Bell P-39 Airacobra 1941. The Bell P-39 Airacobra was one of the most important American fighters in service when the United States entered World War II. The P-39 was used by the Soviet Air Force and enabled individual Soviet pilots to collect the highest number of “kills” attributed to an American fighter flown by a pilot in conflict. Other significant users of this type included the Free French, Royal Air Force, United States Air Force, and Italian Co-warring Air Force. Designed by Bell Aircraft, it had an innovative layout, with the engine installed in the center of the fuselage behind the pilot. The propeller was driven by a long tractor shaft. It was also the first hunter to be equipped with a tricycle undercarriage. Doors can open and the propeller and wheels can turn. The wheels are strong and the plane can stand without a stand. Entirely made of metal by hand! Propeller is also metal and mounted on brass shaft with brass nut.

Very large and big handmade model of the Convair B-36 Peacemaker plane, made of aluminium. Probably made in the Soviet Union during the Cold War era.
The Convair B-36 Peacemaker was a strategic bomber.It was the largest propeller-driven aircraft to be mass-produced and also the largest bomber ever built. The B-36’s origins date back to early 1941, before America’s participation in World War II.At that time, the likelihood that the United Kingdom would be occupied by Germany was very real.This would make any US bombing of Germany impossible, leading to demand for a bomber with a transatlantic range.
