Your reliable Aircraft Modelling Source since 1989
Mind: this is a modelling kit.
Together with Antonov, Metal Time supports Ukrainian aviation rebuilding programs, including:
- the restoration of the AN-225 Mriya aircraft;
- training of new pilots and aircraft engineers;
- the restoration of houses of Antonov employees, destroyed during the war.
In 1988, Antonov Aviation built the world's largest cargo aircraft, the AN-225, named Mriya (translated from Ukrainian, means Dream) and landed it at the Gostomel airport, in Kyiv, Ukraine.
Its specifications were astonishing: it was 275 feet long, 288 feet wide and 59 feet tall. To understand just how enormous Mriya was imagine a six-story house with four entrances. The Mriya weighed 350 tons (700,000 lbs.) and could lift another 250 tons (500,000 lbs.). This was an absolute record. Mriya was a beast. No plane on earth could come close to that much carrying capacity. For example, Mriya could transport a herd of 42 elephants, or more than 1.8 million iPhones.
Over the years, the Mriya AN-225, has transported giraffes, yachts, parts of power plants and other large items other planes could not transport. Mriya carried the first Soviet "Shuttle" called "Buran" made its longest flight. After a short flight into space, the Buran remained grounded, but the Mriya would continue to soar!
Such an amazing feat of engineering has rarely been seen on earth. Each takeoff and landing of the Mriya became spectacle, attracting the press and people from all over the world.
You can destroy a plane, but you can't kill a Dream. One day Mriya will fly again.
In addition to all necessary parts for assembly, the set includes the limited-edition Mriya the Dream" postage stamp. Along with the Stamp, is a certificate of appreciation and support from Antonov Aviation, documenting your support of Mriya, and the aviation rebuilding programs.
Like all Metal Time prefabricated construction sets, the Ukrainian Dream model is made of the highest-quality, eco-friendly stainless steel, which has been approved for the production of consumer goods and toys.
Precise laser cutting of the set eliminates the possibility of cuts during the assembly process.
Made from brushed and polished stainless steel, our models stand apart from traditional models, made from plastic or wood.
The Ukrainian Dream — is not just a do-it-yourself model or a beautiful souvenir. This is a monument, dedicated to engineers and workers of Antonov Aviation, who created this engineering marvel. Considering that there was only 1 AN-225 ever built, this model is allows us to let Mriya to live on, while we await its return.
Building our models will not only bring you hours of enjoyment, but they will also teach you about unique icons of history.
"Metal Time" models are not only for your own enjoyment, but they also make excellent gifts. And look great in your home or office.
All parts are separated and connected with light finger pressure, which eliminates possible cuts or pricks during the assembly process.
The Metal Time kits comprises small parts that, under particular conditions, may be hazardous to children under the age of 14 years. If children are to carry out the model assembly, parents' supervision should be ensured.
