As a side project to my prototype group build I just finished these two little fellows:







Both 1/144 Anigrand kits.

Very neat Tom.

Were they the "free" kits they put in a few of their bigger models ?

I'm liking those Tom, the top one looks like it could be on skis and have a big propeller on  the back of it...maybe ;)

I think the official term is "bonus kits" ;)

The KalininK-15 is with the Sukhoi T-4 kit and the Lippisch DM-1 with the Junkers Ju-352.

I think it was meant to be powered by a rocket engine.
It does have a central landing skid.....

Ah yes "Bonus Kits"  ;D Thought I remembered them Tom. I gave a lot of mine away to someone I knew who was well into 1/144 and unlike me could make the most of them.

The silver one has a 50s scifi movie look to it.  Would look right in the Michael Rennie original ‘The Day The Earth Stood Still’.  I can see Klaatu standing next to it!
