Stupino Russia - 2018

  We took part at scale modelling competition in Stupino, Russia, upon invitation of our friends from SMC "Patriot" from Stupino, on 24th and 25th of August. Inevitably, before trip to Stupino we visited a few museums in Moscow. One of the most attractive to us, Museum of soviet people achievements, is, actually, a museum complex consisting of large number of individual museums. This complex exhibits peaces of Russian civil, military and space programs. So, one can find, standing next to each other, a Vostok rocket on its launcher, Sukhoi Su-27, Mi-8T and Yak-42. A bit further is Buran, Russian version of a space shuttle.
