"No longer a Su-7, but not quite a Su-17 yet!"

1/72 S-22I/Su-7IG - pics of the sprues and instruction on scalemodels.ru - LINK!
Perfect whiffing fodder!   :wacko:


I hope they'll continue the Fitter line and eventually give us a new Su-17/20/22.....  :party:

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

I've just reviewed those sprue shots; Very nice. The instruction sheet looks very comprehensive and clear as well....

And barely three weeks later, here's their Su-17M, first major production version of the swing-wing Fitter!

Now those are SERIOUS wing fences!  :o
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Lovely.  And in the correct scale.

That just has so much potential, as the real McCoy, in its projected Cold War use, then whiffing with a different user/scheme, updated, back-dated, a plane, a boat a sub or as a basis as a sci-fi model  :thumbsup:. That's the sort of single kit we could have a themed build based around !

It'd drive the IPMS Competition crew daft trying to work out which class it'd go in.  ;D :lol:
