I think that the dirt and the engine smoke are not suitable for a desktop model. It may look better on an airport diorama. And it is a mistake when you choose to make effects like that not to paint the model with mat colors!!!
But apart all the previous model junkie bu..""**it your model is great!!!
Well done!!!
What brand is this model? (e.g. Hasegawa, Trumpet, etc).

Its a Tu-154 not Tu-134--I assume its just a typo.

It`s the Eastern Express modelkit or the former Tupolev kit, made by Tupolev in 1998. Easy to get on eBay but very hard work. The parts don`t fit that well, but as pictured above, you can do a nice model. If you like an undercarriage, there isn`t one included with the kit, use the on of the Airfix 1/300 scale B777-200.

I actually find that the smoke stains on the back make it look REALLY good. Nice job!

I remember when my friend built one of those. He told me the decals were actually one big decal you had to cut up in smaller pieces. O well, I'm happy with the 1/100 Tu-154 I have...
