The Autogiro was an early type of helicopter. In the 1930's aircraft manufacturers in various countries experimented with this type of machine. One of the most advanced types was the Kamov A-7 from the Soviet Union. Only a few were built, but these were successsfully tested in the 1939 "Winter War" against Finland and saw action in 1941 when Germany attacked the Soviet Union. However,the Russians had more pressing needs and it was found that most tasks could be done with conventional light arplanes that were simpler to produce.
The model consists of two models on a sprue. Buyers will have to add rotors and crew. The models come unpainted.
