Amodel 1/72 Kalinin K-5
K-5 - Soviet passenger plane, designed in 1929 in the design office Kalinin. Series production from 1930 in Kharkov. The aircraft with engines manufactured M-15, M-22, M-17. It used until 1943. Total built 260 aircraft.
Self-made screw, glass cockpit, wheels. Motor M-15 is made of a motor M-85 company Vector. The initial set of Amodel possessed large parts thick. By reducing the thickness to a desired received a lot of chips.
The plane K-5 belongs to squadron named after Maxim Gorky. The plane is the name of the literary magazine "Ogonyok". All planes squadron wore the names of newspapers and magazines. Earlier, I showed the plane PO-2 behalf of the newspaper "Komsomolskaya Pravda".
