Jeeeeez! :biggrin: kinda makes you wonder why this dude beat my Flanker at the recently convened Soviet 72nd category at the Butch O'hare nationals here in Chicago!

This particular model was by Paul Hackman! one of our IPMS members and now a retired Tomcat RIO. :)

He happened to escort one of these out a U.S. Naval exercise area near the Sea of Okhotsk during the late 80's! :)

P.S. According to him this 'Brewer' was fairly manouverable! This 'Brewer' won first place! :)

I would have marked him down for that finish...

No Soviet aircraft had a natural metal finish that fine. lol

IRL finish looks almost exacly like that.

A superb model.
