Hey,

I laid my eyes on the Smer Su-17/22M3 in 1/48 but I'm not able to find any information about it as far as accuracy, fit and the like go. Since the original KP make was good enough for Eduard to make a limited edition, I wouldn't expect too many problems.

Does anyone built this kit or any of its twins (KP, Kopro, Eduard, etc)?

Many thanks in advance!

Hi! as far as I know, this is the only game in town; I have build other Smer kits and they are Ok; Not Tamigawa but if you don't suffer from AMS, you will be pleased!!

Thanks, Byron! I might give this a try despite the rumors about a HobbyBoss new tooling offering coming up this year.

Thanks, Byron! I might give this a try despite the rumors about a HobbyBoss new tooling offering coming up this year.



Is there any substance to these rumors?
