  1. 1/48 swing-wing Fitter could be next Avantgarde release after the Foxhound, Tomcat and Albatros. Unconfirmed speculation at local modelling discusions but here are some connections between the AMK and Czech modellers.
  2. The initial export version of the Su-17M, (S-32MK). Photos thanks to Mike Costello taken at The Polish Aviation Museum, Krakow.
  3. Source: http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=45770 LEM - homepage under construction http://lemkits.com/ - has already proposed 1/32nd resin kits of a.o. Su-17/-22M3/M4/UM3 and MiG-27M (http://lemkits.com/catalog/77-132). Today this Ukrainian producer proposes a 1/32nd Sukhoi Su-7BM "Fitter-A" resin kit - ref.32008. Only available on Ebay - name "ruporator" http://www.ebay.fr/itm/1-32-Su-7-BM-Limited-edition-resin-model-kit-/121155652219?_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649&clk_rvr_id=509967881406&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT http://www.ebay.com/sch/ruporator/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=&_trksid=p3686 V.P.
  4. Modelsvit is to release a limited edition 1/72nd Sukhoi Su-22I (Su-7IG or Su-7BM with variable geometry wings) kit - ref.MSVIT 72009. Source: http://hobbyterra.com/product/sukhoi-su-22i-su-7ig-su-7bm-with-variable-geometry-wings-modelsvit-72009.html V.P.
  5. Sukhoi Su-7 Fitter-A, pics thanks to Jacek. This aircraft is an Su-7BM this had an upgraded AL-7F-1 engine, upgraded fuel system with external piping on either side of the fuselage spine, fuel tanks installed in the wings, "wet" underwing hardpoints for carrying external fuel tanks, capable of carrying tactical nuclear weapons.
  6. Build 9 Su-22? Sorry Dragon, you got it wrong! Because the markings supplied are only for a Russian Fitter, Su-17M4 is the correct designation, Su-22 is only used for export versions. Now that's cleared up... ;)This looks to be a very nice little kit and I'm looking forward to building it. It'll be built OOB except for the wing/wing glove joint which will need some work. Price: 99p eBay. The decals have yellowed a little and are currently Blu Tacked to my window...
  7. My last build for 2012 looks to be one that was built more as a quest, than a serious build! Anyway, it’s a Su-7BM (S-22M) “Fitter – A” of the former Soviet Air Force ca. late 1970’s. The inspiration (?) for this originated for me when wargaming in the 80’s, I played SPI’s “Oil War" which has several Su-7s featured. all with pretty low attack and range factors, which made me curious as to why these had such low value numbers. So – curiosity kills the cat! – and I discovered that operationally, Su-7s were hampered by a high landing speed of 340–360 km/h due to the thin, highly-swept wing. They had poor visibility from the cockpit, and lacked an instrument landing system, which made operations very difficult, especially in poor weather or on poor airfields. Apparently they were pretty fast and rugged. So, that said, I found pretty much the same with the characteristics of the model kit too! Modeling as a hobby requires multiple mental levels and directions, and the process was as follows; First – find something to build that would look basically Ok – and I discovered a “Fitter” kit somewhere in my stash…. Second - Then over about a 12 year period I would occasionally look at the kit box and remind myself never ever buy cheap model kits,.. but the intrigue and interest drove me to see what a cheap Fitter would look like built. Finally, with some determination, much chopping, cutting, sanding and an on-line visit to an obscure Russian company to buy some decent looking wheels, I managed to put together the aforementioned kit, and make it look something like it would have been years ago as a member of the Frontovaya Aviatsiya. Enjoy the Fitter - A! All the best for 2013. Adam
