Sweet set up Winston! I am going to buy the Red Star upgrades soon for my Su-9. AK Interactive has a new paint set for Soviet A/C 1950-70 that includes the Sukhoi cockpit gray and the Radome green.

If you are getting the cockpit also order the Mr Color paints Red star has for the russian colors, Best paints I've used yet. They have the Green for wheels and nose cones along with the Su grey blue and Mig Turquise Blue.

Winston,

Your Fishpot looks great!

Man, where have I been? I didn't know anyone made a 1/48 SU-9. I gotta get one. Now, if only we can get a nice injection 1/48 Flashlight or Firebar!

Keeping my fingers crossed Xutong is coming out with the IL 28 and possibly some of the others. Trump also has a nice Su 11.

Winston, excellent job! I have the same kit and I noticed that the decals lack the white and red border on the stars. Trumpeter forgot I guess. But a nice build, nonetheless.

I noticed that as well but the Heavy Interceptor and the SU books I have by Yefim Gordon show most VVS planes didn't have the white border, Just Tac and Strategic aircraft. VVS is the Soviet version of our ADC from what I remember. Thanks this kit was alot of fun to build glad you like it Now to build the 11 and the Mig 25
