The plane ANT-25 set up several records of distance; it was included into the number of Soviet exhibits of the World air show in Paris in November, 1936, and gained there the exceptional success. In the morning of June, the 18th, 1937, the nonstop flight USSR-USA through the North Pole started. The crew team of Chkalov, Belyakow and Baydukow led the plane to the North. Over Canada the plane reached the cyclone, which the crew team had to get round for a long time. They flew at the height of 4-6 km. There was the lack of oxygen and the pilots were exhausted. They changed each other every hour. Over the Pacific Ocean the oxygen was over. They had to go down to the ground. In June, the 20th, at 19:30 Moscow time after 63 hours and 25 minutes of flight ANT-25 landed at the airport near the city Vancouver (USA). Over the ocean and ice the plane passed 9500 km, and several thousands of which - in blind flying. Just after 3 weeks the crew team of M.M. Gromov made one more crossing to America through the North Pole. The Soviet pilots set up by that a new world record of distance. The plane was in the air for 62 hours and 17 minutes, passing the distance of 11 500 km. In this model the plane "ANT-25" is represented in the colouring of the crossing by the team of Chkalov through the North Pole to the USA. There are not a bad designing, good detailed drafting, and silver colouring. All this will allow to assemble an interesting and nice model with the wing span of 1030 mm
