  1. Hi everybody! Upcoming project will be another unusual soviet russian object, but this time a completely non-fictional one that actually flew. It's an Antonow An-71 AEW/tracking system based on a highly modified airframe of the Antonow An-72 series. This is in the box: 6 sprues of light grey styrene, 1 sprue with clear parts, 1 small PE fret, decals and instructions booklet. The eagle-eyed among you might already have spotted a tiny little amount of flash here and there. I think you know AModel kits, so I don't think that I have to tell you that this won't be an easy going build at all. This will be a slow, very slow build, I'm afraid. Well...I must be masochistic. The build will start soon, first I have to sort some real life things. Any thoughts, comments, encouragements will be very welcome! Thanks for looking.
  2. Antonov An-71 NATO reporting name Madcap Soviet AWACS aircraft. Only 3 prototype aircraft were built. Pics taken at The Ukraine State Aviation Museum Zhulyany, Kiev. Pics thanks to Dave Haskell.
  3. Hi, Built alongside the similar An-74 and brought out of the stash by a request for a copy of the instructions by a fellow Britmodeller, this found its way onto my workbench! The Amodel parts provide a replacement fuselage from behind the cockpit and the rotodome and are very well done in their usual fibreglass. The original base kit (Toko/Roden) provides the rest and the engine panels don't fit at all well requiring much filler and sanding. To help with the masking I scanned the kit decals, printed them out and taped them onto the model. Once the white and grey were applied I started to apply the decals which decided to explode on contact with water! Luckily I had kept the scan and used it to produce my own decals which went on without any further problems. I originally was going to follow Ken Duffey's (Flankerman) example and convert the Toko kit, Ken was kind enough to send me lots of information on the An-71 about 15 years ago, which was invaluable in this build. Cheers Ken. Couldn't find any photos showing the intake on the upper fuselage for the third engine, but didn't think Amodel's 'representation' of nothing at all was very likely so I cut out a rectangle and added some mesh. No idea if it's correct but it looks better than just seeing the fuselage through the open door. Anyway here it is...... Steve
