This is the 1:1 scale plane

Les Auld: More like 1/4 scale, thanks for the comment.
Great shot Les, it must weigh a bit if it needs three guys to carry it. I trust it can fly by radio control.
Les Auld: Flys very well and they seemed to be just throwing it around. Thanks for the comment.
Judging by the CCCP on the side I would guess this is a soviet cargo plane..perhaps an Ilyushin?
Les Auld: Definitely Russian Bill, thanks for the comment.

The tail formation indicates an Antonov. Whichever, it is taking a cheap flight using no fuel.
Les Auld: Well spotted Louis, thanks for the comment.
Enjoyable pic Les. Hell of a model!
Les Auld: Just one of sveral Ian, thanks for the comment.
