I know there are some 1/288 kits of the smaller Antonov aircraft, and have seen a 1/300 Luftwaffe '46 C-130 on eBay (but not on their site for some reason, is it OOP?).

Curious if there are any kits out there for, say, the C-141, C-130, AN-12 or IL-76? Figure Shapeways will likely be the only option, any recommendations there?

not seen any of those in plastic or diecast in 1/285 or 1/300th, maybe on shapeways, will be hard to get the right finish though with all those lines!

Armaments in Miniature do some here:
I have some of his 1/100 stuff and the quality is excellent. Only punitive customs duty in the UK stops me buying his 6mm stuff. I wish he had a UK outlet.

Check Heroics & Ros website for the C-130. I know they make them as I recently bought a pair of them. They may have some of the others as well.

Oh wow! Thanks for that! Completely forgot to check AIM, have some of their 15mm WWII stuff and it is top notch!


Will keep H&R in mind as well, may be ordering some WWII aircraft from them at some point.
