DOBI-I (1922) , RSS-Hobbis, 1:72


Recommended Posts

Good day,

I would like to introduce my model of the first Lithuanian aircraft DOBI-I


2022 marks 100 years since the young Lithuanian pilot and aircraft designer Jurgis Dobkevičius tested his first aircraft DOBI-I in the air. This is not only the first design of J. Dobkevicius, but also the first Lithuanian aircraft in general!

DOBI-I characteristics - Length: 4.50 m, Wingspan:  7.90 m, Empty weight:  167 kg, Engine:  1 × Haacke HFM-2 flat twin, 22 kW (30 hp), Maximum speed:  175 km/h

The single DOBI-I prototype was damaged beyond repair in an accident on December 1925.


More information about the Dobi-I can be found in "Illustrierte Flug-Woche" (1922.VIII.16) and "Aeronautical Engineering" (1922.X.18). Also if you have any questions about the model, please contact rss.hobbis@gmail.com
