Made in Ukraine
The Ekranoplan is a remarkable invention that combines the features of a glider, an airplane, and a boat into a single mechanism. This vehicle can fly over relatively flat surfaces such as deserts, fields, and water, utilizing air cushion effects generated by the airflow ascending off the surface.
In 1960s a most powerful and big machine was built. It was a secret soviet project named “KM”, a soviet trial to make a warship from rare biggest ekranoplan on planet. The model known as the "Caspian Sea Monster" underwent several test flights, but after a series of accidents, it was deemed impractical.
However, the audacity of the engineering concept laid out in the "Caspian Sea Monster" still captivates enthusiasts of large mechanisms and machines, inspiring designers to achieve new accomplishments.
The engineers at "Metal Time" didn't overlook this remarkable object and created a model based on the core concept of the "KM" project. This aircraft had ten jet engines, short wings, and distinctive features in its tail section. It was designed for flights over water surfaces and could glide during takeoff and landing. All these features were incorporated into the self-assembly model of the "Caspian Sea Monster."
The self-assembly model "Caspian Sea Monster" comes with a platform on which the ekranoplan is placed. The platform can be detached, allowing the model to be used for various purposes, such as prototypes, installations, technological toys, and more.
Schematic jet engine turbines are positioned on the fuselage, nose, and tail sections of the model—eight in the front and two in the rear.
This configuration made the "Caspian Sea Monster" prototype a unique aircraft with no equal in the world.
