I admit that I have a thing about aircraft with spats but I found some that have simply crazy huge spats, they were real, and there are 1/72 scale models of them! I looked at a few of these behemoths here link

But you have to go Soviet to find true lunacy;

I hope you've got a bigger house now if you're going to get a 1/72 K-7.

I think you meant:

But you have to go Soviet to find true beauty.

Fake News. Wiki says the real K-7 armed with 3 20mm and 8 7.62 MGs. No such animal as a beast armed with naval cannon turrets!

Imagine the structure you'd need to withstand the weight of those turrets.

Let alone the recoil.

It's a nice pulpy-steampunky idea, but it isn't true.

Too much is not enough

Too much is a good place to start,

It has been my motto for years (well, decades now) and has never failed to get me into trouble ;)

You will note that the Kalinin K7 is a tad smaller then the version shown in the image, specifically that it has only 3 engines per side, not the four shown. There was only one prototype that crashed during testing, so this photo is most certainly a fake plane.

The photo might still be real, but then this is a restaurant or museum built like a plane, not a real plane :-)
