  1. My next project is the Antonov 74TK-300D. Quite a special aircraft since only two of this variant were built: the two prototypes. One of which ended up in Iran and other is used as the presidential aircraft of Ukraine. The An-74TK-300D is a variant of the An-74, which is a further development of the An-72. The most important characteristic of the An-72 are the engines, which are mounted half-way in the wings in order to obtain excellent STOL qualities (thanks to the Coandă effect). The nickname of the An-72, by the way, was Чебурашка (Cherboerashka) after the well-known Soviet film figure: The An-74 is in fact an An-72, but then intended for use in arctic conditions. This later formed the basis for the An-74TK, which was intended for passengers instead of cargo. The -300 was a special variant of the An-74TK as it was originally intended for civil passenger transport, with the most striking feature being that this time the engines are suspended with pylons under wings as STOL was not necessary for the intended application. Potential customers, however, saw more in a clean sheet design, which ultimately resulted in the (not entirely successful) An-148. I made the An-148 four years ago, see also: https://modelbrouwers.nl/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=46870. The An-74TK-300D has not actually transported any paying passengers, but it does have a civil registration as it is used by the government of Ukraine (similar to our Dutch PH-GOV or its predecessor PH-KBX, of which it is forever a shame that it did not go to the Aviodrome). Anyway, as said only two An-74TK-300D aircraft were ever build, but still there is a kit, that of PAS models. I already had experience with PAS, since I once made a 757 from them. And indeed I was not disappointed by the An-74TK-300D as well, although the fit of the fuselage wasn’t too great. Anyway the pictures (I’m aware that I used two different registrations on the model. That has since been corrected, but I didn’t feel like taking new pictures): And lastly a picture with it’s granddaughter (the An-148): My next model will be the Authentic Airliners BAC1-11 in KLM colours. Thanks for watching and see you next time.
  2. Hi all, There really is no hope for me and my ever growing stash! In January I added the F-Rsin A300-600 (Monarch Airlines), a Welsh Models Bombardier CRJ-200 and now this Pas Models 1/144 Antonov An-32. I've loved the An-32 since being a kid, the engines look so out of proportion with rest of the aircraft, it looks a bit bonkers, so I thought I'd share some photos of the kit. Regards, Darren
  3. Can you imagine a ship with cruise speed of 65 Km/H? Enter PAKETA - Rocket - the first production hydrofoil commercial vessel https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raketa_(hydrofoil) PAS Models is producing a lovely replica kit of this elegant ship in 1/144 that could be made into a real eye catcher http://pas-decals.ru/forum/suda-na-podvodnykh-krylyakh/6183-spk-raketa-1-144-pas-decals-avtor-d-vostrikov There was a nice article in M-Hobby magazine with a lot of nice hints provided that you read Russian Okay - let's get started Mould quality is OK but far from immaculate. Mr. Resin Surfacer to rescue
  4. To complete a trio of recent builds here is something a bit different. I saw my first An-72 many years ago, from a train passing the end of the runway at Edinburgh Airport. At that time I didn’t know much about Soviet aircraft and I had no idea what the strange apparition was. A phone call to a friend who worked at the airport established that it was an An-72 doing a Royal Mail charter on behalf of Channel Express. I promised myself that one day I would build a model and about 13 years later here it is. My first attempt was with the Amodel kit, a memory which still makes me shudder. Eventually I did what I should have done all along and used the superb PAS resin kit, a delightfully easy and straightforward build despite the weird shape of the real thing. Apart from the windscreen (by PAS) decals are by Two Six, an early-ish sheet and perhaps not one of Ray’s best efforts. It was presumably designed for the Amodel kit and needed quite a bit of nipping and tucking to fit the PAS version. This led in turn to a fair amount of retouching, the light blue in particular being very difficult to match. The dark blue also had a nasty tendency to flake off which caused further problems. Never mind, I’m reasonably happy with the final result and looking forward to my next PAS build which will probably be the rather more conventional Boeing 717. As always thanks for looking and I promise this is the last one for the time being!

  5. Hello, the postie dropped this off this morning: the 2012 PAS Models Boeing 757-200 resin kit. Hopefully I'm not treading on anyone's toes by posting some pictures of the kit. I have no first-hand experience of the Minicraft or Authentic Airliners kits, so I can't really compare directly, however, this looks like a finely detailed kit and I think it will build into a nice model. The moulding seems generally good, with only a few small bubbles. The trailing edges are paper thin, unfortunately one of the horizontal stabilisers has lost a corner because of this. Thanks for looking. Sorry the lighting isn't fantastic. Larger versions are available on my Flickr page.
