Bart Goesaert Looking good. Will you go for the metal finish, or will it be a camouflaged one?
30. November 2018 at 14:10:42
Martien Lourens 10-6-2019 After a long time of filling , sanding and engraving of the panel lines. I could glue the engines on the hull.

Martien Lourens I I'm sanding the wings with grit 1000. And hope to give the plane the vallejo black base layer for the alu paint, this week...........maybe.
10. July at 20:07:18
Bart Goesaert Enjoy, hopefully no visible scratches then.... that's always a risk...
11. July at 09:49:04
Martien Lourens @ Bart. Never had any problems Bart. With normal paint, I sand with waterproof grit 800. And metalic paint with grit 1000. Never had visible scratches.

Spanjaard excellent fulcrums, fantastic.
14. September 2016 at 22:12:45
Kerry Cox Martien, You certainly have a gift for bringing out the recessed lines and overall 'used' look, and with the hard stand it is presented on, it's hard to tell fact from fiction. :)
Great work mate, as with all you builds.
14. September 2016 at 23:27:16
Łukasz Gliński Nice one, what colours did you use?

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.

10. December 2018 at 18:54:23
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
