Just ordered three of the Mirage 4000's. One may be real world that I saw at Farnbourgh if I can resist the WHIF Force, not sure about the others, might do a two seater but more likely Saudi, Moroccan, Australian, Austrian, Swiss? Maybe even a French in service one? Oh forgot Brazil!

Modelsvit have been asking people via their Facebook page, if they should make a 1/72nd scale AN-225, and what sort of price would people expect to pay for one, so who knows, they might just make one.

That would be ENORMOUS! And very expensive no doubt.

But I still like the idea.  ;D
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! :)

I would be interested to see one done, not something I could own let alone build, in my current situation, but I think I could come up with a few what if ideas for one.
Three giant daisy cutters in the hold and one under each wing, for a bit of terra forming :wacko:

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Modelsvit have announced that they are going to produce the AN-225 in 1-72nd scale, no idea on cost as yet, but I dare say it will be dear.
