1/48 ESCI Su-7 Fitter

Hi from Turkey. This kit is very nice. It has full interior details and I took full advantage of this with some careful cockpit painting.

I think it's skill level is 3. It has only an eight piece decal set. Six stars and two numbers only.  I chose a bare metal Russian jet and applied some weathering to various areas to add realism.  

You can make two different positions for canopy. Open or closed.  The ladder was a nice touch and I painted it red with some chipped paint on the steps going up the ladder.

To finish my Su-7 Fitter I gave it drop tanks and a full weapons load and displayed it with the airbrakes deployed in the open position.

Enjoy the photos.
