Myasishchev M-50 Bounder, Anigrand 1/144
The Myasishchev M-50 Bounder was a Sovjet bomber prototype in the late 50ies, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myasishchev_M-50 for more details.
The M-50 was Anigrand’s second resin kit, released in 2007. Casting quality is fine but adding filler, sanding, filler, sanding, … is a must. I reworked the front main gear according pictures and shortened the rear landing gear significantly to make the plane look right. I chose the early silver color sheme with the identification number 023, not the later designation 12 for the Tushino air show. A reshaped GPS antenna from Braz was used for the antenna housing on the fuselage because this is missing in the kit. It’s a huge model even in 1/144, about 40 cm long.
