The first photo is a Kalinin K-7a real airplane. The second photo is a figment of someone's imagination.

The plane flew only 5 hours or so, with lots of issues encountered. The tail ripped itself apart and the plane crashed, killing 15 members of its 20 person crew.

Its wingspan was just over 170 feet.

I love seeing old photos like that back when there were true pioneers in aviation.

Everyone has to go buy the book "The Worlds Worst Aircraft". It has this aircraft plus many more - I think most would make great RC subjects - rarely modeled.
There is an older version of this book, which is just as good!
