  1. Hi comrades! This beast finished. The build was complicated. Everything possible to exchange with aftermarket parts was exchanged. Some additions were scratchbuit. More details on the build can be found here: Thanks for looking
  2. Hi comrades! My next build is ancient Su-7 kit in Revell box. The Shmer's kit is the best available in the last 40 years). I'll add some aftermarket parts. The prototype I chose from the Harpia's excellent reference book. So, let's start)) Thanks for looking
  3. Kovozávody Prostějov is to release in 2017, in its Premium Line, a 1/48th Sukhoi Su-7UM/UMK "Moujik" kit. This kit will be based on the classic OEZ/Směr Su-7 with a new fuselage, resin parts, PE & masks. Source: http://www.modelarovo.cz/novinky-kpaz-pro-rok-2017/ V.P.
  4. Hi all, A plea for reassurance! My intended Su-7 build has a reference photo, in black and white, and clearly shows a demarcation line on the nose between the upper grey(?) and a lighter underside. The only other photos I have found if similar machines, with such a demarcation, and in colour, show a blue grey as the grey on the upper side. I’m not yet convinced that my machine had this grey. Assuming it did, my question is whether anyone out there knows this shade of colour? Of course if this isn’t the scheme I’d welcome any theories about the scheme. Thanks in advance. Any ideas? @tomthounaojam @Linescriber @Stilwell @HOUSTON @Basuroy and any other Soviet/Indian experts? Martin
  5. Hi all, I'm in the middle of a build of the Modelsvit Su-7BMK in 1/72 and I plan for it to be in the later Indian "Hunter" style scheme. However, most if not all of the photos of these machine are unclear about the underside colours. I'm told that Lt grey is appropriate but some shots appear to simply show the grey of the upper camo extending underneath. Does anyone know the truth? Thanks a lot. Martin
  6. Hi all. Presenting SU-7 BMK 1/72 from Modelsvit. A very good kit. Made it on Egypt colors. Used Pavla's canopy and KS-3/4 seat. Thx.
  7. Lockdown time... Some free time for modelling. Yes I'm not only a rumourmonger but also a modeller. I went to my bench and had a look at the too numerous started and unfinished projects (Am I the only one ?) and for an undefinite reason I choosed that f. vintage OEZ 1/48th Sukhoi Su-7BKL/BMK "Fitter-A" - ref.02 I started assembling this kit years ago but was not really satisfied to say the least with the parts fitting, rather ironic for a Fitter but... This time I think it's ok. After a lot of sanding and rescribing, I finally initiated the painting works. Pre-shading time https://nsa40.casimages.com/img/2020/05/04/200504093826618672.jpg https://nsa40.casimages.com/img/2020/05/04/200504093828142445.jpg Then MR. Paint for the dark green and the light grey-blue, AKAN for the sand and radome green After appropriate Klir and wash, she's ready for decalling with Hi-Decal Line ref. 4812 That's the moment I've discovered the Microset stock is empty... Grrrr. Waiting my order: 3 bottles, one for use, two for stock. Also still waiting the release from the long promised (since February 2017...) Kovozávody Prostějov 1/48th Sukhoi Su-7U/UMK "Moujik" link And as it was too difficult to choose the variant, I've in the meantime started a trio of 1/48th Tarangus/Special Hobby Viggen: JA37 grey camo, AJ37 in splinting, Sk37 in progress. But that's another story. V.P.

  10. Hi Guys, Here are my Su-7 Fitters from OEZ but reboxings from Smer and Eduard. Not very easy kits but very well build able. Added air scoops and ventilation louvres from Quickboost and resin ejection seats from Eduard. Armament is a mix from the kit and from a Eduard MiG-21. The Iraqi decals are from the Eduard box and the Algerian came of a decalset from Hi-Decal. ] Erik
  11. Hello chaps. Finally this one has come to an end. It is a Kopro kit with tons of aftermarket and many corrections made. Check more on the build in this topic : work in progress The kit is made for a friend and blogger R.S from the very well known blog on SyAAF airplanes. Here it is... for more photos check this site: http://militaryaviation148.blogspot.si/2017/03/su-7bmk-syaaf-1973-ramadan-war.html
  12. Gentlemen As I am almost done with the Iraqi Hunter, it's time to post a new WIP. This one is second in line of the SyAAF next to the L-29. I thought of doing the one from the Ramadan war in '73... The kit is the old Kopro and during the years I managed to collect some aftermarket for it: Neomega cockpit and seat, Eduard interior, SAC metal landing gear, quickboost vents and such and Armory resin wheels. A few years back I did an Algerian Fitter, so no big surprises are expected... The seat looks great: the pit is also nice... After some painting... I've used IP decals from some leftovers, cut them out... I think it's better than I could ever do by hand... To make a BM/BMK out of BKL you need to remove some plastic. The BKL had skids on the landing gear so the wells were larger. A minor surgery... Quickboost vents are too small And that's about it for now. Stay tuned and thanks for looking in. cheers
  13. For this GB I will be doing something a little bit different for me, I’ll be building two identical models! By pure chance on evilbay I came across 2 1/48th OEZ Su-7’s for about $10 US! One model was missing the canopies and decals, but the kind sole threw in a VacForm aftermarket one. This wasn’t really needed as the kit supplies both open and closed canopy sets. So I intend to build a Czech Air Force and Soviet Su-7BKL, though right towards the end of their lives they were still frontline attack aircraft in the early 80’s (they were still some in service in the very early 90’s!). The model/s are really nice and have been used by Eduard with extra bits added (that said I now have 2 of the Limited Edition Su-17/22M3’s in the stash with full AM accessories as well!!!). The instructions are……interesting!! Will be using a set from the Eduard Su-7. Because they were so cheap I’ll be throwing heaps of AM stuff, this is just some of the stuff, still need more! So far; Eduard – Internal & External sets, BKL (BMK not needed) Wheel Well Doors QuickBoost – Intake Scoops (need another set) Aries – Cockpit set Wolfpack – Engine nozzle set Pavla – Ejection set The open canopy version will have the AM cockpit set, the closed will have the Eduard added bit. Colours scheme have yet to be finalised and I may switch the Soviet one to a Polish one yet. I can’t wait for this GB!!!!

