  1. Nice. We don’t see many Smer kits here. I don’t know how this compares to the Airfix kit in this scale, but the panel lines look better, although the aft rudder looks a little chunky in comparison. I think you’ve pushed this kit about as far as it can go!

    Thanks for posting.

  2. Aha….something with the whirly thing in the front this time…nice job, sir.

  3. Nice Allan! Very clean finish, and there’s something about those redless roundels that I really like (I’ve GOT to get around to building something with them…). I’ve built one SMER kit – an IL-2, and I seem to remember it going together decently. Some missing detail that I had to supply, but overall look and details were good. (here it is if interested: )

  4. Cool Spit. looks great in the silver finish.
