    For anyone interested in the GAZ-13 “Chaika” limo, I recommend reading its comprehensive genesis by Vadim Aleshin. Here’s “the works” on this Rare Bird, and worthy of a Benedictine scholar. Only in Russian, sorry:

    https://vakin.livejournal.com/1457049.html

    Among many facts, rare pics, trivia (and gossip ) you may learn where its “seagull wings” emblematic V symbol comes from, and the “inspiration” source of the instruments.

    Re: WUS Project Interest Poll

    Thank you Comrade for this valuable link!
    I've been looking at the pics because my very basic russian does not allow me to understand almost anything. But it surprised me that one of the pics of the Chaika in an exhibition could be in Spain (one of the colour photos), all the signs are in spanish (behind can be read in the building's façade "de edu" wich could be "de educación" (education) and "al 15 de Dic-= abierto" "to 15th dec.=open".
    The people behind don't look to be cuban.
    I can't precise where that building is, as the picture in centered in the Chaika's beauty, but then, this particular example could have made its way to Spain. The exhibition looks quite like a motor show. At that time, the only spanish city hosting ointernational motor shows was Barcelona.

    So thanks again for the link and the pics!
    Best regards

    Google translation of the paragraph introducing that picture:

    "Of course, the production of GAZ-13 was initially small-scale and was timed to a significant event - the 21st Congress of the CPSU Central Committee, famous for proclaiming the final victory of socialism in the USSR and the course towards communism by the 1980s. As for Chaika, she received a prestigious international award, a Grand Prix, at the World Industrial Exhibition EXPO-58 in Brussels a year earlier in pre-production."


    If this is correct, what is seen in the background could be the Spanish pavillion.

    Yes, Comarade, I guess you are right. For one moment I had toyed with the idea of a wonderful Chaika making its way down to Spain...

    Hello comrades!
    Really love the Dolphin project. Always were looking in this Poljot and thinking of searching for the good example.
    Is the poll finished? Is there still any opprotunity to get in a list for Dolphin?

    This poll will close on April 8th, 2019 at 06:15
    Way too early to worry about getting on a wait list for any of the choices.

    Re: WUS Project Interest Poll

    Nice initiative to start the poll. I voted for the Dolphin. I think 710 case will do best for this watch. I will follow further progression on this subject :)
    edit: Looking closer, I wonder if a 150 case maybe will suit this design better......hmmm also nice. Anyways, both will do for me personally
