Title: Ilya Muromets (Илья Муромец)
Post by: han9 on September 17, 2016, 10:56:35 AM
Seems we do not have a thread about the Ilya Muromets (Илья Муромец) yet. It is hard to talk about Imperial Russian and early Soviet aviation without at least mentioning the type.

Since a picture speaks a thousand words and a film even more I will let the latter do the talking for me

Hell made.
I have a kit of ICM still to build, I am very worried for all the wiring one has to make.

Glad to know i'm not alone 
After studying the wiring diagrams and pic's i came to the conclusion that Sikorski was quite mad in those days :P
