08. April at 00:51:14
Michael Phillips Welcome Spanjaard and Taarna! I hope you find something of value in my experience with this.

Rv, thanks so much for the link! I went ahead and pre-ordered it. Now, I have learned that this is about 3 weeks or so from release, so this project is now on hold until I receive the part. So stay tuned, but for now I am going to start up a new project...

Michael Phillips Thanks James, Christian, and Christian. I am aaaaaaaalmost done. Just a couple little things left to do, one of which is the inside of the canopy. Not sure how to handle the curtain and padding... I will come up with something. I don't have Miliput like Alistair is going to use, so I will have to improvise.

Also, I wanted to make this really dirty and grimy, buuuuuut I may have taken it a little too far. Oh well. LOL I hope to post final pics tonight, so you all can be the judge of that then. :)
02. April at 21:11:35
Augie Looks bloody good from the pictures
02. April at 22:49:07
Alistair Graham you'll probably finish yours before i finish mine. I have somehow misplaced my Milliput which is the reason its been on the back burner. However i'm off on a wee North African work adventure for 4 weeks so nothing will happen till i get back anyhow. So ill be watching yours from afar. May have a desire to build more Ruskie stuff on return methinks!
02. April at 23:06:20
Alistair Graham I have to say these Master pitot replacements are first class, especially this one for the MiG-25. Looks like i will be heading there frequently in the future.
02. April at 23:10:59
Michael Phillips Thanks Augie! The pictures are actually all from before I went crazy with weathering. Eek!

Alistair, I feel ya on the Russky stuff, I am really into that right now. I love all jet aircraft, and the Tomcat is my favorite, but I do just love the bruteness and unique look of Russian Aircraft.

And yes, the Master Pitot is fantastic. It really is well worth the price and a great addition to the kit.
03. April at 00:54:56
Romain Flechon great work!!
05. April at 21:53:00
Alfredo Jurado Absolutely great work, Michael. One of my prefered aircraft in an excellent Work. I love that flying crate.

Michael Phillips Thanks Holger, Rom, and Michael!

LOL Michael, I have done the math, at my current build pace (and hopefully significantly slowing my purchase rate) I will build my stash in about 8-10 years. So as long as I live to my 50s I should be able to do just that!

Kurt Reichert Yes this was in the back of my mind. The soviets equip generally their exportet plains with lower engine, radar, avionic and so on.....
02. April at 23:36:19
Maciej Bellos From what I recall:
- Su-17 is the version as it served in USSR
- Su-22 is the designation for the export version of Su-17, different electronics and some equipment missing.
- the M3 uses the Tumanski R29 engine
- the M4 the Lyulka AL21 engine, which is a bit fatter than the the R29.
- Poland got the M4 version

I think that the kit can build only the M4 version since it has the rear fuselage for the AL21 engine.
However I suppose only rivet counter modelers will see that, since the difference in diameter of the two engines is a mere 3.2 cm which in 48th corresponds to less than 1 mm.

Mat
02. April at 23:37:14
Michael Phillips Thanks for the clarification Maciej, that is a fantastic post! That is exactly what I thought, the 17 and 22 M4s are basically externally the same. It's the M3s that are different. And since I am building a Polish M4, I am good to go with the kit parts. The kit does not come with the parts needed to build an M3.
03. April at 00:57:26
Kurt Reichert Thanks Maciej, this sounds good.
03. April at 08:44:32
Günther Debiscop Nice to know that.... The kit can stay on my whish list :)
03. April at 09:45:16
Christian Borchmann-Backhaus I will take a seat....
03. April at 14:06:29
Maciej Bellos In my previous post I think I made an error with respect to the "fatness" of the two engines. Well, wikipedia (it's a source sometimes) states that the AL-21F is 1000 mm in diameter while the R29 is 968mm. But, Yefim Gordons book mentions that the R29 was quite larger in diameter and despite it being a bit more powerful, the performance of the Su-22M (export version of the Su-17M3) was worse with the new engine. The Su-22M4 which was the export version of the Su-17M4 retained the Lyulka AL-21F engine, thus no changes were made at the rear end of the fuselage.

So the title Kitty Hawk used for the kit is 25% misleading. You can build a Su-17M3, a Su-17M4 and a Su-22M4 but not a Su-22M3.
03. April at 21:20:41
Michael Phillips Thanks for the update Maciej. This is good info for any looking to build this kit.

By the way, since my decals for this build are MIA in Australia right now, I went ahead and bought another sheet from a US seller. Soooooo, if anyone is interested in the Polish Su-22 sheet listed in this project, I might have one for sale when my original sheet finally arrives here, whenever (if) it does. LOL

Alistair Graham Nice model, love the cammo scheme.
02. April at 10:09:33
Michael Phillips Thanks Alistair, this was a really fun build. Looking forward to building another Tamiya F-16 one of these days. My next one will be an Ohio ANG Have Glass V scheme.
02. April at 21:08:40
Alistair Graham I have thought about doing one but so many manufacturers do an F-16, i would not know which is the best. Saying that, i am in process with the Tamiya IL-2 Shturmovik and the quality of these later kits is unbelievable. I love how the sprue attachment nubs are on the mating faces , e.g the wings, so once cut off no need to fettle the curvature of the wing as in a normal model.
02. April at 23:03:04
Michael Phillips The Tamiya is far and away the best 1/48 Viper, but the issue is they only do the C model up to Block 52. Anything with two seats, very early, or higher than a block 52 you will have to go with Kinetic or Hasegawa. I have not built a Kinetic F-16 yet, but I have built a Hasegawa, and that was an easy and enjoyable build.
03. April at 01:01:56
Alistair Graham Good advice thanks
