1:72 Scale Mastercraft Su-17M3

Recommended Posts

Built as an aircraft used in Afghanistan.

Fit was alright, notthing special but not awful either.

However, I did have an oops moment with the painting.

I didn't move it far enough away from the spraying area as I soon saw silver speckles on it. Can't get it off either.

Lesson learned. I don't do weathering, but I will call it battle worn.

Afterwards I thought the lightest shade of the camouflage looked a bit too light as the mastercraft instructions interpretation of tan turned out to be more of a light sand colour.

Armament is from the dragon weapon sets. 2x AS-7 Kerry missiles and 2x S-25 large calibre rockets and 2x tanks.

Build photos.
