The buildings are here :Building R-5

Sinkiang, 1934. Kit VP (vacu from Victoria production)









R-5 used in 1942 for night harassment along with U-2
Kit Apex and a lot of corrections.  








R-5 Sh
(Schturmovik with 4 PV-1 on wings) 1939 Mongolia Khalkhin-Gol battle
 kit MPM vacu with injected pieces (wheels, masts, propeller) . The best to make a R-5 until the arrival of the future AMG








R-5 SSS

 Skorostnoi, Skoropod'emnoi, Skorostrel'nyi  "High speed, rapid rise, rapid fire"
Many changes from the initial R-5.  
31 used by Spanish republicans as "Rasante".  Model of 1rst night attack squadron

Kit Vacukit (spain) , scratch for floats.

To allow the loading of a torpedo, the gunner and its Degtyarev were suppressed and the shape of the landing gear modified.

Wow - nice work, Bernard! You built the MPM vacuform twice, and the Victoria Products vac, too? Now I'm really impressed! There was also a vacuform from Air Kit in Russia, if you want to do another one.  Wink I tried yesterday to get some news from AMG regarding when their 1/72 R-5 will be available, but so far, no reply.

Hi Bernard,
this is an impressive work, very systematic  and well made. None can vaunt such a collection of Polikarpovs. I like these models very much. I have both the Apex and the MPM vacuform, but I don't think that they will ever leave their boxes.
I hope to see new works of you soon.
Regards

Thanks John and Massimo for your comments.

And the Vacukit (spanish origine) for the floatplane. This kit is close to the VP , but not identical and needs more corrections. Details in the building post on a french forum  Building R-5. The Russian Airkit is probably more accurate  if it's from  Alexandre Kozyrev (RIP) . I would be happy to find it.
Regards
Bernard
