Yes, it is a kit made in Poland. Name "Czerwony Pazdziernik" like the Red October. Made by Adora Model. Could be bought at e.g.:

The scale is 1:200.
Because I thought I could better handle the frame which is 2 mm and 1 mm thick, I have decided to use balsawood which is easer to cut... little copromise, all other parts are paper.

I bought my when I was on model exhibition in Poprad, Slovakia. The Polish modelers usually bring with them a couple of kits to sell. The price was 200 Slovak crowns what is cca 7 USD.
Since there are several inaccurances (e.g. the size of holes for rockets in frame) be carefull when glueing ;-)

On the internet I found this site:

Look wor the "CZERWONY PAŹDZIERNIK" + model in google and you will sure find some supporters in Polland. In case you have some problems I can help. Just let me know.

I used balsawood to harden the ribs. I was supposed to use 2mm and 1mm thick paper, but I found out that it is quite hard to cut "nicely" such a thick paper, so I used balsawood, which is rather expensive but - what a pleasure to work with.
And I used noncolored adhesive usually used for paper and wood work. Since It is good to water down the glue, all glues which are water based are good. For some quick work I used quick drying adhesive.
