      Of all the 1/144th scale kits, I hoped Revell would do, this doesn't even make it into the top 100 for me

      Me neither, but you have to admit it will be impressive. Their An-124 is a great kit.

      But why this price jump ? The AN-124 was for about 25€ and the AN-225 for 90€ ? for only 2 more engines and 4 more wheels ?

      Must have seen the price Roden was charging for their C-5 and acted accordingly.

      Maybe it comes with a Buran!

      Only yesterday I was clearing up a storage box of unfinished projects... and found the engines, wheels and fuselage parts of a Revell An-124 I once built. I saved them with the idea of needing them whenever I decided to build a 225. Tossed them away, because, yeah, no one has room for storing a 1:144 An-225.
      Turns out, I actually have to make room for a 225. Thanks Revell

      An-225 is perfect to me.
      If not with a Buran, which I really hope, perhaps someone else beside Anigrand will do one once....

      Might be by far too big for me. And the announced price
      of 101,58€ makes it perfect for the next X-Mas gift.
      I move over more and more to smaller aircraft.

      Anyway....interestingly no infos on REVELL's homepage.
      Absolute nothing......and Hannants still have the price...
      Somewhat strange....

      Wow that thing is going to be HUGE. I have a hard time believe there is a big enough market appeal to make such a kit worth it but I'd guess Revell knows the numbers better than I do...

      Because this is Hannants. The most expensive place you can buy almost anything. Not sure how they stay in business.

      Not in any case! I live in Europe and I buy in Europe (almost).
      Some items are cheaper as e.g. AMS and the shipping rate is lower - compared to AMS
      and online modeling shops in the U.S..
      Compare the prices before buying is recommended.
      Depending on the exchange rate - the Dollar is low at the moment.

      The 225 visits Houston often.
      She is massive and impressive.
      I will love one. I thought AModel had announced one a couple of years ago.

      Hannants is an awesome family own hobby shop.
      I get all my RVHP kits from them. Best service ever and I have no
      complains with the prices.

      Aha! But Hannants still have the info, catalogue-nr
      and the (announced) price at first just before all others
      ..interesting!
      Do they have a mole at Revell?

      AMS is utterly ridiculous. Not only are their prices high, but their shipping is beyond believe. I wanted to buy a tiny PE fret that would easily fit into a standard business envelope with a regular stamp. They wanted to charge me 25 Euros for shipping.

      Yep, Jennings, you're right about AMS shipping charges.
      They ship only with UPS.
      I don't order very often at AMS but if so,
      I make a bulk order so that the shipping costs are worthwhile.
      Or I pick up my order at their store when
      I make a trip to Amsterdams coffee shops.

      PE parts and decals they've shipped always in an
      envelope somewhat cheaper.

      But by the way...I found price differences
      between AMS and Hannats for the same item of
      3-4 € sometimes more.
      Hannants prices will go down somewhat
      when the U.K. is out of the E.U.
      We save 19% tax. Hopefully!

      I've said it before, and I'm going to say it again: that's the fault of the shipping companies. Shipping anything abroad from NL is crazy expensive if it has to be insured. They charge normal and reasonable fares for shipping inside the country.

      A while back, I sent out a decal to Australia and it arrived damaged beyond repair, which happened while the envelope was still in the Netherlands. No way to claim the damage as I used the uninsured option. Insuring it would have cost €17 (for a 50 gram flat envelope!!) and that was the standard national mail company called PostNL. No idea about UPS and other companies but I do know it's not cheaper than that.

      A business envelope with an airmail stamp on it (the PE fret was the size of a business card). Sorry.

      Before we returning to the topic a last word about shipping charges.
      Of course, FlyingDutchman, you're absolutely right:
      Neither AMS nor any other online store is responsible for the shipping charges
      (the same when some collegues complain they get to less netto salary
      - it's not the fault of the company - the government is greedy for the money)

      The shipping costs are high across the Atlantic -
      in BOTH (!!!!!!)directions.

      I wanted to buy a not modelling related item in an U.S. online store.
      The shipping charges to Germany would be twice so expensive as the item was.
      I let it be and kept my hands off!

      And now let's return to the announced Revell AN-225...

      Makes perfect sense if they're going to use existing An-124 parts.

      Hi All,

      Just received the Revell newsletter.
      Link here : https://www.revell-news.de/display.php?M=203909&C=37644421ee0417c5daaf5b18fe8350b2&S=697&L=36&N=309
      An-225 confirmed - also the 747-8F in UPS colors.
      No mention of the A320Neo or A321Neo however - my hopes are on Zvezda now.

