Developed at the time for transporting the "Buran", the "Mriya" is now presented in its original Soviet color scheme in a set with the orbiter vehicle. Their first public appearance in the west took place in 1989 at the Paris Air Show in Le Bourget.

Only wished this was in 1:200 scale, then it would interest me.

As always with Herpa, this is neat, even at 1/500. The An-225 is definitely full metal - it's so heavy. Buran must be plastic.
In an ideal world, I would have liked a support stand.
And it's a pity Herpa do not produce more space and space-related models. Now we need a Buran-Energyia stack. Dragon (or Herpa) if you're reading this...
