This is my Airbus A-400 Mini built from the 1:144 Revell kit, in September 2018.

I painted it with Humbrol paints. I first wanted the cockpit in the Osprey wing bearing construction, for landings with the rotors vertical, they were but barely, so I changed the concept into the resulting one. Because of the 1:72 scale of the Osprey wing, engines and rotors the hull scale became also 1:72, so in reality it would be half as big as the original A-400.

I made one mistake: I split up one of the rear cargo doors but thatís not necessary.

With kind regards from M.A.D.