  15. Su-7BKL "Fitter-A" 1:48 MisterCraft The Su-7 was a swept wing supersonic aircraft developed by the Sukhoi design bureau in the 1950's. Originally designed as a fighter it was not a great success, but would later find its role in bombing and ground attack. The Su-7BKL added a rough field capability to the BM which was itself an upgrade for the B model featuring an upgraded engine. In addition wet hard points under the wings were added, and the airframe made nuclear capable. The BKL also featured provision for JATO rockets. 267 were built and many were supplied to Soviet satellite states. The Kit The plastic in this kit is from OEZ in 1989, and has been reboxed over the years by many different companies. Even though the pastic can be a little thick this is still the best Su-7 kit produced to date. Construction starts off not in the cockpit but with the underwing thanks, ordinance, and the JATO rockets; though I suspect many modellers will leave this until later and move straight onto the cockpit. A basic 4 part ejection seat is made up, this fits into the cockpit which is built up on top of the front wheel well. Attached to the front of the cockpit is the nose radar bullet assembly. 10 grams of weight is recommended here, but it looks like as much as you can cram in would be advisable! The exhaust nozzle is also completed at this stage. The next stage of assembly is the landing gear which is fairly complex. Each main gear has 6 parts and the wheel, then the gear doors which need to be cut if doing a wheels down aircraft need attaching to the legs. The nose gear has a two part leg trapping the wheel, then two struts. Once these are made up the two part vertical tail and rudder assembly is put together. This is then followed by assembling both wings. These are of standard upper/lower construction. Now that a lot of the sub assemblies are complete construction can move to the main task. The cockpit/nose radar units along with the exhaust are enclosed in the main fuselage, then the wings are attached along with the vertical tail, and tail planes. Two prominent cable ducts are added along with the under wing hard points. The rear airbrakes can be open or closed. The landing gear is added along with the JATO bottles if you wish, and armament of your choice. Rocket pods and large single rockets are provided along with fuel tanks. Lastly the canopy is added, and a boarding ladder is provided if the modeller wishes to use it. Markings As well as having Bort numbers for nine different aircraft assigned to the Polish Air Force all in NMF, four other decal options are provided. Red 25 Soviet Air Force 1960's (NMF). White 25, Soviet Air Force in now Ukraine (4 colour Camo) 1960. 6427, Czechoslovak Air Force, 1984-89 (4 colour camo). 6514, Czechoslovak Air Force, 1984-89 (3 colour camo). The decals are seem to be well printed, colour dense and have minimal carrier film Conclusion This kit is still really the only game in town for a 1/48 Su-7. It is showing its age a bit, but builds upto a good looking model. Recommended. Review sample courtesy of UK distributors for
  16. Hi I have posted some NATO QRA pictures and some visiting Warthogs from my recent Centre of Aviation Photography assignment to Šiaulia, but I thought you might like to see some of the Lithuanian assets and vehicles as well as some monochrome Hungarian Gripens..... Thanks for looking.

  22. Sukhoi Su-7 Resin Upgrades for Modelsvit Kit 1:72 Pavla Ukranian company Modelsvit’s new Su-7 kit was warmly welcomed when it was released last year. Although a limited run kit at heart, the kit is richly detailed and includes a generous array of ordnance. The kit even comes with an 8U69 tactical nuclear weapon complete with trolley. Now Pavla have released a series of upgrades for the basic kit, including a cockpit, nose cone and vacuum formed canopy. Sukhoi Su-7BM Cockpit (for Modelsvit kit) The basis of the cockpit set is a large piece which forms the floor of the cockpit, as well as the nosegear bay and intake centrebody. Also included are the cockpit sidewalls, the rear bulkhead and decking, a replacement instrument panel and coaming, control column and rudder pedals. A resin ejector seat and a vacuum formed canopy round off the package. Detail is delicately rendered and looks nice and sharp. The parts are very well cast and I couldn’t find any bubbles or flaws in my set. Unlike previous Pavla sets that I’ve reviewed, this one has been nicely packed with a piece of foam for protection, so the parts won’t rattle around. This seems like a small thing, but delicate resin parts are easily broken so it’s a welcome development. Sukhoi Su-7 Nosecone (for Modelsvit kit) If you’re going to order the cockpit (and why wouldn’t you) then you may as well pick up one of these at the same time. I don’t have the base kit to hand, so I can’t comment on the difference between the kit part and this resin alternative, but for the price I’m pretty sure you can’t go wrong. Sukhoi Su-7 Canopy (for Modelsvit kit) The vacuum formed canopy included with the cockpit set is also available as a separate item. If you don’t fancy the whole cockpit, then you might want to pick this up instead. It’s cheap as chips and will help spruce up the base kit no end. Conclusion A resin cockpit is always worth considering as it’s a focal point for most kits. This looks pretty good, and if my own experience is anything to go by, it should fit in the kit pretty well. The seat is excellent, and the resin nosecone looks great too. Recommended.

  23. 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
