1/72 Cooperativa Sukhoi SU-9B

by Oliver Weston



Just a quick one this. Cooperativa's 1:72 rendition of Sukhoi's venerable SU-9 Fishpot B.  Built straight out of the box with no real issues.  Only bug bear I had was the kit decals fell to bits when I tried to apply them, so I used some aftermarket SU-7 decals I had instead.  Interestingly this kit came with a sheet of photo etched brass parts.  Never used them before and I must admit I found some of them tricky to fit. 

On the look out for a 1:72 SU-11 to go with my collection of Cold War jets, anybody know who does one? Answers on a postcard please.
