Experimental tailless bomber with two M-22 engines, yet another step on K.A.Kalinin's way towards his dream - rocket-powered supersonic flying wing aircraft. Light bomber carried crew of three.

Ten K-12 were built, but production was cancelled when K.A.Kalinin became a victim of Stalin's purges.
I was able to get this kit from Ebay, coming all the way from the Ukraine.
