The time between first images and release date of the Zvezda A320 was nearly one year. So lets wait when we will have this beauty on our desk.

How much is the kit? I would like to add a few of these to my stash with numerous decals for. And will we be able to purchase it from a retailer in the USA? If so how soon?

Thank you

990 Rubles are about $25 US
So it will probably sell at about the same
price as the 767

I guess!

What an appalling translation - looks like a lovely kit, but I'll reserve judgement until Jennings has given the kit his seal-of-approval......

From the initial look of it, this could well be the best value-for-money out-of-the box injection-plastic 1/144 airliner kit thus far.

It looks like a cracker of a kit, but I'm reserving final judgement until I have a chance to give it a thorough going-over with a fine toothed comb.

And I'll warn everyone right here and right now - I *love* the Il-62, so I'm going to point out exactly what I see. If you think I'm being "nitpicky" or a "rivet counter" I'll warn you right now that I am when it comes to the Il-62, and not to read what I'm going to write if it makes your blood pressure go up.

Fair warning.

Add ROU 880.00 to that kit cost for global shipping and you're up to US$38.55. Still, it's probably the best deal available.
I ordered mine from another vendor and I'm paying the PAS cost PLUS shipping..about $10 more.

If you are going to buy one box, then yes. About 100 years as I do not buying items one (alone) at a time and this is wholly because of postage costs.

Bring it on........ That's just what I want! I rather like the Il-62 myself........ While you're at it, how about giving us your thoughts on the feasibility of making an earlier Kuznetsov powered Il-62 from this kit? If you do find just one thing out of spec on this kit, my guess is the passenger windows may be slightly oversized.

I flew a temporary replacement service for the Lot Il-62M fleet in 1987-88 with another -62........ A DC-8-62. How ironic is that?

Doing an NK-8 conversion *should* be pretty straightforward. The only substantial change is the engine nacelles. I've already asked Ivo about it, but he claims he's too busy to do the CAD work. He's under the impression that Small Stuff will do it, but the gentleman who does Small Stuff told me he's not that interested since he doesn't think there's a market for it. I disagree (obviously), and I'm going to keep hammering. There are LOTS of cool color schemes for NK-8 powered Il-62s.

I sent an order request to PAS yesterday for payment via Ebay. This morning I had a email stating the total price
with international shipping (basic) to the West Coast USA would US$51....A bit steep for my pocket book.

Hi all,

Just ordered 3 kits from Hobbyland in Bulgaria http://hobbylandbg.com/ and
the price was Euro 19.00 pr kit and the total postage from Bulgaria to Denmark
for a total of 5 kits was Euro 14.00.

If you register at the site first, you got a 5% discount as well. I have ordered
from them before without any problem.

Happy modelling,

Ruben

I picked one up drom the aviation megastore yesterday. I couldn't resist and took al major partsof thesprue, assembled the cockpit and h. stabilizer and can only agree with Ray that the kit is a gem. Very fine detail as you can see in the pictures above and the fit is terrific. According to the instructions the cockpit interior must be assembled completely first and then puton the nose wheel bay. There are no locator pins whatsoever on the inside of the fuselage, only two small gaps for the wheel bay. Nevertheless the cockpit fits beautifully in the fuslage halves without leaving any gaps. The only small drawbacks I can find thusfar are the sinkmarks for the locator pins on the fuselage and the cockpit window is a bit wider than it should be. But since it is quite soft plastic it is easily bended in the corrct position when assembled.

Looking forward to Ray's decals and can only emphasize that I am also very interested in NK-8 engines for an Aeroflot-KLM version. And also a mask for the cabin windows would be much appreciated

One slightly off topic question, how can I best assemble the cabin windows if I want to keep them open? What glue to use?

Watchmaker's cement is ideal if you can find it. Otherwise, in your part of the world, Humbrol Clearfix.

This is the Small Stuff answer because I asked him:
"
Hi Auke,
I am considering the NK-8 version, and probably will do it eventually. But first I am planning to do a detailing set for the M version.
Glad you liked the Tu-134 sets!

Best regards,

Eugeny Knupfer".

So lets wait and see !

Please! Everyone email Eugeny and urge him to do the NK-8 conversion! Many of the really interesting Il-62 schemes are the older NK-8 powered airplanes.

Second that Aeroflot-KLM version (I believe Revaro has that scheme right?), so I'm in for a NK-8 conversion as well.
