Morane-Saulnier Type-G

Scratch built model plane in 1:72

This model was made 10 years ago.
Materials: wood, cardboard, cloth, sewing.

Prototype -- Morane-Saulnier Type-G (short wings), Imperial Russian air Force.
Pilot -- P.Nesterov, 1914.
On 26 August 1914 he rammed an Austrian reconnaissance plane Albatros B.II of Observer Baron Friedrich von Rosenthal and pilot Franz Malina from FLIK 11. Eager to destroy enemy aircraft, he probably intended to hit it with a landing gear of his Morane-Saulnier monoplane, but he hit it with propeller and as a result, both planes fell. Both pilots and Observer died.
