My collection of cheap guitars

Always wanted to exhibit my collection of cheap guitars. Cheap price not cheap sound. So here I go.

Eduard 1/48 Sukhoi 7 BMK Egyptian Air Force

Here it is at last. It have been working on this bird for a few months and I am glad it is finished now.
I wanted to make a dirty and sun-beaten Su-7 as this one was probably used during the six-days war and Yom Kippur war against Israel.
This model was quite of a pain: almost every single plastic part requires sanding, cutting or filling with some putty.  It was the first time that I used an airbrush for painting but I am quite happy with the result, even though I can still spot some mistakes in the painting or assembly.Will do better next time ;)

Paints used for camo:
- Light Blue Tamyia XF-23
- Tan Hobby color H-27
- Khaki green Hobby color H-80
- Mahogany Hobby color H-84

Oil paintings + drops of white/black or tan mixed with colors
