Have spacesuit, young technician!

In the 1970´s and 1980´s Soviet clubs of "young technicians" attended annual competition "COSMOS". During the competition exhibition they showed their skills in constructing small models of the real, but most often fantastic spacecrafts and orbital stations. The most talented young constructors came from the town Sumy, Ukraine. They won the first prize in 1979 for the model of planetary vehicle GAGARINETS. Three years later they amazed the jury with a futuristic spaceship RUSSIA. Both models appeared on the front cover of a hobby magazine MODELIST KONSTRUKTOR.
