Zvezda 1/144 Tu-160 Blackjack: Great kit!
Both only needed minimal filling and sanding. After attaching the upper and lower fuselage sections, I had several places all around the seams that needed quite a bit of filler and sanding. My sample was missing a few parts, two of the main wheels, the instrument panel coaming and two of the parts for the bar on the front landing gear for the anti-FOD. These can be positioned in one of three ways, with all the appropriate glove pieces provided for the different positions. This is a very well detailed kit of a much needed subject in this scale. I used Testors Glosscote for my clear coat. Molded in light gray the parts are very crisp with minimal flash.

By Chris Banyai-Riepl Overview In the mids, with surface to air missile technology rendering subsonic bombers obsolete, attention turned towards supersonic bombers. In , the full-scale development of what would become the Tu began at the Tupolev design bureau. Based on TsAGI proposals for a multi-mode aircraft, the Tu combined the capabilities of the Tu with the variable geometry outer wing system of the TuM and the supersonic aerodynamics developed on the Tu The result was a large and powerful supersonic bomber with immense capabilities.
The configuration features a high aspect-ratio wing, four engines in two pods underneath the fixed wing section, and all-moving tailplanes. All weaponry is stowed internally in two large bays equipped with rotary launchers, each capable of holding six Kh cruise missiles. The first flight of the prototype Tu took to the air on December 18, , and after several years of flight testing, the aircraft entered operational service in Currently there are only 20 Tus operational in Russia, out of 33 manufactured.
The kit is nicely molded in medium gray plastic, with petite recessed panel lines throughout. The small decal sheet provides markings for three Tus, all with names on the nose. There is a separate instrument panel, seats, and control stick.
This fits onto the lower fuselage piece. It is with the fuselage that the most complex assembly shows up, with six main pieces to make up the core fuselage assembly, not counting the clear parts.
SLEAZY CDC CAMPAIGN MISSTATES RISK OF AIDS Remember those TV ads featuring the Baptist minister's son, who said, "If I can get AIDS, anyone can". Our girls Israeli, European and Australian rare. dropped subtle hints to someone whom you likedlovedwanted, hoping that they would pick up on it. It wil I39;m well-groomed and lustful, attentive and seductive, but the imp in my flesh every moment to break out risk.
Frankly, took out all the mud. Yet the same year, the nation's public health officials embarked on a deliberate public-relations campaign to mislead the American people into thinking that AIDS was spreading inexorably into the mainstream. 333.
A product at the height of the Cold War, it could deliver a nuclear payload literally anywhere around the globe. Plagued by financial issues, the small force flies very infrequently and training is sparse. Upgrades have given the TU a very effective conventional capability.
Molded in light gray the parts are very crisp with minimal flash. Detail is finely engraved. There are many options that can be incorporated into the model with the provided parts. Open or closed bomb bays with full KH cruise missile weapons, open or closed refueling probe and extended or retracted landing gear. The wings are not moveable but can be in one of three positions, full sweep, mid sweep and full extension.
Parts are included for the folding wing fence. Decals are colorful and right on register. Unfortunately the instruction sheet is mostly in Russian. There are Testors Model Master paint numbers given. But a lot of the descriptions of parts and directions will take a bit of interpretation.
The decal placement drawings are very basic and incomplete. Construction begins with a simplified cockpit. Very little of this will be able to be seen though the tiny windows. At this scale, you could just black out the glass and it would still look good. The bottom fuselage and the upper rear fuselage go together well with minimal gaps and filling. The stinger tail has a top and bottom also and fits well. The upper forward fuselage that goes around the cockpit does not fit well at all.
It is a two part affair that is too wide at the bottom edge and does not fit clean with the upper fuselage. Panel lines also do not match up. I think that Zvezda would have been better off doing a complete top and bottom fuselage. To put nose weight in, you have to make a lower bulkhead from sheet styrene.
