Description
 

Kit #AA2004. 1/72 scale. Highly-detailed resin kit with decals. In 1964, the Soviet Defense Ministry issued a five-year military space plan, that included the "Spiral" space-plane project. The Spiral program was conceived i response to the American X-20 Dyna-Soar. Under development in Mikoyan bureau as a part of the program, the MiG 105-11 EPOS (Experimental Passenger Orbital Aircraft) was planned as a manned spacecraft. The Spiral space system consisted of an orbital spacecraft (MiG 105) with a rocket booster and supersonic aircraft-carrier. After completing its orbital mission, the spacecraft would re-enter earth's atmosphere with the wings set as a 60-degree that served as the vertical stabilizers. The program started without leadership support in 1965. Due to technical difficulties, only one MiG-105-11 was built. The first flight was planned to take place in 1967, but was delayed almost ten years later to October 1976. A total of eight test flights were made that included air-drop launches from a Tu-95K Bomber. In 1978, the program was ended as the funding was halted to concentrate resources on the new Buran Shuttle program.
