The IRL 1965 Russkit catalog is somewhat confusing to flip through. It's just a series of 8 two-sided product leaflets bound together to a 16-page "leaflet catalog".
I.e. the cover/front page shows the two Spyder series F1 cars Ferrari & Cooper, with the text info to the picture on the back side. 
 
When one opens the catalog, the two-page spread thus shows the text info for the cover Spyder F1 cars, with an accompanying picture of another two-page leaflet, the scratch-builder kit. And so on through the 1965 catalog, wrong text to the picture in every spread.
 
For your convenience I have corrected the issue in this flip-book. The spreads now shows the text and pictures that belong together in the correct order. Enjoy!

Phil, did you ever find anything useable in the dumpster? Around here, you might find a squirrel or a bear.

Axles, motors, bodies, wheels (but never the wire wheels), ect. Mainly parts, never cars or controllers.
