Eduard Su-22/Su-17M-3 1/48
« on: August 15, 2010, 09:53:44 AM »
Greetings all,

after some delay I have start build of the kit of the well known Soviet variable sweep attack plane Su-17. I am not much informed about the same kit history and this kit from Eduard, item number 1149, is actually reissue of the older kit. Package is full equipped with Eduard decals, box, Brassin and it look really great. He re you are overall impression of the kit:



Here you are some of the first steps I have made in building of this kit. First few images show dry run of the position of the cockpit elements inside fuselage. Most important to note is that making of the variable sweep it are so specific, like the biplanes and triplanes, and there is need to complete wings first and as complete section to build in kit. Also note that in nose cone I have put a lot of fishing lead and then fix it with super glue. One of the first step is also cut of the door front edge and placing of the same parts in front. This give correct shape of the u/c door.

Thank you  :-flo Next images show general work on the cockpit interior as well merging of the fuselage halves. First two images show some of the photo etched parts in the cockpit hub. Interior color is light blue and this is real doubtful what color to use as well some images show grey blue color while some show clear blue color. I use color similar to RLM 65, you can use Humbrol 65 or mix of this color with 47. As well I have never seen actual color, it is hard to determinate it even from clear images but this is definitely light blue color... hue is another question.

Another three images show the painting of the nose cone as well termineson on vertical. It is much easy to complete cone before fuselage assembly, in later step it just need to be cover and keep from spray of camouflage color. For this purpose I use Revell 360 green color.

The rest of images show dry run of fuselages half's before assembly with some points like the position of the elements after the assembly. No matter that joint lines are fine, I prefer to seal it with hand brushing with Gunze Sangyo Mr. Surfacer 500.

More to come...

As well this will be review on our web site and very possible as article in magazine, this mean that original box package decals will be used. This kit is official provided by Eduard as review sample.
