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:

Really nice work!👍 I particularly like the painted on markings. Canopy window sealing is also very neat: did you use decals for these?

Thank You!

Window sealing is airbrushed. I used the dedicated New Ware mask, Expert variant. They includes the window sealing.

You've done some truly great work and should be quite proud of the end result.

Thank You!

It was half a year of pure pain), and it's a lot things screams to be improved (riveting...)- but I started to lost the interest...

Wow, what s fantastic Fitter!

Fully realistic congrats!!

You even managed to load 4 bombs!!

The Su-7 always look so lightly loaded.... but actually that was already their max loadout!

It's Phantom sized, but the bombload is hardly half of Phantom's load. To make things worse-the internal fuel is short-so need of external fuel tanks instead of bombs...

I know the feeling. Sometimes I just don't want to throw the kit in the trash, but I don't want it just sitting on the shelf either, so I finish it; not my best work but I conquered the kit instead of the kit conquering me. I hope that makes sense. My best wishes to you.

Somehow Fitters look better in the mid-east camo scheme.

Yes agreed with the above, especially the Egyption scheme you have chosen to do. Thats a very fine Fitter, well worth the effort you had to put in. The weathing is superbly done :like:.

You have put a lot of hard work into the Fitter and the finished model is absolutely superb. Somehow Fitters look better in the mid-east camo scheme.

Oh yes, I like that a lot! Superb Fitter with a great desert camo scheme - well done

Yes, Middle East desert camouflages are interesting. This specific is Soviet factory applied, but most of the Fitters had domestically designed and applied camouflages-great variety of schemes and colors.
