Sukhoi Su-22; MasterCraft 1/72

October 17, 2018 · in Aviation · · 7 · 4.7K

As this year is the 50th aniversary of the invasion of Checoslovaquia, I built this model with their colors.
This plane is quite special to me, for some reasons:
1- It was a gift from my friend Jorge.
2 - It was my first Russian fighter ever.
3 - It was quite a challenge: bad fits, details and parts out of scale, and so on.
But, to honour my friends gift, I tried my best. As usual, did some modifications.
At the end had much fun.
