For modeling inspriration

This is my uncle's work in 1:72. It's a Russian Pe 8 bomber. There are over a thousand parts and most are hand made.

It is a famous bomber.

Pe-8 bombed Berlin in August 1941 (at first Germans were sure that the British did it)
It was the first Allies bomber that carried 5-ton bomb (attack on Konigsberg in April 1943)
On this plane Soviet Foreign Minister Vyacheslav Molotov travelled from Moscow to the Great Britain and United States in 1942 just over the occupied Europe.

After the war they were used on the Far North, in Arctic, on the "civilian" service.

That is pretty damned impressive. That looks like it could go on display in a museum.

Can't you nudge your uncle to try something in 1:120 preferably something train like and to the very same high quality. Seriously though that is very good model

Bloody hell! I just realised the last 3 photo's were the same model. At first glance I thought that was a photo of the real thing in a misty field. I am even more impressed now

He's actually the one that got me into trains. But, trains are #3 on his list of priorities behind tanks and airplanes.

It's very pity that tank and airplane modellers use other scales - 1:35, 1:72, 1:144...

However, there are some tank models (Russian and German) in TT, but very few airplanes.
