  1. Greetings all, My Dad's medals have come to me. Can you help me identify them?
  2. Greetings all; Thanks for your help. Here is a further bit of fun I dredged up. http://www.rathbonemuseum.com/USSR/USSR35V...VSGenPilot.html http://www.rathbonemuseum.com/USSR/USSRArmyMain.html
  3. Somehow I feel a brick wall coming up. Where is my helmet? The aircraft model is from the early 1920's
  4. Excellent Rick! Most informative. For the 1920's I can assume that these orders were not availbale?
  5. Greetings all; I am doing some figures for a VVS display. I would like to Identify the awards and ranks presented on the box art to at least get them in the correct time. Nothing like doing a figure represented in 1920's with awards that didn't exist at the time. These are supposedly from 1943-45. Any help would be appreciated.

  11. Greetings all I am doing a bit of research on a unit and commander of 1 OIAE stationed at Petrograd (Leningrad) in 1923. Pilot was A. T. Kozhevnikov. The aircraft of the squadron appear to have been divided into three flights of five plus a leaders aircraft. The squadron leaders aircraft has a Pharaoh / Sphinx bust on the fuselage side and was Kozhevnikov's personal badge. The photo I have is grainy but there does not appear to be any red stars on the upper wing. The flights all have leaf like emblems in a darker (red?) colour on the rudders in three separate forms.
