Thanks John, the steer was a helpful one. I ordered the Pavla seat and feel it will be a lot better than the kit seat. This is my first aircraft project in some years and I might have forgotten things like the nose weight. Who wants a tail sitter?

I hope you get back you your Fitter, I would like to see how it is coming along.

I have the Trumpeter Su-9 in 1/48 in mind for this campaign. It has a basic cockpit that could use a bit of zipping up. Someone had a complete resin set out but this seems to be gone now. Does anyone know of an ejection seat or set of belts that will work? I imagine the seat was used on other Soviet aircraft of the era but I do know this for sure.



Paul,
Initial production had the KS-1 ejection seat.
Later production used the KS-2 seat.
Final Su-9 production used the slightly improved KS-2A seat. Later, all surviving Su-9s were refitted with the KS-3 seat.

Pavla Kit S48013 KS-3/4

This one from Aires fits too,

I started that kit Trumpeter kit, make sure you add somee weight on the radar cone.
The wing flaps are fragile, I broke mine.
Research the paint guide for the missiles.

The fitting is nice, I really liked the detail on the surfaces.
A few months ago it fell to the ground and I lost my mojo and didn't finish it yet.
Just some pitot tubes and landing gear to add I finish the painting.
It's quite a simple straightforward build.

I've had this Italeri 1.72 Su-34 kit for a long time, glad to start building it. OOB except for the resin seats.

Michael, I would go for the top ribbon. Maybe add a blue or red background. The previous Sukhoi campaign used the new design with a Russian flag as background. I guess it should look different from the previous one.

Ryan, I build that kit some years back with a lot of after market stuff as well. It is a tough one. The fit is decent, but there are lot of things to improve! Looking forward to follow your build.

I just signed up, but have not decided yet on what to build.

Here is my entry:







It's a really big jet. I will build it the red 21 in Syria. I have to look which weapons does this jet carry.

And here's my entry (Su-15UM trainer):


Trumpeter kit from 2002. I think it has some accuracy issues, but I'll anyway build it out of the box. Haven't decided if it'll be in Ukraine or Russian markings.

Hi,
There are many choices in the Sukhoi family. I pick a pair of aircraft, Trumpeter Su-33UB and VES Model (?) Su-15TM in 1/72th scale.


Cheers,
K.

I'm all for the older version Michael, I'm thinking about building the ICM 1/48 Su-2 for this campaign.

A reminder that this campaign still doesn't have a ribbon. I've proposed a couple of different possibilities, including the older Suhoi logo:





And the newer one:





Of course, this ain't my campaign. Any preferences? Any other ideas? I just hate seeing that space on the campaign page stay blank.
