  1. Su-35S and Su-30MKI 1/48 builds

    What's that reference book your using?
  2. Italeri 1:72 Su-34 Fullback +++FINISHED+++

    Never mind 😉 great progress!
  3. HT's Trumpeter 1/72 SU-34 - Abandoned

    Nice to the Trumpy Su-34 is made between the several italeri's allready in progress!
  4. 1/48 KH Su-35 Flanker

    Nice work! How do you accentuate the dials and knobs in the cockpit? They do come with decals but this looks much better imho.
  5. Indeed, I really hope i'm doing it justice... Not to speak of the complex engine metallic paintjob... It makes me doubt if i can make it really happen.
  6. Hi Muzz, For sure this was the most exotic Camo I saw in real life, however the Ukrainian splinter Camo on '30' last april came closely second. Never thought i'd see such colors myself. However on the intakes, looks i did it right, the hinge is at the back and when not deployed, the fences lay on the bottom of the intake. Although with 30MKI's. So I guess it's right for this one too... Greetings!
  7. Flanker reference thread

    Ok, i found that it's correct, although for a Su-30MKI, but i presume they are the same as older 27UB's?
  8. Flanker reference thread

    Hello, I don't have any reference to share but I hope requests for reference are allowed too. I'm building a Su-27UB 'in flight' and was trying to figure out how the FOD fences work inside the intakes. Am I right to assume they fold flat over the louvered intakes at the bottom of the intakes, with the back being the hinge and the front tilting upward to the top of the intake trunking? So, can I say my dryfit representation for an inflight FOD screen which I made here is correct or am I overseeing something? (the 3 holes behind it are to be filled yet) I hope Flankerman or any other Flankerophyl's can answer my question Thank you!
  9. Good evening fellow modellers, I thought i share some cellphone pictures of this project. Here it goes: the subject, which i photographed 2 days before it crashes. (I took a picture of the print to be quicker) the decals the box the spinning engines recreation the folded intake guards made to fit in flying position. Greetings!
  10. Hello, Once again I'll try to build a model. And how iconic would it be when they first model in years finished would be a Flanker. So off it goes. I cut out some parts from the intakes and started to adjust the engine fronts as it's going to be flying! Photoshopped some turning fans to go in the intakes as well. Photo's soon! Greetings! Typo edit 😉
  11. Italeri 1/72 Su27D Sea Flanker - COMPLETED

    Hi, Nice progress and that cockpit looks good too. Did you use any aftermarket for it? The reference picture you say to finish it alike is from a Su-30MK, to be more exact, the brother or even 'the' ill-fated Paris Flanker in '99. Mind that these colors are never used on a naval Su-33. But offcourse you paint your model like you would like eh 😉

    Olimp has a set with weapons and decals, or authentic does a decalsheet as well. Don't know if begemot has released a sheet for the 34 yet.
  13. Flanker STGB chat

    depends on what proto you are willing to do, as the first (with the Su-27P style tail) is a bit difficult, but however the Italeri kit is based on the later proto's which the '343' is an example. The colors I don't know if they are really the same as some of the earlier operational planes. Question is, if it's because the poor quality pictures from the earlier pre-production planes rather than other paint used... Greetings!
  14. Flanker STGB chat

    I have about 4 different flankers (2 trumpy's double seaters and 2 Revell Su-27SM's) and hope to finish one before the end of this year but i don't promise a thing here. A few are started, but nowhere close to 20%. The 4 possibles are the ill-fated Belarussian Su-27UB, a Venezolan Su-30MKV, a Russian 'vanilla' Su-27SM or the original Russian black-grey-white Su-30KI demonstrator (not the '305'). The single seaters are started. Greetings!
