Modeling a Sukhoi-17 in Blender

Here's a couple shots of the model I've been working on, an old Soviet Sukhoi-17 attack fighter:

Su-17 flat color render

Su-17 partial texture render
I'm pretty happy with this model, it went pretty quickly. I have some good reference, some really comprehensive 1/72 scale model ortho drawings that I found online, so it was pretty easy to build "tracing" over those images. The texture paint is a very quick rough out using my first try at UV Unwrapping, which I need to learn more about. The particular method I used stretches the pixels along the top and bottom centerlines, so I need to figure out a better way.

OK bedtime. I'll update this again soon.
