Sukhoi Su-7 BKL Fitter walkaround (Aviation Museum of Riga)

I started my model of the Sukhoi 7 (Eduard 1/48) a few weeks before visiting the museum and I really felt strange when i got to see the real bird for the first time, like "Did I shrink ?". This bird is so ugly that I love it. Here is the non-export version of the Su-7. Enjoy !

Supplementary fuel tanks.
Su-7 ladder. I have been looking for this pic to finish my model :-)
Note that the ladder is supposed to be on portboard

Northrop P-61 Black Widow - Pictures Compilation

The Northrop P-61 Black Widow night fighter is definitely my favorite aircraft. The idea here is just to provide a few interesting pictures on the subject (see below for credits).

The P-61 was the first aircraft specifically designed  with a radar


The radar cone was not painted on the first aircraft and was made of fibreglass.
