Tu-16(Xian H-6) building advices
I am planning, together with a friend of mine to build a Tupolev Tu-16, about 1,6-1,7 meters in length. Are there any plans, 3D-view drawings available? Will 2 64mm EDFs be enough as power supply? What are your suggestions regarding the building techniques and materials to be used? Thank you,

You can start here. Just start doing searches.

This is how I would approach the project.
I would use the largest EDF which would fit. The attachment shows a section at the nacelle centre. A 90mm EDF would scale to 1.8 metre fuselage length. An underside intake would avoid any interference with the wing structure.
I would take an experimental approach. An overweight prototype incapable of flight is not a basis for development. So I would start with a superlight lash-up hand-launched prototype.
Good quality balsa wing........simplified depron box fuselage.........no non-essential details........
Ailerons should not be necessary [I'm assuming no crazy flying].
When the first prototype is flying, you will then know how much weight can be added for a more-accurate version.
