Replica of the PZL "ŁOŚ" aircraft, static model in 1:4 scale. Made by the late designer and model building enthusiast, Eugeniusz Wołkowicz. The designers of the aircraft were: Jerzy Dąbrowski, Piotr Kubicki and Franciszek Misztal. The prototype was first flown on 13 December 1936 by the test pilot of the Państwowe Zakłady Lotnicze (Polish State Aviation Works), Jerzy Widawski. The aircraft was equipped with two star engines PZL "Pegasus XXA" or "Pegasus XXB" and was produced by the Państwowe Zakłady Lotnicze Wytwórnia Płatowców nr 1 (State Aviation Works, the Airframe Factory No. 1) in Warsaw at Okęcie, and later by the Państwowe Zakłady Lotnicze Wytwórnia Płatowców nr 2 (State Aviation Works, the Airframe Factory No. 2) in Mielec, which was established within the Central Industrial District. It was equipped with a unique independent twin-wheel suspension system, a design that was used for the first time in the world. The author of the concept was Piotr Kubicki, and it became a model for many multi-wheel landing gears used in the construction of heavy multi-engine aircraft.
