The north-west of Russia is rich in a particular kind of works of folk art, the Wooden Churches. The most famous of these is located in the historical site of Kizhi island, dating from the 17th century and is rated the world's eighth wonder and included on the UNESCO World Heritage List.


It is said that “During World War II, a Finnish pilot refused to obey an order to bomb Kizhi Island. He was in awe of the unusual architecture of the wooden churches and couldn’t bring himself to carry out the mission.”.


This model represents a wooden church, such as the ones we can find on Kizhi Island, featuring an octagonal tower with arches and an onion dome, and is definitely one of our finest looking models and one very rich in detail.


This model is a 28mm scale model, laser cut on 2mm and 3mm MDF, with laser etched detail. Comes unpainted and unassembled and features approximately 316cm² of total area (including base board).
