denne Stay away from this model! it's a major pita. The putty I had to throw on that thing is worth more than the kit itself. So drop the xtra-cash and get modelsvit's tu-22. Although I don't know it, modelsvit must be far better than this one.
Soeren . Count me in and good luck.
Sadly the kit has a lot of shape errors etc....

Wilfried Bogaerts Hi Maciej, will go for the Lybian Air Force camo with plain green markings. It's not the type of kit to do a NMF imho. Got myself the Revell boxing decal sheet as the green is way more accurate compared to Italeri, the Italeri markings are too dark. Revell's decals are more a bright green and is far more authentic.
@ Sören, it's not a putty monster (so far...), fit is not perfect but I have seen much worse. About the shape, well, I'm not going to loose sleep on it . In the end it will be a Blinder and I'm more interested in the camo scheme.
Scott Dutton Great book, read about 3 times myself. My favorite is the coordinated attack on the Carrier battle group.
Love the Tom Clancy stuff (miss him, though lost some of my respect when he did the co writing stuff with Op Centre)
Choppa Nutta cool !
looks like something out of Thunderbirds !

Scott Dutton Julian, It was my first resin plane, so hard to compare. The canopy wasn't brilliant from memory, but the biggest issue is not the build, its the survivability. The undercarriage legs are very weak and the kit is quite heavy. I have never transported it as I think and shear force (sideways movement) will snap them.
I was considering putting a brad rod down the side as a support I was so concerned but I haven't as yet.
