That is very cool. Thanks for giving us a chance to see it!

Or as Yakoff Smirnoff would say, "in Soviet Russia, TV watches you!"

How well was it made in comparison to a Western color set ? Was it an obvious "clone" of a European set, or an original Russian design ? I've often heard Soviet consumer stuff for "Ivan Average" was usually junk, but the stuff for the "Big Dogs" was pretty decently made.

And no, the Russians not copied anything, design their circuits and made them too well with oversized valves and components made to last. (In fact it works very well (I've replaced some capacitors on horizontal deflection) even after it has been 30 years in a cellar).
For their communist ideas of the then Russian families had to have a color television to be equal to the Americans and therefore it was not just for the rich was a single model for all.
