Seen here somewhere over the North Sea, (RAF photo) a nice close up of this remarkable Russian flyingboat.
When first reported, the US Government claimed that the Ruskies had copied another US design. But, acording to the Politburo the shoe is on the other foot! A statement in TASS stated, "If we copied this design, show the world this 'so called' production model used be the Amerikans?"

Model:              Revell Martin Seamaster
Modifications:    Main U/C doors glued to sides
Colour Scheme: The mix   1part Humbrol 221 (blue)
                                      1part Revell    55 (lt. green)
                                      2~4parts Humbrol 127 (satin lt. grey) Uppersurfaces.
                                      127 Lt Grey undersurfaces.

Hey, cool! :wub:

Definitly looks like a Beriev, too!

But you need a different designator. Be-10 ('Madge') was a radial-powered bird!

Wouldn't this more likely be a Be-12B?

On my latest Unicraft consignment there was a picture of the box art for the BE-10 on the side of one of the boxes - should mean it's near release

Do not condemn the judgement of another because it differs from your own. You may both be wrong.

It's funny but the reason I chose the title Be-10b, was 'cause it was the only 'jet' powered flying-boat in the series. The Be-6 is a piston engine (Russian Mariner) the Be-8 looks as if it should be in Pan Am markings and the 12 is a turboprop.
The other reason is that seeing it is from 'an era' of around 1959 I couldn't call it, say Be-35, it just wouldn't be right!

That's what I get for going by memory, I thought it was the Be-12 that was the jet bird.  "Oops!" *Blush*

And I thought the Be-10 was the radial bird - sorry!  :blink:
