  1. 1/72 ICM Tupolew Tu-2 "Moskwa"

    Roman, you are an indefatigable master! You had a lot of enthusiasm to take and make this model. I know this set, the Russians call such sets like "firewood". Thanks for posting.
  2. Good evening, gentlemen! It's my next model. Added engine from "Vektor" and navigation lights from "Elf". Gun burrels from needle, rear gun was update with Eduard burrel and handmade something.
  3. Hi! Welcome to Baku! We have some market with models, but its very expensive and poor choice. I buy all of things regarding to models online. My favorite shops - Hannants, Hobby_Link_Japan and just eBay.
  4. Good day, gentlemen. It's my next model from "What if?" series. Noteworthy is the fact that the basis for this aircraft was a promising plane Heinkel He-119 - my previous model. The Japanese bought three samples of this aircraft, they were able to collect only one. And then, by the same scheme, they developed their own aircraft, in which the motor shaft also passed through the cockpit of the pilots. The coloring scheme offered by Fine Molds I did not like. I developed my own version - based "on the motives". All designations, except for the digital code on the keel, are made using stencils.
  5. I mean - to whittle away plastic from inside the wing. In order for the edge of the wing or something else to be sharp.
  6. Hi, everybody! It's my next model. The kit is typical "shortrun", made like early "A-Model". Riveted, all edges sharpened, added some exterier details. Paint version and decal - just my fantasy. Markings on wing and keel made by stencils.
  7. Yes you are right. I did not allocate niches and chassis racks. Because they are sufficiently embossed and it seemed to me that their selection would be too contrasting.
  8. Academic decal is not decal - it's linoleum, no chemistry works on them. Therefore, I did not use large decals. But small as that else it is possible to use.
  9. Hi! Main markings made by stencils, but other just from box.
  10. Good day, gentlemen. It's my next model. Made riveting, all edges sharpened.
  11. Gentlemen, thank you very much for such kind comments. You inspire me to new work!
  12. Indeed, the plane was weak. But it was a scout plane, he was enough).
  13. Good day, gentlemen! This is my next model. The kit is typical "shortrun". Added metal masts, handrails, side steps, hooks, navigation lights, several interior details. Re-cut the paneling, riveted, grind all edges as usually.
  14. Thanks for interesting). It was at 1930th years, certainly after the civil war. And what about story - Pius XI Worried by the persecution of Christians in the Soviet Union, Pius XI mandated Berlin nuncio Eugenio Pacelli to work secretly on diplomatic arrangements between the Vatican and the Soviet Union. Pacelli negotiated food shipments for Russia, and met with Soviet representatives including Foreign Minister Georgi Chicherin, who rejected any kind of religious education, the ordination of priests and bishops, but offered agreements without the points vital to the Vatican. Despite Vatican pessimism and a lack of visible progress, Pacelli continued the secret negotiations, until Pius XI ordered them to be discontinued in 1927, because they generated no results and were dangerous to the Church, if made public. The "harsh persecution short of total annihilation of the clergy, monks, and nuns and other people associated with the Church," continued well into the 1930s. In addition to executing and exiling many clerics, monks and laymen, the confiscating of Church implements "for victims of famine" and the closing of churches were common. Yet according to an official report based on the Census of 1936, some 55 percent of Soviet citizens identified themselves openly as religious, while others possibly concealed their belief. Pius XI described the lack of reaction to the persecution of Christians in such countries as the Soviet Union, Mexico, Germany and Spain as a "conspiracy of silence". In, 1937 the Pope issued the encyclical Divini Redemptoris, which was a condemnation of Communism and the Soviet regime." He did name a French Jesuit to go to the USSR and consecrate in secret Roman Catholic bishops. It was a failure, as most of them ended up in gulags or were otherwise killed by the communist regime. The Soviet state apparatus decided to "reply" to the Pope thus).
