    [Soviet/Russian] Antonov An-14 -- Build Thread

    And here we are able to see the aircraft with both engines installed on the main wing. I'm about to attach the tail section to the fuselage. At this point, I would say I'm about two-thirds the way done. After this attachment, I have to do the landing gear, the winglets and struts, and some...

    The completed tail section! If you notice it looks like a mini Tie Fighter without the center sphere. This arrangement of the elevator and rudder section is a common design motif on the Antonov design bureau's aircraft. For instance, the Antonov An-225 Mriya, one of the world's largest aircraft...

    And now the left rudder is being attached. Pretty much the same procedure. A lot of internal tabbing, patience, and thinking ahead!

    Here I've attached the right rudder onto the elevators. The right rudder had been partially assembled with internal tabs to facilitate gluing.

    The three pieces that will make up the tail. The two rudders and the elevators of the aircraft. Again, it is a matter of using internal tabbing to attach the requisite pieces together and to help attach the ''wings'' trailing edges together.

    Time for another update. Here is the right ''engine'' fully assembled, ready to be installed and glued onto the main wing. This one was easy to do after assembling the other one. Once I figured out the assembly process, it was a simple task of putting the pieces together.

    Russian ''Museum'' Site for FREE models

    When talking to @zathros this site came up as a resource for FREE card models: http://www.jt-museum.narod.ru/index.htm It has several models of aircraft, ground vehicles, and water ships. There are also historical spacecraft models there too. The models date from, I'd guess from the 1970s to...

    The ''engine'' partially installed into the cowling. This is the fruits of my labor after about 3 attempts. I had to figure out how to assemble everything and how to form the parts so that they would fit together. The next step will be finish the bottom half of this cowling, then build the right...
