Very rare model plane of the Soviet Kalinin airplane. The first passenger airplane of Russia. Handmade.
Model is built of wood with metal parts and stands on a plexiglass asymmetrical base. Model can be removed from the pedestal, the propeller can rotate. 2 exhaust pipes that protrude just above the windscreens. Beautiful! On the pedestal is a brass plate with text. Model has minor damage, see photos. I expect a model that you will never encounter again.
The Kalinin K-2 was a Soviet aircraft designed and built by the designer Konstantin Kalinin. The aircraft was a variant of the predecessor K-1 with a more powerful engine and all-metal construction. The total weight of the structure significantly exceeded that of the planning. F.F. 1925, the first commercial flight took place in 1926. Only four were built.
