Greetings, colleagues! 
I present another homemade model from the range of experimental screen-planes of Alekseyev design. 
Painted with GSI Mr.Color urethane acrylic, Tamiya lacquer, + simple pencil.
Pleasant viewing.

That's lovely, really well constructed and finished. What did you use to build it?

Alan P, Thank you!

Used all sorts of model plastics and sprues...

Wow! What a strange looking machine!

Never knew that existed. I thought it was a what if kit bash until I saw that b&w photo. 

What a crazy craft!

Martin, Thank you!

Yes, such a machine existed and flew very well. )

It looks like the thing Luke Skywalker had in Star Wars. I wonder how good it was at avoiding obstacles - bushes, fences, livestock or boats if it was only used over water.

Does anyone know the purpose of that 'comb-like' devices ahead of the wing? Could they eject air at high speed to enhance lift when starting off?

John R, Thank you!

The screen glider could fly over any surface: snow, earth and water. It needed space, so it could not go around obstacles sharply, it was designed for fast, direct travel.
The comb-over devices in front of the wings are the air jets blowing under the wing. There was another engine in the nose for blowing air. In the stern (garrotte) was a marching engine.
