Tu-204 Model

Tue Apr 08, 2003 10:03 pm

I`m looking for a Tu-204 model, scale 1/50 or 1/100. Saw one in an office with Aeroflot colours. Any help would be great.

You can contact this site and ask them if they have any.
They specialise in 1:50/1:100 models.

yea, I saw one of those too. How come they had it in Aeroflot colors when Aeroflot doesn't use them? hey Newswissair you never emailed me for my VEB Plasticart question.

Aeroflot has never had any Tu-204 in service. The pictures with Aeroflot Tu-204 are only the prototypes with that livery. During the USSR every prototype airliner got the Aeroflot colours. The Tu-204 is from the 80`s.

Aeroflot never actually used the Tu-204 in revenue service. It was painted in Aeroflot livery as part of the certification and promotion process.

Newswissair....I am trying to source one for you at the moment.

yea, I saw this Tu-204 in a magazine with huge Aeroflot titles going down the length of the whole fuselage and the whole tail painted in the russian flag. It was a test aircraft.
