1/48 SU 9 Fishpot

Beautiful model.

 

I am struggling very hard to resist the latest Trumpeter 1/48 Su-9U Maiden and Su-11 Fishpot releases. (If only Trumpy hadn't screwed up the Flagons I'd already have had a shelf devoted to Sukhoi PVO 1960s-1970s fighters.)

The forthcoming AMK 1/48 MiG-25RB recce Foxbat may force a retro scale modelling year - the first since 1992

p.s. bitten. I knew 1/48 had to carry a health warning on this site!

The kit goes together great, not like a Trump kit . As far as I can see they have done the 9 and 11 accurately unlike the Flagon kits, The only place that is weak is the cockpit which Red Star has covered the 9 cockpit is out and I am paitently waiting for the Su 11 cockpit so I can start that kit. Overall build is good perfect for Novice builders.

I guess you're referring to their earlier efforts.  If so, I agree.  Fit and engineering have improved a lot over the years and it is accuracy which is hit or miss (depending on where they got their references from).

 

 

I might hold off buying any more bits for that monstrosity if I were you.  Time will tell...

Don't tease, if you know what I know let's just say there might be a better kit coming along.  ;)

Jennings, tell me straight we're going to get an accurate Flagon. I wouldn't kill for it, but might consider coming pretty close!
