Trumpeter 1/144th IIyushin A-50 Mainstay
Small scale model of a big aircraft. When it comes to Soviet aircraft, mine are usually 1/72, with a few in 1/48th, and only “fighters”. OK, an occasional II-28. When I had the opportunity to pick up 3 big Russian aircraft at a bargain price, I ended up with this, an IIushin IL-78 Midas, and a 1/100th Antonov An-12BK Cub. They all sit next to my Revell Ekranoplan A-90 Orljonok , which I think is 1/144th also. No major build problems, and even in that small scale, look impressive…..
