The unmistakable shape of the Topol-M missile on its mobile launcher is seen here at Omsk correctional facility number six. 

It was made out of snow over 15 days by seven inmates. 

The details were as accurate as possible, though it is slightly smaller than the real thing.

The snow copy is 13.5 meters long, 3.5 meters wide and more than 3.5 meters high, said the press department of Russian Federal Penitentiary Service in Omsk region. 

The prison colony in Omsk last year built a copy of the Aurora cruiser, famous for its role in the 1917 Russian  Revolution.
