Ghost of the Caspian Sea
When the Mustard contacted us about building a 3D model of the Bartini-Beriev VVA-14, we were intrigued. Little did we realize what a long strange journey into the heart of one of Soviet aviation's most bizarre aircraft. We wound up building not one, not two, but three different versions of this beast, and in the process discovered the depths of the insanity of her creator.
Click the links below to view the 3D models of this unique [aircraft??!] from any angle. If you are interested in purchasing these models please contact us.
Bartini-Beriev VVA-14M3, the proposed VSTOL version
VVA-14M1, the initial prototype.
VVA-14M1P, a final bid to make the aircraft a success.
