PROJECT OF ROMAN KOROLEV
Project «Metallistika» creates a copy of the most perfect delicate metal constructes in Russia, lines and designs of hyperboloid towers systems of engineer Shukhov, as well as stylized model rockets, and airships. Exact copies are meticulously recreated from designs.
My name is Roman Korolev, I’m from Nizhny Novgorod. Since 2014, I have been interested in «Metallistika».
I’m constructing models of Shukhov towers, power lines , rockets and airships (stylized copies, close to the original), in general, what fits my way of modeling and what I am involved in.
One day, Shukhov came into his office while the maid was cleaning. She took a potted ficus from the windowsill and placed it on the overturned wastebasket. In the tangle of willow vines, Shukhov saw the future mesh shell.
