That's right.
The Kalinin was a prototype for a much larger tialless russian bomber. First flight was late 1936, powered by two 480hp M22 engines.
Unfortunally the designer was arrested in 1938 and his design bureau disbanded, so the devellopment of a full scall tailless bomber died with it.

Airacobra Mk.IB, I guess. But I don't think there was ever an intention to deliver the D-2s to Britain. The P-39D-1s was intended for use by the RAF as Airacobra Mk.IA. Some D-2s were shipped to USSR.

Hmm.. - maybe I should check my sources but "Airacobra I" or "Airacobra Mk.I" is correct I think. Another name was "Model 14" though I'm sure it was before or after shipping they got that one.

Airacobra Mk.I was the British designation for the P-400.

(edited)
More info:
Model 14 was a factory name of Bell Aircraft Co. for P-39 export variants.

Model 14 = P-400 = Airacobra Mk.I
Model 14A = P-39D-1 = Airacobra Mk.IA
Model 14A-1 = P-39D-2 = ???

You probably mean 24th March 1951. I wasn't able to find any information on the kill you are talking about. The first kill achieved by the F-86 was a MiG-15 on 17th December 1950, by Lt.Col. Bruce Hinton (336th FIS, 4th FIW).

However, the first jet-to-jet battle took place several weeks earlier, and F-86 wasn't there... so, does anyone know?

About the model: my best guess is model 4 (the Jack of all trades),

In 1923 Fokker established an American factory under the name of Atlantic Aircraft Corporation based at Teterboro, New Jersey.
The company began series production of the Model 4 Universal wich soon gained popularity as a "jack-of-all-trades".
