Kalinin K-5 1\72 Amodel

Recommended Posts

The K-5 aircraft were the basis of the USSR's civilian passenger fleet in the 1930s. Sometimes they were used as agitation, sanitary, transport or even military transport. This USSR L-607 was mobilized in 1939. This machine was used during the Soviet-Finnish conflict to transport ammunition and evacuate the wounded. During the service in the VVS RKKA over the civilian registration numbers were painted red stars.

Another great build, Max. :).

 

model producers like A Model have to be applauded for producing such kits. While the subjects a not of my interest, they are certainly appealing and balance the western domination of types popularly built.

Since the image of the aircraft engine (M-17) and a certain color scheme, it is a variant of 1939-1941.

Thank you.

BTW - how extensive was your conversion? I guess that you've made engine but also sides of fuselage. is it?

cheers
