I-5 aircraft model 1/73. Fighter. The USSR 1929-1942. Vintage. Mini old plane. Airplane. Plane model. Aircraft.
First flight - April 30, 1929. Was in service from 1931 to 1942. A total of 816 cars were built
The fighter was armed with two Soviet-made PV-1 synchronous machine guns with 1200 rounds of ammunition.
When installing underwing bomb racks, the I-5 fighter could carry up to 40 kg of bombs.
It had a non-retractable landing gear in flight and a tail support - a C-shaped crutch.
The shape of the airframe was created by a light set of duralumin frames and stringers supporting the fabric covering.
A frame with two wheels is attached to the bottom of the fuselage. Bicycle wheels with spokes
The chassis design and tail skid allow the aircraft to take off and land on hard ground. In winter, it is possible to replace the wheels with skis and take off and land on a shallow snow cover.
In conditions of aluminum deficiency in the USSR, the aircraft design was simple and inexpensive to manufacture and maintainable in the field. However, these same qualities worsened the survivability of the aircraft in combat and led to high losses of combat vehicles in the air.
The model is quite rare, in good condition. The model was kept in a special rack.
Material: metal, plastic. Scale 1/73.
Model in good vintage condition.
A perfect piece for collectors or as a gift for a child.
