This was completed a while ago but for some reason I never got around to posting.
It involved all the usual fiddling to make things fit associated with A-Model products but the biggest problem was with the missile mountings. The inboard mount is in the wrong place. It should be opposite the 'bullet' on the wing leading edge. The outboard mounting is unrepresentative of the real thing. It should have tracks for the rollers on the missile fins to run in. I only discovered this after the model was 'finished' and I tried to mount the missiles. Correcting all this involved much handling which did nothing to enhance the Alclad finish.

Hi John,
impressive model anyway. It has some resemblance with the Su-15, but I suppose it is longer.
Regards
Massimo

Tough cookie, but a lovely model. Well done, John!
