Very tempted by this even though I have yet to finish the An-124 (and Tu-144 and Il-86) 

One concern from the rendering is the new centre section which seems a bit too deep. Most frontal shots on airliners.net seem to show a horizontal line between the new inboard engines.  Perhaps its just the angle.

No 3D renderings have been posted, and they have quoted this "(Image bellow has only illustrating purpose, not to be considered as 3D render)"

Cool! Maybe a 1/72 A380 will be next. At least there are a lot more marking options.

Still need a (non-resin) 747 first! 

 

But I'd still require a visit to the cardiologist if Modelsvit announced an A380 in 1:72.

Love the working undercarriage oleos, I've often wished for that in a kit. 

I guess in this case it will help to keep all those wheels flat on the deck.

If it is anything like their An-124 (and I think it is) - there is no way that the accurate, to scale undercarriage will support the weight of the model.

I made a support 'box' from clear perspex to support the weight -

Dear All,
Herein would like to inform you that the release of An-225 "Mriya" (#7206, #7207)to be postponed for the end of Q1, 2020.
The kit is already in production, however - manufacturing process of fiberglass parts ( wing, fuselage) takes more time and effords, as far as it is handmade.
Official retail price shall be announced in the end of Jan/early Feb 2020.
Thank you for your attention!
