T-107 - 1945 passenger airliner
T-117 Kit (Whale)- 1947 military transport project
Bartini still was prisoner of NKVD's TzKB-28 'sharashka'.
What a dreamer, what a genious..an elegant design and elegant man!

The first transport aircraft with pressurised crew and cargo compartments.
Almost finished and scrapped due the same engines (Ash-73) in waist quantities were needed for Tupolev's B-29 copycat.

Excelent post Gregori....

What a beautiful illustrations...

Is very interesting the history of Bartini,a convinced italian comunist who worked for the URSS, later was arrested with his whole team between the purges Then he got permission to work again, but in Siberia.

... and not to forget Bartini's WIG aircraft carrier ...

Bartini seems to be the creator of the origin idea. OKB Beriev investigated a catamaran-like 'ekranoplan-avianosets' (i. e. 'Wing-In-Ground aircraft carrier') together with the TsAGI in 1963. An imposing model was tested on water - see picture below. A photo of the same model is published in the Ekranoplan book of the 'Red Star' series, but - as usual :mad:- I cannot find my own copy for the moment. In my memory it was pictured from a different angle and gives a better view to the markings of the landing site on the back of the mighty fuselage. More an aircraft carrier in the classical meaning/sense than the large concepts with tiny fighters under the wings.

Boxkite,

I have a copy from the Red Series "Russia's Ekranoplans" and thre are no pics from this design, only a short description.
I have the landing markings you describe but I can't remember where :'(. According to the markings, the carrier seems to be designed for VTOL aircraft....

This beautiful interior design, it is if we are looking the Airbus A380 in the forties.

Great work, specially because we know the soviet authorithies didn´t care about luxuries, or at least they said so.

Oh, no Soviets cared a lot, expecially for airplanes going abroad. I've been told that the interiors of the Tu-114 were outstanding. And just look to the Moscow subway! :eek:

Umm, just rised up from this crowded hell...yep, comparing to Chicago it smells better and more roomy.
Comparing to London it's much cheaper (GBP 0.30 per one ticket everywhere). And it's damn fast way to reach office.
That's why Flateric still have no car. But, frankly, most of all I liked Prague subway.

Hi, I'm new to this forum. I've started working on CGI models. I am trying to make a "decent" cgi model of the Bartini A57. My reference so far has been the book "Soviet Secret Projects Bombers Since 1945" by Yefim Gordon, but it does not seem to be completely consistent. any help on this plane will be gladly welcomed!

Thanks a lot,

p.d.: a very simple, layout can be seen in my personal image to the left.

Hope it can help some way. I'd better trust more first GA drawings as more recent one.
Drawing 1 and factory model photos (they are not from Panchenko) are from Nikolay Yakubovich 'Planes of Robert Bartini' (2006) RUSAVIA
second GA drawing (with Tzybin RGSR) is from G.F.Petrov's Hydroplanes and Ecranoplanes of Russia 1910-1999 (1999) Rusavia

regarding dimensions, according to Petrov, wingspan was 36.5(37.1) m, lenght 69.5(72.5)
according to Yakubovich wingspan 31,5 m, lenght 71,3 m

AFAIK, no detailed bureau documentation on A-57 survived.

flateric,

I did not know that there was a book devoted to the aircraft of Roberto Oros Bartini. Does it cover all of his unbuilt projects? I don't seem to able to find it at Aviapress and would appreciate it if you cover provide a scan of the cover. Thanks in advance

Here it goes http://www.eastview.com/xq/ASP/sku=776915B/f_locale=/IAkubovich/Nikolai/Vasil'evich/Moskva/Russia/Russian/qx/russian/books/product.asp
EastView wants USD 54.95 for it...in Moscow model shop it's about 600 roubles = USD 24. Problem is there are NO easy ways to transfer damn money in Moscow. PayPal only allows Russians to send money, not get them. And Western Union rates are real scum - add another 20 bucks transfer rate..so finally price getting close to these EastView's one. Book has all Bartini's projects, but I can't say it's RICHLY illustrated. Not much BW photos and really good 3-views. I'd price it at the level of 10-15 bucks.

You can try to contact guys from http://www.club-tm.ru via post@club-tm.ru, they have this book for 690 RUB (25 RUB ~ 1 USD)
At least I know them and can trust them. They take WebMoney transfers.

Some "old" renders, one "glossy" to check the underside and the other with two Mig 21 (F-7) for scaling purposes.

Thanks a lot varvarin!!! What I notice is a difference in the upper part. The drawing shows a "flat" surface, while the model and the drawings posted by flateric suggest a convex hull. any idea on this?

Cheers!

I'd better believe in old B/W photos of actual factory desktop model and first set of drawings from 2007 issued book than to Panchenko models (with all my respect to his business). His company models are based on open publications and often inaccurate. His A-57 one surely based on old one drawings (lower set in my first post) from 1999 book. What for artist's impression - remember that A-57 hasn't definitive last iteration, so it may be just one of dozens studied.

At a tangent, I was watching a documentary about Cold War bomber projects, and it had a section about Bartini (and some spiffy CGI of the jet flying boat bomber). There was a fascinating anecdote about him...

Bartini fell foul of Stalin's purges and ended up in jail in the late 1930s (I don't think he got out until after the war). During the war, the vile Beria, Stalin's sinister henchman and head of the dreaded NKVD, visited Bartini in prison. Bartini protested that he had no idea why he had been arrested, pleaded his innocence and professed his undying loyalty to Stalin.

Beria replied, "Of course you're innocent! If I'd thought you were guilty, I'd have had you shot."

T-117 mock-up. The aircraft was cancelled before receiving its Ash-82 engines because Bartini OKB was closed.

Hi,

the AL-40 was nuclear powered hydroplane of the 1960s,and look for this
strange concept of 1936.

If you need missed info - contact directly.

Very interesting images Ucon - thank you! By chance would you have drawings of the assault transport shown in the artwork you posted (with the armored vehicles leaving the aft ramp - Bartini 002)?

Enjoy the Day! Mark
