Sukhoi,

Anything is possible. This one will be a lot of work.

Just as the model was being released, we at Fotocut got a shot of it and sent it our "techie" and he said it was so inaccurate that it wouldn't be worth doing a detail set.

Wrong geometry and more, I forget what-all(this was a few years ago, mind).

It is a very nice kit, with its removable engine cover panel and all... a pity.

I would suggest you join the wwi group(I get their digests) and ask around.


Their info:

Send WWI mailing list submissions to wwi@wwi-models.org

To subscribe or unsubscribe via the World Wide Web, visit http://www.wwi-model...an/listinfo/wwi
or, via email, send a message with subject or body 'help' to wwi-request@wwi-models.org

That group is friendly and knowledgeable. Although they mostly do smaller scales, there are a few 1/32 and larger afficianados there.

Happy Modeling!
Happy Modeling!

Hi Sukhoi,
There was a reasonable correction article in FSM some time back that should help you out.
Following are the scans I have made of it some time ago

Glad I could help.
In it I don't think he mentions fixing the prop which is oversize as well.
Have a look at the CopperState Models site.

You can get a really nice wooden prop as well as some detail sets and decals.

Ol' Etcher Fred does some nice spandau jackets also, used them on my Roden triplane.

Cheers

Tim

Sukhoi, Copper state is the place to go, as they have the PE, wooden props, and good lozenge decals. I built one w/o all the corrections, but have a couple more. Your kit has the individual guages on the decal sheet. This is mine, not perfect, but lookin DVII- ish.
