Soviet Shuttle Buran 1/144
« on: June 12, 2019, 11:38:46 AM »
So, very off topic here and something that took me over a year of very off and on building, it's a 1/144 vignette of the Soviet Buran landing after its one and only flight in 1988 along with the Mig-25 chase plane.  The Buran is a resin kit by Anigrand with the rudder split and the elevons repositioned. Covered in decals made from online three views and heavily weathered. It was pretty filthy when it returned from orbit.  The Mig is the AMT kit with a RetroKits 2-seat resin conversion. I replaced the main landing gear with metal rod to get the landing angle.

Very cool! I love the motion of this scene. The Buran is great build and weathered. The Mig is the cherry on top.

Great work Drew, it's not often you see the Buran or her sister ship modeled.