      Cheers,

      Jan

      Good news :-) For me it will have to wait till I build my AN-124, Beluga, some more Guppies, Carvair, C-5 Airliner etc....

      I haven't read any recent info but it would seem that Revell Germany is able to get past the Hobbico bankruptcy. Someone must have bought the Revell assets/brand.

      Ken



      Have googled and couldn't found a note on Wikipedia about Revell's actual status.
      But found a hint on Wikipedia under "Hobbico":

      "Estes Industries acquired the Estes-Cox business unit and a German VC group acquired Revell Germany whole and the Revell-Monogram brands, IP & molds."

      Sven

      P.S.: What's a VC group?????

      I looked up Venture Capital just to be sure I knew what it was...

      Venture capital (VC) is a type of private equity,[1] a form of financing that is provided by firms or funds to small, early-stage, emerging firms that are deemed to have high growth potential, or which have demonstrated high growth (in terms of number of employees, annual revenue, or both). Venture capital firms or funds invest in these early-stage companies in exchange for equity, or an ownership stake, in the companies they invest in. Venture capitalists take on the risk of financing risky start-ups in the hopes that some of the firms they support will become successful. The start-ups are usually based on an innovative technology or business model and they are usually from the high technology industries, such as information technology (IT), clean technology or biotechnology.


      And from the Quantum Capital Partners page quoted above:

      Bünde, 17 May 2018 - Revell GmbH announces that, in the course of the restructuring proceedings under Chapter 11 of Hobbico Inc., the sale of Revell GmbH to a company of the international investment group Quantum Capital Partners (QCP) as sole new shareholder has been completed.

      Assets for the North American business operations were also part of the transaction, including trademarks and a large assortment of molds that are crucial for the plastic model making. The change of ownership will strengthen Revell through an expanded global footprint and a broader product portfolio.

      Fingers crossed....Revell is/has been one of the biggies in the model industry for decades.

      Thanks for response.👍

      Aha! An Investment group - I had already thought something like that.
      Hopefully that will be fine and they are not grasshoppers/locusts/corporate raiders.
      With such a thing I always have a bad feeling ...

      Guys,
      I couldn’t wait to order a beast.
      I purchase mine from Amazon.
      $135 shipped to my house from Germany
      In less than 12 days

      This thing is massive! I hope you all like painting wheels!!

      Is there a Buran in 1/144?

      Yes there is. By ARK-models from Russia. I'm still waiting for my Russian contact to have it.
      Ebay also have them for sale. For example this:

      https://www.ebay.com/itm/Buran-Soviet-Space-Shuttle-model-kit-1-144/163493264727?hash=item2610f53d57:g:b~YAAOSwXc9cP119:rk:1:pf:0

      But are there drawings of the construction how the Buran is attached to Antonov? Plenty of photos are available but I´d like have exact drawings

      Did the An-225 ever actually carry a Buran? I thought I remembered that the Buran was gone before the An-225 appeared.

      Great Thanks guys,
      I will probably order one of those Buran kits.
      In fact it will be kind of cool to compare it to the Revell Shuttle.

      Kusti, if you find the drawings for the Buran mounts please share them with me.

      Is any one here member of any of the Russian model digests? Those guys always have great information
      so I will guess someone has great Buran mounts pictures.

      Regards,
      Walter

      P.S. Great 225 walk around here;

      I don't have drawings or blueprints to show you, but here are the links which could be useful. Very informative photos here (pages 29-32) and a lot of information, drawings and blueprints here just need desire to dig out the necessary information.

      Yes indeed thanks very much for all the links.
      I read the entire Buran Energia site, amazing!!!

      I love the 225 as a cargo plan but I really think I am going for the shuttle transport
      version.

      Now the question is: Where to get decals for the Buran - An-225 version?

      Hi Uwe and others, Marco Coldewey has done this using Ascensio Decals.

      https://www.airlinercafe.com/photo_24606.details

      Only CCCP registration, the nose number(387) and Soviet flags to vertical stabilizers is needed to make "Buran" version. I think they are not a very big problem.

      But there is a bigger problem. At the moment (at least) I cannot open Ascensio website where to buy those "red stripes" The Google translator tells that the site is closed.
      And I haven't found any other place to order them.

      Of course you can paint those stripes but... you know the doors etc.

      Or let's wait that another decal maker (hopefully) makes them.

      Or I ask my friend(s) to do them
