Watching too... Not a great fan of jets, but I like exotic subjects (not to mention abandoned planes) like this one or your Indonesian Il-28... Thumbs up for your choices... 👍

Interesting. Pic #10 looks more like Su-20 btw.

There is no pic #10 yet??

Latest discovery - the decals for the instrument panel are much larger than the instrument panel. Everything about this kit is kind of a WTF, the instructions are clearly wrong, no locating pins, lots of sinkholes, etc. I believe I picked it up because it was cheap, and a Sukhoi.

Following. A KP is always a challenge but back in the day it was kind of the only way to get a decent eastern block subject.

Ah! It's just a similar paint scheme I found. Since the decals in this kit are ancient and yellowed, I looked for a prototype with no markings. I'll figure this kit out. When I was a kid I built a kp mig 15 uti. I recall much putty was required.

I tried all this, hung them for a month in a south facing window, no change. I have realized that even with the micro scale stuff they simply don't fit. They are the wrong size - too big. It is hilarious.

It is nice indeed and worth a try. Sometimes the decals are too bad for it to work, but usually it helps. Just don't spray it if it's too thick (my case), it's hard to de-clog the airbrush afterwards.

Hey KP why is it called a Fitter if nothing fits? 🙂

Did all the little external scoops and conduits, now time for major assembly.

If it weren't for the beast of a kit, with that Afghan museum paint scheme, it would be a really cool model to build. I hope this heap of KP plastic is not giving you nightmares then. ;)

you are managing to make out of this old kit a quite good result so far !

Didn't turn out great but I learned a lot about airbrushing, trying to mix colors, masking and the total futility of trying to shoot thinned model color ????
