DT Custom Models - Tu-204s
Updated: May 2023
In this review I take a closer look at DT Customs Tupolev Tu-204s.

Panda Models has a decent 400 scale mould for the Tupolev Tu-204 and is the only brand to have made Aeroflot versions wearing the classic cheatlines. Releases of Russian passenger airlines using the Tu-204 moulds has been limited to date and not many actually wore the Aeroflot style cheatlines but with a little creative license I asked DT Customs to attempt Perm Airlines and Dalavia.
Both of these airlines are now defunct and operated the Tu-204 at different times and used slightly different variants too.
Check out the following video for more on this pair of customs:
Technically the Perm Airlines scheme used a slightly darker cheatline than the original Aeroflot colours, but considering the unlikelihood that anyone will ever release it in 400 scale that was a trade-off I was more than willing to accept.
