1/144 - Ilyushin Il-76MD & TD "Candid" by Zvezda - released - Wolfpack Design decals

Recommended Posts

OK, I'm up for one! Zvezda, the new top choice in 1/144th airliners!

I absolutely love the Tubaer, sorry, the Trumpeter kit however the latest releases I checked in hobby shops indicate that the moulds are not ageing well.

The A320 slats & flaps were very nice. On the IL-62, they even managed to improve the recipe, spectacular. Just imagine in this Candid baby ? Should be in for something really special !

As much as I loved Revell 1/144 kits, I think Zvezda took the lead right from their very 1st airliner kit, the IL-86. The 787 wasn't as good as the others but all in all the detailing, accuracy & quality through the whole range is very constant, & imho above Revell.

True, if their recent offerings are anything to go by this should be well worth getting hold of. Hopefully other versions including the Beriev A-50 will come along at some point too....

Wish I had room for a beasty like that in my flat.

I'd seriously like to do it up in the spiffy green and white scheme that a Turkmenistan one was wearing when it passed through my local airport earlier this year.

Seems Airfix will not be the only model manufacturers getting some of my money next year :yahoo:

What does "Ultimate Kit" mean in the description?...very interesting subject, would look well next to the A400M from revell

Judging by the A320 and Il62 it should mean you get dropped flaps/slats, cockpit detail and loaded & unloaded landing gear. Hopefully they'll include a full interior and open rear doors.

I have trumpeter kit, it is nice except engines...too simple and not right shape. It will be nice to see one day ultimate Ruslan from Zvezda with dropped flaps...

I can picture how incredible this Candid will be, plus if you imagine all the special versions that can be quite easily made from, we're in for a feast !

That's just my opinion but Zvezda should later consider the Mriya instead of the Ruslan, AFAIK the An-225 has never been kitted before and the An-124 is still easily available from Revell (beautiful kit).

Anyway, I like that brand so much (I just got their 1/48 Pe-2, absurdly amazing kit) they could tool a 1/450 glider I would still be happy.

It is in 2016 catalogue, as I understand a lot of efforts and funds have been spent on the kit already. Let's hope it is just postponed.

I have been in correspondence with the Il-76 CAD designer at Zvezda - and to quote from his email.....

"The project of IL-76 is in the works."

So - not cancelled - just fitting it in with his other work.
