Grigorovich M-20

September 5, 2016 · in Aviation · · 12 · 2.3K

Because I created a set Grigorovich M-5, which was written here, it's time to make a model of Grigorovich M-20.

Essentially boat M 20 - M is a modification of the boat-5, but with the engine Le Rhone. The rest of the visual differences on the little things: the shape and location of the oil tank is mounted under-wing floats, no braces couples.

Painting my model has no historical prototype, and is a collective image of M-20 on skis from the 2nd reconnaissance detachment in Arkhangelsk, markings made by a photo of the M-20 "Russian Paints Aviation Volume 3".

  1. Egad...that rigging and those accompanying turnbuckles must have accounted for at least 90% of your man-hours in this project. It certainly is a stunner, though...regardless of what scale it is. My hat's off to you, sir.

  2. Ah, well, gee, WOW!

  3. ... I am speechless and flabbergasted. Meticulous workmanship and detailing. All materials & details - delicious. I think you have created a quality standard beyond Museum Quality => Pavel Quality!
    You have to tell us mere mortals some basic rigging tips? Do I need prescription drugs to loose my nerves & keep my sanity?
    Thank you for sharing your beautiful works.
