Holger Kranich Not your typical scale, hu? But looking great so far!
26. December 2018 at 12:32:28
Martien Lourens I'm getting older Holger. The hands begin to vibrate and the eyes get worse. So then on at 1:32 scale. :) :)

Erik Leijdens Nice work so far Martien! I don't want to be a nit picker but the cockpit of the Su-7 is grey instead of the blue/green colour often seen in Soviet planes.
10. December 2018 at 08:05:55
Alexander G. Looking good so far! PE parts are a nice addition
11. December 2018 at 05:49:20

17. December 2018 at 12:02:56
Bryn Crandell Looking good. Can't wait to see more.
17. December 2018 at 12:25:20
Wim van der Luijt Very nice work Mart! and I see you are moving back into 1:48, a one time excersize?
21. December 2018 at 10:33:49
Jos Jansen Excellent work so far Martien ...!
21. December 2018 at 13:35:48
Nathan Dempsey I've got one of these in the works too. I think you're giving me some inspiration!
21. December 2018 at 18:01:27
James C Nice!!!
21. December 2018 at 19:42:34
Michael Phillips Looking good so far! I really like this aircraft, lots of cool schemes that can be done as well.
21. December 2018 at 20:15:26
Martien Lourens Thanks mates for the comments. @ Wim. I have sold 4 years ago, all of the 1/48 scale models. Only the russian planes.
21. December 2018 at 22:18:57
Erik Leijdens Nice job so far Martien. I have made two of those, crude but very nice kits. I see you have placed the nose cone correct, mine are to far on the inside.

Jens Hello Martien, as you paint pefekt, win beautiful Russian in Czech colors Question on the edge, what was the quality of the plastic or the shapes are not from Modelsvit ?
10. December 2018 at 06:47:46
Martien Lourens Hallo Jens. Danke , It is Modelsvit. But all the old modelsvit, need a lot of attention. But the qualities and detailing are very good. For this su 7 a have used no cockpit detail set. But for the su7 u and su7 bmk I will used the pavla cockpit set .
The modelsvit Su 17 -22 are much better in detail and quality, than the Su 7 familie. But still it is not tamiya. But I like the modelsvit kits
10. December 2018 at 07:11:47
Łukasz Gliński Another Eastern beauty, Martien. Keep it up!
10. December 2018 at 08:14:52
Cuajete Very nice, Martien. Congrats!
10. December 2018 at 13:16:00
Neuling I agree with Lukasz and Cuajete!
10. December 2018 at 13:55:55
Bernhard Pethe Modelsvit does beautiful things. I like the model very well. I should also build some Sukhoi's again.

Ekki Beautiful!
10. December 2018 at 21:28:01
Stephan Ryll Nice build and dio Martien
11. December 2018 at 18:03:11
Alec K Gorgeous rendition . I am debating delving into the KP kit, but looks like the Modelsvit is a better option, if for nothing else but the engraved panel lines.
11. December 2018 at 18:30:30
Łukasz Gliński @Alec: same story here :) Anybody wanting to buy the KP one? ;)

Martien Lourens Thanks mates for the comments. @Christian Lehmann. it has a somewhat unconventional construction. This may be due to the 3 different options that you can build. Flying, Ready for catapulting, and non-active. You have also the option to install the radar in the nose . But I can tell you that everything fits perfectly. And I did not have to use putty.
Minus point is the armament. The wings of the sparrows are somewhat thick. These I have replaced with self-made fins
And I replaced the ejection seats for a set of Aires. Although the original seats does not look bad.
19. April 2018 at 22:36:12
Cristian Bordina Wonderful job Mart... as always ;)
29. May 2018 at 07:55:42

Martien Lourens Thanks mates. @ Manuel. Everything fits well. Only the cockpit is somewhat poor detailed.
There is a lot of room for scratch building. also the decals are little for the aircraft. But there are many decals for the armament.

Clifford Keesler I have the Eduard Big ED set for the Tamiya F-4 for mine. Every thing looks like it will work.
08. April 2018 at 01:54:53
Clifford Keesler Martien, did you use the kit landing gear or Metal gear?
08. April 2018 at 01:56:03
Patrick Hagelstein That's one of the shortcomings of this kit, the landing gear is quite thin. The Tamiya is beefier.
08. April 2018 at 03:32:50
David Wallace Beautiful work, Martien! The ejection seats are awesome; look like the real thing!!
08. April 2018 at 12:59:15
Martien Lourens @Clifford: I have used the landing gear from the kit. And yes. The landing gear is very thin. but have made it stronger with pieces of sturdy plastic.
Thank you David.
08. April 2018 at 22:46:06
Clifford Keesler I am going to put metal rods in mine. (coat hanger). Hope mine turns out as nice as yours.
