  1. Takom is well known by AFV - aka targets - modellers not really by aircraft modellers. There's a recent announcement in the Chinese producer Facebook with what is obviously a Lun-class MD-160 Ekranoplan. So, soon something flying in the Takom range of kits? Time will tell.

  2. The Aleksayev Lun ekranoplan ..... has been moved from its dry dock in Kaspiisk ( https://igor113.livejournal.com/51213.html?page=1) to a new location ........... http://translate.google.com/translate?prev=/language_tools&u=https%3A%2F%2Fzen.yandex.ru%2Fmedia%2Flanasator%2Fekranoplan-lun-proekta-903-v-derbente-udalos-oboiti-ohranu-i-popast-vnutr-5f30e9b9bbe8572b801cebe9 Interesting story of a fascinating machine....

  3. WIP is here :- Some pics of the finished model........ The contraprops came from an old Contrail vacform Tu-95, the number 21 was painted on using a cutout mask and the eagle emblem was made by a friend who scaled up the Revell 1/144 A-90 kit decal. My 1/72 scale Orlyonok at speed across my lounge carpet... Closeup of the cockpit glazing - note the rear view mirrors and simple 'artificial horizon'. The rough red outline is deliberate! Note the large anti-spray strakes... Scratchbuilt gun turret with 12.7mm barrels from suitable tubing. Rear engine and contraprops - note the APU exhaust and Russian Navy flag. NK-12MK turboprop showing the 'pen nib' exhaust fairing. Sequence showing the nose opening..... Note the cruise engine exhaust nozzle - note that I have got it wrong - it should be narrower to allow it to pivot to direct the thrust under the wings for takeoff and straight back for cruise. Almost fully open - note the front hydroski with its beaching wheel..... Loading ramps extended... The BTR-80 is a crude limited-run injection-moulded kit that I picked up in Moscow many years ago - long before the current crop of decent kits. Closeup of the sideways-opening nose... On display at Scalemodelworld 2014 - next to my Modelsvit An-124 and Flankers - to show scale. Closer view from Telford... The model was made long before I photgraphed the real thing - now on display on Khimki reservoir in Moscow... After being floated upriver on the Volga from Kasspiisk on the Caspian Sea, the A-90 'Orlyonok' ekranoplan - number 26 - is being prepared for display at Khimki reservoir in 2007. Note the cruise ships at the Moscow North River Terminal in the background. I'll post more of my pics later... Ken
