Bonus Kits:

Its been a little a while since we heard much from Anigrand, but oh boy! are they back with a vengence.
This aircraft is a very interesting items and it did reach prototype stage, but did not enter final produciton due to a fatal crash and technical issues (It might also have been rubbish?)

These were still early days in aviation and aero engine technology, so aircraft never often never quite worked in the metal as they did on the drawing board?

Span 447 mm x Length 402 mm

Of the bonus aircraft- the middle one is also a Kalinin design, the Kalinin 2. The other on the right is a Moskalev Sigma series design called Sam-7.

Thanks Russ.

Quickie correction, the twin engine middle plane lists as a Kalini 12 in most sources. There are some calling it Kalinin 2, but the Kalinin 12 is about 2 to 1.

I wonder why the K 7 was picked instead of the Maxim Gorky?

Maybe the Tupolev ANT-20 "maxim gorky" is a future option?

perhaps, you should email arnold and ask/suggest?
