Don't you think these two projects should have another good look by the designers? For the An-24, if a FSX native exterior model is available at some point, it would be easy to "attach" the Tim Conrad's An-32 VC (below) which is marvelous... So SCS could focus on the outside, and the pressure to build the VC would go away... (Is Dimitri reading this forum?)
More An-24 pics here:

Where did you find this Dornier? Freeware of Payware?
personally, I love samdims work, just wish he would redo the TU-124 for fsx with a vc..
Ooh...for a native FSX Samdim Tupolev Bear.

This is certainly not a russian airliner, but it's a FSX native, classic soviet-era aircraft. So maybe this fits more or less in this thread... The famous Kamov trademark, the contra-rotative double-rotor, is wonderfully designed and animated.

Anybody knows why most (if not all) soviet aircrafts have their cockpit painted in this light blue color? Less reflection in daytime? More visibility at night? Too much blue paint laying around at the factory?

I guess the VC is intended for a payware version. Let's hope the external model could be released as a freeware, then we'll be able to attach the default Bombardier CRJ 700 VC. More pics here: http://samdimdesign.free.fr/
While I didn't opt for the Ka-27/32 pictured here (don't care for the look of the VC), I do have the same organization's Ka-50 "Black Shark". It's a pretty nice addon!
Regarding the cockpit colors, you'll see light blue, greens, and blacks in various cockpits.
About the blues and greens, it is my understanding that research was done that concluded that those colors were psychologically helpful (soothing, relaxing, etc). I've also heard that the colors are cheaper to produce/use.
Also remember that some Douglas DC-9 aircraft employed green(ish) cockpits as well. A few examples:

There is an Antonov An-28 for FSX in the works somewhere... A Czech developper? Anybody has more informations?

A true FSX native but not a real Russian Airliner... Freeware Project Open Sky's Boeing 777 with Tom Collins, Kyle Schurb and Dhruv Kalra Aeroflot repaint (tkd_afl_b772v11.zip at avsim). VC swap with payware Captain Sim Boeing 757 (here the free demo version, with missing gauge and dead yokes). This is just for fun and to keep this thread going...
