Default Tu-114 and other Russian Propliners

Does anyone know if there are any plans to produce the Tu-114, or the Il-18? The Tu-114 would be amazing in this scale!

..... It sure would be an amazing model and they'd be snapped up like there was no tomorrow. Even a "Bear" version.
..... But alas we've been teased with nebulous promises and so on, but here we still eagerly wait. Maybe one is in the works by the one who has a penchant for such planes, but he and his minions are usually quite tight-lipped about their plans.
..... So we may continue to hope. Some gems have appeared before such as the Fokkers, Britannias, Comets and Tridents. There may be hope yet.

I think we might have the Tu-114 from Klein, We have Aeroflot 50s/60s, Aeroflot 70s, Aeroflot/JAL. Just to name a few of them, and since Aeroflot/JAL was basically on the 50s/60s scheme, it might be right down his ally.

I personally think that the IL-18s and AN-24/26/30/32 would be really appreciated here. As would other great birds like the IL-14. I think the IL-18 and AN-24 have the highest probability for being produced by any of the manufactures, as they do have quite a library of schemes, and licensing shouldn't be too bad to, since they served well for most of the airlines they flew for and even have what could be considered legendary to them (like LOT and the IL-18, I think the IL-18 was a symbol of them back in the days of the PRL).

True and perhaps from several different directions. Something coming in October that I am very excited about but not from the Kleinmeister.

Why doesn't anyone ever mention a Tu-134? Doesn't anyone want one?

Favourite Russian propliner would be the AN-12, any livery would be fantastic. It would need to come with an artificial smoke generator.... seen one take off in Toronto two years ago and it reduced runway visibillity for a while.
But yes I've been advocating for the longest time for Russian aircraft, specially for me in LOT polish airlines colours would be an instant sell out.

Slight correction to my post, the Antonov company is proudly Ukrainian.

I have one from WM in 1:200 metal for sale. It is beatiful but does not fit my large scale collection.
Please let me know if interested.

Cheers
