Tupolev TU-144 Prototype Nitto 1/132
Alex1978 posted a topic in Ready for Inspection - AircraftThe TU-144 was Russia's answer to the Concorde,although it was plagued with problems and accidents which resulted in only a very limited time in commercial service. The prototype is very different from the later version that made it into service,comparing the 2 makes you think to look at completely different aircraft. This is the very old Nitto kit and besides the 1/100 Plasticart kit the only one of the TU-144 Prototype. Its in a rather unusual scale in 1/132,but close enough to 1/144 so placing her alongside the Concorde would be a nice thing. The kit is rather simple but quite accurate in shape,it has not many parts and all fits together very well with only some minor areas that need some filling and sanding. The only downside is that it has no option to build it gear up,although a display stand is included.It would certainly look much more elegant in flight. Despite its age,the decals were still in good condition and could be used without any problems. This was a straight out of the box build,to keep the character of this ancient kit. Paints by Revell and Testors enamels applied with my airbrush.Bare Metal Foil was applied at the rudder on the tailfin Cheers
