Beriev Be-10 'Mallow' - 1/72 scale Amodel kit

Recommended Posts

I can't keep up with all these new releases from the Ukraine......

Hot on the heels of the Modelsvit M-17 Mystic, comes the new 1/72 scale Amodel kit of the Soviet-era jet flying boat - the Beriev Be-10 'Mallow'.

Box art.....

Probably due to mould size limitations, the fuselage is in front and rear halves - which might make for an interesting joint !!

The third part of the fuselage is the tail gun position - plus the centre section and wing fences.

Upper and lower centre section parts....

Upper.....

There is quite a lot of flash present - but the engraved panel detail is well executed

An excellent release from Amodel which adds to my growing Beriev flying boat collection (Trumpeter Be-6, Modelsvit Be-12 and Amodel Be-200)

Now, if only someone would do a 1/72 scale Be-42 (A-40 Albatros) 'Mermaid'

OHH my goodness!

I've been in love with this flying boat since I saw Flankerman's outstanding vacuform build.

Anyone knows who will carry this in the USA?

Thanks,

Ernie A.
