Revell 1/144 AN-225 Mriya??

Recommended Posts

Just taking my first look at this kit:

 

IMG_5377

 

You can build this in four versions:

 

  • Wheels up
  • Wheels down, nose closed
  • Wheels down, nose open
  • Wheels kneeling, nose open

It only has decals for the newest colour scheme, with the blue belly and yellow stripe.

 

There is no Buran space craft option, which I think would have been nice.

I got mine, too.
Quite big.
Looks good, but I think, grey plastic would be better.
Maybe someone could produce painting masks for the grey belly part.

I don't normally do 1/144 but, sometimes one has to be practical! 😅.

My partner bought me one for my birthday Beautiful model. I'm hoping she will get me another for Crimbo!

I don't like the scheme in the Revell kit so, it'll have to be a "what if" military version.

I like the scheme offerred by Zvezda! 😊

Cheaper than the Revell An-225 alone when on sale here...

Might not be when you add postage though? 😕

Several on ebay right now. Postage is a hefty £19 - £21 from the Russian Federation. Kit itself not much cheaper than UK retail price for the Revell issue

Reading into it, you have to be a member on the website to get the Buran.
