Gribovskii G-17: At a loss for words.

V. K. Gribovskii was a little-known, but prolific, russian (soviet) aircraft designer. Gribovskii’s forte were gliders and light aircrafts. His spellbinding radial-engined G-17 canard project is a mystery (late 1930s, I think). This drawing appears in Bill Gunston’s classic “The Osprey Encyclopedia of Russian Aircrafts”;  with only the “G-17 canard project” quote as info.
