Default PZL P 23 Karaś, bomber

Hello all ,
I built a model of the Polish PZL P 23 Karaś bomber on a scale of 1 / 4.5.
Wingspan 3.1m
Weight 23 kg
I installed a Moki 180 cm engine in it.
I can't insert photos, can you show me how to insert photos? thank you.

On behalf of Irek, who is neighbour from my town and friend of mine, I attach some pictures of his project.
This is very unique model of polish bomber which took part in the very begining of WWII.
This is also I believe the only flyable rc airplane of PZL P 23 "Karaś"
Karaś translates into Crucian....
As you can tell from the pictures, attention to details of this model is outstanding. It has full cockpit with working lights of panel and radio instruments.
Pictures shows building progress and final product in the air.
Irek is planning to make a kit of this model which will be available for purchase soon.

I heard you must have at least 10 posts in order to begin inserting photos - thank you darod07 for posting irek's photos - Crucian = European carp - I had to look this up :-)

Incredible workmanship and attention to detail - the sheet-metal, especially on the wing skins, looks very realistic; what is the primary form of construction? Is the first photo a plug to pull a mold or the actual airframe?

Thanks for sharing these!

The model is made in a laminate version. The fuselage and center plane are laminated, the wings are wooden. My idea was to make a model with signs of use. Thank you for recognizing my work. The plane is full-scale. As soon as I have permission to post photos here I will show you the entire production process

Thumbs up Bravo!

The engine has a very unique sound for what I thought was only available as a single cylinder - Googling it shows both single and radial types - I never knew Moki also produced radials.

Thanks for sharing the video - it acts lighter than (23kg) 50 lbs. :-)

Spinner design is a weak point for many scale subjects and getting it right does a lot for making the airplane look correct. Yours looks correct -
The spinner on this airplane is similar to the one used on the PZL P.11 that I would like to do a sport-scale subject for some day.
I have particular interest in the spinner fabrication and the landing gear (undercarriage) bellows covering the torque links - please show any work to create these features if you have a chance.
