This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.

The Petlyakov Pe-8, also known as TB-7 was a Soviet heavy bomber aircraft of World War II, the only four-engined bomber the USSR built during the war.

Development of Pe-8 was initiated in the Tupolev's OKB as ANT-42 in July 1934. The maiden flight of the first prototype was in December 1936 by M.M.Gromov. The aircraft actually has five engines - an auxiliary M-100 ATsN-2 was fitted inside the airframe. This drove a supercharger to supply pressurised air to the main engines.

The Pe-8's most important claim to fame is flying Soviet foreign minister Molotov and his delegation from Moscow to London and Washington DC and back for talks on the opening of a second front against Nazi Germany (May 19th-Jun 13th, 1942), on the return trip crossing German-controlled airspace without incident.

This kit includes:
  • 335 parts
  • 1 decal for Soviet Air Force
  • 7 figures (Stalin, Molotov, Beria & 4 pilots)
