AMO-7279 1/72 Kamov KASKR-2 Soviet Autogyro model kit

The first of these was the KASKR-1 built by the designers N.I.Kamov and N.K.Skrzhinsky. It made its maiden flight on September 25, 1929 at the hands of I.V. Mikheyev, with its designer N. I. Kamov in the rear cockpit. The design of the aircraft resembled the well-known Cierva C-8 autogyro. Shortly afterwards the young designers built an improved model, the KASKR-2 (1930) based on the KASKR-1. NIIVVS (Air Force Scientific and Research Institute) specialists participated in the evaluation of the autogyros performance. Between 1929 and 1931 the autogyros made 79 test flights.
