I return from the mandated tour of the polystyrene mines and decal printing collectives to find you all have been hard at work, bolstering the defenses of nasha Rodina! (Наша родина)

Sasha, the Third Deputy Assistant Marshall for the Positive Recognition Sub-committee of The Committee of State Sanctioned Modelling, Alternative History and Tractor Carburettor Production, agrees:



Comrade Tophenetsov! Thank you for the glimpse into the superior work ethic and dedication of the men and women of the Tophenetsov Design Bureau! They are leading the way to the future of World Socialism!

Great stuff, mon ami!

The red stars are truly delightful and I can only dream of having the capability to imagine what you've done!

Love the hammer & sickle ones too!

Thanks!

There was a political dispute also about the Parasol-wing RS-38: is the "parasol" a capitalist tourism tool?
The parasol Red-Star-38 had a problem: during the victory air-parade (soon for sure!), the red star would be half hidden by the aircraft, what a shame! So a parade version, special for being admired from the ground, has been developed. However, landing was a problem...

Comrade Tophe will ensure the skies above our glorious motherland are filled with the Red Star of Soviet Revolutionary fervor!

I especially like the one in the middle, mon ami and they're all very colorful!

I bet your son finds them delightful too.

Your imagination is boundless, Tophe!

Thanks!

And the best red-star Lightning may be the one designed for agricultural workers (with full military support): the farm workers together with chemical workers and aircraft factories workers all together will remove danger for the benefit of the population. Simply glorious!

The record crop yields will yet again prove the superiority of the Soviet system over the Running Dog West!

The workers' paradise beckons! You have nothing to lose but your chains!

Great stuff, Tophe! Making it an agricultural aircraft was truly inspired!

You should be awarded the Red Banner of Bukharin for your efforts!

 :) Yes, this chemical agricultural communist Heaven is delightful, but the generals clapping hands and requiring for soldiers now breathing masks are a little mysterious. ??? ;)

The Party denied that a single-seater is a good Soviet fighter: it is an individualist capitalist shame!
At least 12 Party members should decide in a meeting to turn right or left, fire or not, this is communism, victorious against selfishness and egotism!

While the Stalinian communists were happy with the Leader in front (on the Lightning above), the Leader having the final decision, the Trotskist communists denied that and required talking tables, even if that takes room (and the seats should rotate for front position of every one, changing every minute). This was efficiency and goodness all at once! (see below):

This one might be my favorite yet, comrade!

Glorious modern air transport for the great masses of the Workers' Paradise!

A 1,000 orders of Lenin to you!

Among sesquiplanes (with one and a half wings), the genealogy of the RS-38 is more easy to see:

Engineer John William Dunne has been enlightened by communist glory evidence, and that let to the DU-51s tailless biplanes:

I really like the tailless versions, Comrade!

Nothing could further prove the brilliance of Socialist engineering like these fine concepts!
