse's mouth. So hopefully we will soon see some from the lists in this thread.


There's a couple more Aeroflot variations I'd like to see in addition to those listed.
1. the late 1980's 'new' (darker blue cheatline and tail stripes) livery for the 90's that was never widely adopted due to the fall of the Soviet Union.
https://www.airliners.net/photo/Aero...4A-3/2643745/L

2. The post Soviet Aeroflot Plus branding in the original 'Red Banner' tail
https://www.airliners.net/photo/Aero...4A-3/1230467/L

3. and subsequent 'Globe' tail schemes.
https://www.airliners.net/photo/Aero...4A-3/1371786/L

In any case there's a whole bunch from the lists above that are must haves for me to go in my 'flown on' collection. Bring 'em on!

Hi guys, thanks a lot for all the valuable suggestions, actuallly, the Interflug's and Aeroflot ( Soviet Union) are already included in our future production schedule but the reg no. haven't been confrimed yet, it would be pretty good if you guys willing to recommend. As for others in the wishlist, we would take an serious consideration and try to push them out this year.

Hi Panda. Not making any TU-134 suggestions (personally it doesn't interest me) but obviously a big interest amongst our collectors. Just wanted to say, its nice to welcome you on the forum and see you guys getting involved like we see with some of the other manufacturers!

Not so Richard! That blue scheme was a short-lived 'experimental' livery not applied to any other Aeroflot types and not sure how many Tu-134s wore that scheme. THIS was the Aeroflot delivery scheme I am referring to.

Your image shows the scheme Richard refers to, but its a 134 (no A there)
Panda's a 134A.

Would be like applying a Comet 4 scheme on a Comet 1 mould.

But the step from the A to nonA is pretty small.

Two metre stretch, different placement of the main landing gear, no thrust reversers on the engines and a parachute. The difference is certainly noticeable - much like the difference between an F28-1000 and 4000

Indeed, no APU exhaust at the tail tip, no thrust reversers and has the big airbrake (which, admittedly the first tranche of A's also had) the fuselage length is a bit trickier to see, but it is definitely short. This is a basic 134.

Now there I think you are overstating the case. Surely more like applying a Comet 4C scheme to a Comet 4? Who would do such a thing?


Given that and given the realistic (i.e. minimal) likelihood of the original shorty 134 mould being made, I think I could live with 134 schemes on a 134A mould without losing too much sleep. YMMV and it obviously does, which is fine.

The placing of the main landing gear is a result of the shortened fuselage.

You clearly haven't got a clue! The Tu-134 that Panda made was in a short-lived Aeroflot blue scheme and NOT the one shown in my photo! Also if you kept up with the posts by Panda, they said they have moulds for BOTH Tu-134 variants.

When they said both variants they mean the glazed nose Tu-134A and the solid nosed Tu-134A/B not the Tu-134 'sans suffix'. The scheme you showed was never worn by an A or B. The short-lived scheme was the Tu-134A specific scheme.

The mould is the same. The difference is, that nosecone is printed with a "glas cone". They also confirmed the shortbody 134 as far as I do remember....

Seriousely, Adrian?
Again, Tu-134 and Tu-134A (B etc..) are noticeably different aircraft. Panda does NOT have a mould for the airframe/livery in your photo as Richard pointed out already.

Oh, and as we are on it: 707-320 and 707-320B are not the same either.

The one with the navigator's glass nose has its radar in an extra "hump" in front of its nose gear. Panda accurately has that detail so that there are differences in mould.

Correct. The basic Tu-134 is around 2,5m shorter in front of the wings and 12 pax less in capacity.

As for others in the wishlist, we would take an serious consideration and try to push them out this year.
Hey FlyingPanda - since you asked.......I'd recommend registrations:

- D-AOBK for the Interflug TU-134 (last livery)
- DDR-SCY (Interflug earlier livery), and
- CCCP-65854 for the Aeroflot

There are three Interflug livery variants as described in my list and handily each has a different rego prefix (DM-, DDR- and D-) so they can use those images for the three releases but can always change the reg.

For a good mix, reg and mould variants, how about:
- DM-SCK (a Tu-134A(N) in the early bare scheme - and a still existing airframe)
- DDR-SCY (a Tu-134A in the later grey livery, white radome)
- DM-SCL - SCK's sistership - in NVA/LSK colors for a difference

I'd particularly love the latter, while I'm not much a fan D- regs on anything Interflug.


Edit:
Since this scheme wasn't shown, here's SCL as it appeared in 1975 while being with the LSK/LV

That is a very generous offer. I'm assuming you are looking at doing the 'unified' (post 1973) Aeroflot scheme, sometimes called the billboard scheme as on these examples?


I wish I had recorded the registrations of the 134s I flew on as a kid/teen back in the Soviet days, but it never occurred at the time to make a record and I suspect it would have been frowned upon!

So any Soviet era Aeroflot registration 134A and 134B will make me really happy, thank you!


If you are looking at a couple of simple modifications to this scheme that I think would sell well in addition to the ones above, there are two I would like to suggest:

1) the 1980 'Official Olympic Carrier' titles on the unified Aeroflot scheme, as on CCCP-65770. (Watch out for the font on the Olympic title, it is a bit weird!)
https://www.airliners.net/photo/Aero...4A-3/6019055/L

2) the late 1980's new scheme for the 1990's which was a fairly simple modification of the unified Aeroflot scheme with blue stripes on the tail. This was to be fleet-wide, but the fall of the Soviet Union saw it discarded after only some aircraft had been painted, like CCCP-65914.
https://www.airliners.net/photo/Aero...4A-3/2643745/L


Those are my requests for what they are worth.

I see many good Interflug suggestions in the posts above too, so will leave it with you and hope you will be able to produce these in the next year or so.

Thank you again for producing the Ty-134 for us!

Above Tu-114 makes great suggestions for registrations, but these would also be fantastic. I loved the first release (which is my smallest model) and would really love to get more.

These are all Tu-134 'sans suffix, and not the Tu-134A/B that Panda has a mould for.

This Aeroflot scheme was never worn by a Tu-134 that Panda has a mould for.

Aviogenex is needed but they only operated solid nosed Tu-134s of the versions that Panda has a mould for.

Whether this is an issue depends on how much you care about the differences between the types but it is an important distinction to make.
