Friends, colleagues, Hello.

Here's another model from Trumpeter on a 1/72 scale. This model aircraft Tupolev-22M2, Russian missile carrier bomber. Now they are not built. The model had a lot to modify and replace. For example, I replaced the engines with additions from Amigo-models. Set resin pilot's seat from NeOmega. The model is made in a variant of the bomber. 36 on the external load of bombs inside the bomb Bay 33 bombs. Much has been added to the interiors of the cabins. Wings, stabilizer and gun movable. The wheels are from Equipage. The color of the paint mixed yourself. That's all in short.

  1. Great job, Dmitry. There are 4 tail cannons? Looks like 2 double barreled shot guns.

  2. Gorgeous work Dmitry! It must be a huge model! I love it.

    Admirable work with all the details – too much done to mention it all, I know. 😉

  7. I like the bird and the work, especially the very subtle streaking effect.

  8. Jeff, Aleksandar, Stéphane, Thank you!

  9. A really beautiful model - as usual I love your attention to detail. Just looking at the weathering of each of the bombs is a reminder of how much all the small details add up to a beautifully rendered replica.

  10. Fantastic build. Dmitry. I also really like the effect of your paintwork and the detail. She’s an elegant craft and you have captured her well.
