1/48 Su-17/22M-3 Fitter-J Eduard&Kitty Hawk

Recommended Posts

The break at work on Frogfoot, I started another project. Su-22M-3K is the export version of the Su-17M-3 with engine R-29-300 also used for the Mig-23.Differs mainly the rear fuselage and rudder.Were exported to Hungary, Peru, Libya, Vietnam, Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Afghanistan.
Since I am lazy, I used the rear fuselage of the model Su-7 OEZ Letohrad.

Su-22M3K were used seat K-36DM early versions. I used therefore modified the seat from the set RESIN ART for Su-25th In this set, I used the control stick.

Excellent, someone actually doing the surgery to make a correct M-3, not just putting the wrong decals on the Eduard kit. Will watch this with interest. Also out of interest are you going to do anything about the over-thick wings?

Air brakes are OK!

I don't know yet what with wings. I'll probably make new.

After a week there's another little progress. I gave right shape the tail fin.
IMG_5459_zps6fdd01d0.jpg
In the next step, I corrected the top part fuselage.

What looked like a nightmare, it was not so bad. Sanding and sanding and wing has the correct profile.

IMG_5469_zpse87b656b.jpg

IMG_5473_zps0c47f01d.jpg

Of course it was necessary to modify certain shapes, especially landing flaps

IMG_5478_zps0ae9f170.jpg

IMG_5467_zps22159c4e.jpg

Wings in position before take-off. Version M-3 and all previous versions Su-17/20/22 in this position using only slots.. It will be interesting ...

I just saw this one. Big project don't scare ya, do they? The fuselage swap is :speak_cool: Would have never thought of doing it this way, otlishtniy.

I too sanded the outer wings on my first Su-22, then on the second one I took a different approach: grooves on the inside of the parts and cuts on the inboard sides allowed to 'flatten' the parts to a more realistic appearance.

... I know about it, but now I do not know how to fix it ... :hmmm: :please:

Impressive! As if there was not enough work with this one if you build it OOB... :)

and I want more, Su-22M-4 and UM-3K ... :doh:

... I know about it, but now I do not know how to fix it ... :hmmm::please:

my solution: I sanded away the plastic on the fuselage til I got a drooping attitude. surely not enough but at least the right dirction:

you know this build:

http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234934642-su-22m4-fitter-148-updates-tactical-numbers-etc/page-4?hl=su-22m4

sand away the plastic where the red lines arered

the more or less finished one with subtle drop visible (to me at least) ;)

IMG_8134_1_zps1ac08fdc.jpg

Wings have the right shape and size.

I watched your work. I'll probably have to make a new windscreen. The main problem is bad inclination armor windscreen. Other shapes are OK

maybe I am wrong, but the main problem is the straight fuselage part where the canopy is to be placed.

it should be angled down as in your plans.

I used them to draw in red the inclination

post-564-1282989095_zpsaea68cfb.jpg

maybe we are speaking of the same thing, just in case!

manufacturing a new front canopy is definitely out of the scope of my capabilities!

let me know about your solution!

Again I looked at everything and here is the result. End of the windscreen must be increased by 1.25 mm. Blue tape on the right shows edge of the frame.

IMG_5511_zps731a8380.jpg

Problem with inclination windscreen I removed. Sanding and Evergreen are good helpers. :winkgrin:

After a long time, little progress.Not a KP but a new kit from Kitty Hawk.After opening  box I was very happy, beautiful surface, perfect details, great progress from 25 years old KP.I started building.And then I found out , waiting to Hobby Boss.Bad shapes and angles I din't want to fix but surface bugs?
Visibly cut mold, senselessly holes.http://IMG_6204_zpsqhjkj7ih.jpghttp://IMG_6223_zpsdm2lq6lm.jpghttp://IMG_6205_zpsutvz0bpy.jpg
Dents on the surface of the details.
http://IMG_6201_zpsbnnbggeb.jpghttp://IMG_6211_zpscbzcxqfx.jpghttp://IMG_6198_zpsi0hvured.jpg

Of course,during repairs disappeared many details.
