Yes, 7 engines - people sometimes miss the pusher one:



This is a kit release and that is the box art that I posted earlier.  Will be in 1/72 as Frank said.  Thus the kit will be ~39cm long,  and with a wingspan of ~74cm.

In civil transport configuration, the K-7 would have had a capacity for 120 passengers and 7,000 kg (15,000 lb) of mail. As a troop transport it would have had capacity for 112 fully equipped paratroopers. In bomber configuration it would have been armed with 8 x 20mm autocannons, 8 x 7.62mm machine guns and up to 9,600 kg (21,200 lb) of bombs.

Looks like it needs more power.  A whiff with a larger engine would seem simple and practical.

Or two engines, one at the front of each fuselage section.

For its era (first flew) it wasn't a bad performer: Capacity: 12 people, Max Speed: 135km/h Cruise Speed: 115km/h Ceiling: 2,000m Range: 850km all from a single 110hp M-11 radial.  I could easily see this as a form of airborne assault platform instead of gliders.

I do like the AW-52, hopefully it will be nowhere near as heavy as the resin one I built a few years ago

That's the one I built, forgot who it was by. Quite a simple kit, but goes together well
