     The Kopro 1/48th Scale Su-17M3 (Su-22M3) kit is now quite hard to find but it has enjoyed many reboxings. The KP version has been commanding top dollar on EBay which is where I found this one. Luckily this wasn't so expensive as Buyers appear to have been put off by the older-style packaging. The contents (shown below) are in excellent condition. The kit (if you want it) seems to have been re-issued by OEZ, Revell, Italeri and Eduard. Aftermarket accessories include:

 

  • Neomega Resin Cockpit set (more expensive than the kit)

  • Cutting Edge Detail Set for OEZ Su-22M includes new Airbrakes, Wings and Tail

  • Cutting Edge Burner Can and Nozzle set (resin)

  • Cutting Edge Su-22M Super Detailed Cockpit Set CEC48079

  • Cutting Edge Black Magic Su-22M Canopy and Wheel Hub Masks set CEBM48185
