Sikorsky Ilya Muromets

Take a look at this beautiful scale Sikorsky Ilya Muromets we saw at Weak Signal Expo last weekend.  The Ilya Muromets (Sikorsky S-22) was designed and constructed by Igor Sikorsky in 1913 and and was named after Ilya Muromets, a hero from Russian mythology. This pre-WWI airplane was intended for commercial use with its large fuselage, but during WWI the space was used to house a strategic bombing unit. The S-22 would become the first four-engine bomber to be equip with this type of weaponry.  The model we looked at was powered by Jeti and AXi. 🙂
