1/144 Alexeyev KM Ekranoplan - Anigrand

Alexeyev KM Ekranoplan "Caspian sea monster"

The Ekranpolans were albiet very large (550 Tons) deomonstrators of the "Wing In Ground Effect" principle, neither a boat, nor a plane, They were designed to skim across lakes and potentially larger bodies of water(?) at very high speeds.

This should be some size!
It is meant to be between 90-100m long and upto 30m at its widest, in 1/144 that is in the region on 700 x 200mm!

I would expect bonus items, certianly there are numerous WIG aircraft that could be incoprorated....

Available: July 2011
Price: tbc

It has been speculated for many years that if anyone was to build this, it would be Anigrand. It would appear they have now done so!
