Default Gaincorp 1/48 Scale SU-30MK Flanker

Hi guys,
Thought you might want to see this one. I received it from China at the end of last year and it was heavily damaged. With all the snow & ice in St. Louis the last couple days and work being called off Tuesday, I decided to try my mediocre at best modeling skills and make something out of it. It turned out pretty good and I think I'll go ahead and display it. The model is very large at 18" long and 11" wide.

nice pic of a beautiful model....1/48 scale looks great but due to lack of space...i personally chose 1/72 in which I prefer ,to accomodate lots of my collection in my display shelves

Thank you Aeroeng for your prompt reply

I always love to see two seats Sukhoi from Gaincorp since the canopy is not too wide compare to Gaincorp & Witty single seat and it make this model resemble the real one better. And it even looks better in flight with the gears up since IMHO the nose landing gear is a little bit taller (or the other main gears is a little bit short) than it suppose to be and make the nose up rather than down but it is for 1/72 scale not sure for Gaincorp 1/48.
