Yom Kippur War…1/48 Sukhoi Su-7BMK Fitter, Iraqi Airforce
After the refreshed Latin American subjects from 2016, now on to a few from the Middle East.
Kopro kit, Wolfpack Design ejection seat (had to cut away several mm of it´s bottom because it is too tall), IFF antennas with plastic rods, Linden Hill decals, the underside color was an older selfmix my dad had standing around for some years (also used on the MiG), don´t know anymore what´s in it 🙂
the sand color was a “gut”mix with Tamiya XF-55 Deck Tan, XF-59 Desert Yellow and XF-60 Dark Yellow
the green was Gunze H405 Olive Green
Vallejo Metal Color Aluminium for the drop tanks and rocket pods.

The model shows an aircraft of No.1 Squadron, IrAF, stationed in Syria during the October War in 1973.
