I bear on your court the work. - Russian military transport aircraft. Scale (). Objective was to construct ' done some flying ' a board with traces of operation. But without fanaticism. It has turned out or not - to judge to you.

Completions has lead the following:

  • replaced some of the antennas and sensors
  • the lights on the wing tips made of a transparent resin
  • antenna - nylon thread
  • for the first time for me on this model I tried to do rejected handlebars height, direction and ailerons. An attempt to simulate a left turn of the aircraft
  • added antistatic from the line d of 0.01 mm.
  • light bulb rear white lamp - transparent plastic
  • because the military plane, made front lights according to their locations (blue and white). They are made by drilling holes, painting color silver reflector, and fill with epoxy
  • the clamps on the exhaust pipe in the nacelle is made of self-adhesive foil windshield wipers - black beading wire
  • tubing on the landing gear - tin wire, d 0.3 mm. Clamps for it too foil.
  • technicals all homemade

  1. it looks real nice

  2. Very nice, subtle weathering, Dmitry. I like the idea to display the model in flight with that kind of base.

  3. Dmitry, beautifully painted, weathered , and built. Thanks for posting this, we don't get to see some aircraft as often as we'd like. Some years back, the only time we'd see something like this (the actual aircraft) would be a grainy photo taken on May Day through somebodies trenchcoat.
    This looks like the real thing, congratulations!
