Hello fellow iModelers,

I am usurping the front page just one more time with this topic, to show you the finished featuring the big Tu-22m3, now in her natural habitat. I am very proud and thankful that she was selected for the Best in Show in January and is now presented on a fitting base. You can read and see more following this link :

  1. Outstanding result, sir...stellar workmanship all around.

  2. As Craig stated, Simply Outstanding work! Museum quality.

  3. A beautiful finish to an amazing project - I am in awe!

  4. I agree: unbelievable work! Congratulations!

  5. Thank you, all! Your nice words and all the support throughout the build was much appreciated (and needed)!

  6. Terrific modelling and great looking diorama. Must be a monster of a model, hope it will be kept in a glass box so you don´t have to dust it.

  7. Technically, this is without peer. I am aware of just how difficult those ‘ladders’ are to construct, never mind reaching these heady levels of realism. The Work in Progress was a joy to follow. A masterclass in technical skill, patience, and attention to detail.

    Superb, Aleks. In every detail.

      David my friend, you want to get me all hoity-toity or what? 😀

      You are right about those service ladders BTW – they are one mighty challenging piece of photo-etching! Hands down the hardest part of this build, but such a focal point as well. And now I need to figure out how to pack them (and the rest) securely for the show...


  8. Awesome! Great work!

  9. This is a fantastic build! Well done sir!
