1/144 Tupolev TB-3-4M-17F / G-2 by Mars Models

1/144 Tupolev TB-3-4M-17F / G-2   by Mars Models
he Tupolev TB-3 (Russian: Тяжёлый Бомбардировщик, Tyazholy Bombardirovschik, Heavy Bomber, civilian designation ANT-6) was a heavy bomber aircraft which was deployed by the Soviet Air Force in the 1930s and during World War II. It was the world's first cantilever wing four-engine heavy bomber.[2] Despite obsolescence and being officially withdrawn from service in 1939, the TB-3 performed bomber and transport duties throughout much of World War II. The TB-3 also saw combat as a Zveno project fighter mothership and as a light tank transport.

Mars Models is a new company to 1/144 with an interesting starter with this early soviet bomber, they also have other 1/72 kits that would look great in 1/144.

NOTE - this is not two kits, it allows option for two variants (only one kit can be built!!)


It should be easier and (hopefully)  cheaper than the Anigrand version
