They're listing it as the Tu-144D, which was the later version with better engines.

OK, it's very difficult to see the canards in that piccie they have though...........
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

There are some things you would never ever expect to see by a mainstream manufacturer and this comes along  :o Rekindles your faith in human enterprise  ;D

Mind you I suppose from ICM's point of view Austria-Hungary was very important on the WWI Eastern Front so local builders ?

Thing is, if we think WWI Austro-Hungarian models are rare, imagine what it must be like for people from the former Empire who want to model it.  Must be hell for them, seeing endless UK/US/German/Russian/etc., stuff rolling out of the moulds and virtually nothing about their own history.  It is good to see something different for a change.  A lot of that can, of course be used for Germans in WWII.

Your right mate. There have been Austro-Hungarian built aircraft from WWI in both 1/72 and 1/48 and now we are starting to see some Eastern European built armour in 1/35 like the Toldi and it's siblings. All good news for modellers everywhere

Hannants have these in their sale at 14 each, which seems good for 1/35th scale:

I've been wanting them to release Soviet unguided rockets for some time.  Now they have!   :party:

I'm pretty sure you can build a stock T coupe from one of the the two AMT Model T double kits.  But they're 1/25.
There are plenty of non stock versions available.
