Looking for some specific information on just how the An-124 fuselage was 'stretched' to create the An-225. Something more than "Fuselage extended by plusg ahead of and behind wing"(Gunston, 'The Osprey encyclopedia of Russian Aircraft) or "fuselage is based on the An-124 but....length increased by 7 meters" (Gordon and Komissarov, 'Antonov's Heavy Transports').
Drawings would be really nice. Other references would be nice. Does no one write about Antonov? Hope to stretch a RofG 1/144 An-124, if possible.

Thanks, all.

go there and compare, may be something will be of use
AFAIK An-225 drawings are simplified print-outs of original ANTK CAD

Thank you, Gregory, I do have both those. I have already enlarged the An-225 to 1/144 in anticipation of starting work.
