Modelsvit is testing the 1/72nd Antonov An-225 Mriya/"Cossack" kit concept. Source: https://www.facebook.com/modelsvit/photos/a.1859368940998815.1073741830.1854784001457309/2094262810842759/?type=3&theater V.P.
An-225 Mriya 1/144 I've seen a few attempts at this but haven't seen one finished yet so I've decided to take the plunge myself. The most obvious way to do this is to purchase 2 An-124 kits and extend the fuselage and wings. The tail will obviously have to be scratch built. I'm already waiting for the 124 kits in the post. However I've decided to build the core of the model using 2-d prints. I've estimated the fuselage length at 1/144 scale about 53.62cm, and that is the exact size that I will print off for the side profile. Theres also some fuselage sections which will come in handy to build up those extensions The tailcone is different to the 124. concentrating purely on the fuselage I'm estimating this is where it ends tidied up the diagram and printed out to size Looks like a scratch build from this but i want to make sure that the core of the model is strong enough so parts can be added gradually - its going to be heavy and BIG! The fuselage profile isn't exactly the same as the 124 so this also gives me a better idea.
