Very cool dio, congrats. 👍
The aircraft was actually captured by Soviets from the Latvians after it was captured from the Polish Air Force following an escape during the German conquest.

So the Latvians captured it first, and then the Russians? Do I have that right Lukasz? Did Latvia purchase any of this type from Poland?

They were first used to escape from conquered Poland to then neutral Latvia (which used to be more friendly to Poland than e.g. neighbouring Lithuania) in Sept 1939. Then, less then a year later the Soviets occupied Latvia and acquired all the Latvian stuff as well.

I like building and watching the planes or their kits with a story behind and this is prime example 🙂

Thanks Lukasz, and I agree completely, especially when it's not well known. Great job again on this Francesco, and on your other projects as well 👍

Guys, thanks a lot. I totally agree with Lukasz, I also like building stories a lot, especially if those are less known! 🙂 this why I called my collections "samolety i malyye miry", something like "aircraft and little stories"... 🙂 thanks again to you all!
