Received mine Dec 31, from Aviation Mega Store figured I would show what’s in the box. The parts look great. 30 pages of instructions. Still setting up my model bench so it may be a month or so before I can get to it, can’t wait.

Could you post the sprue shots next to a baby hippo so we can appreciate its size?

That thing is massive! Is that the stabilizer in the 2nd shot?

I emailed Scalehobbyist and he said he doesn't even know if it will be imported to the US and that it wasn't currently listed with his importer.   Does anybody have any other information on when/if it might be available from US distributors?

Got mine from Aviation Megastore but now its available on Amazon from a UK vendor. I haven't seen it pop up online and any of the US stores. I'll have to ask at the local Hobbytown if they will get any.

I really had to have one of those beasts!

Mine is coming to Houston from Amazon Germany.

$135.00 two week delivery, plus taxes? I guess import tax?

No custom duty; VAT should have been removed. Does TX have a sales tax?

Yes we do.

That must be it.

 

Who operates the AN-225?

Does Volga Dnepr operates it?

 

They just open a huge cargo center in Houston IAH. I am hoping I get a chance to do a walk around of that monster like I did the AN-125 yes ago

Well that was fast!

My 225 arrived in 12 days from Germany.

For sure I will get another one from Amazon.

 

Is there a 1/144 Buran?

I am considering building mine as a shuttle carrier!

 

BTW, this thing is massive!

I so want one but I just can't justify the $200au price tag at the moment.  I just hope Revell keep making it for a few years  to come 😄
