Thanks gentlemen! I had it roughly assembled with tape and boy, it is huge!

Although I imagined it to be big even before I started. It's getting slightly bigger then I expected. But hey that a great thing as per true Poetin style, it's got to be slightly bigger then the competition...

I'm pleased with the soviet looks and think It'll be even more soviet looking with the wings, booms and tailplane raised, rear turrets, twin props per engine (hell why not?!)and soviet style wheels.

McColm, the fuselage are two AN-12 fuselages back to back....

Would the grey/silver soviet scheme fit this baby or an Aeroflot scheme with the blue cheatline? As i come to think of it lots dodgy cargo liners use/used the An-12.....anybody any suggestions? I usually don't built civilian stuff...

Jeepers, that's HUGE!  :o :thumbsup: :bow:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

I love this twin-boom airliner, I order immediately one million copies for the airline I own (alas in my dreams only) :-\ ;D
Do you know how to pronounce/translate the Cyrillic-letters title? written "большое торговое судно", pronounced "bol'shoye torgovoye sudno", 3 words meaning "big trade ship".
[the word "realistic" hurts my heart...]

Super-Freighter?

Love it, whatever name it's given.

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