  1. They could mate! The antennae are all light ghost grey. Not sure if this is correct but from reference photos it looks a pretty good match. They certainly aren't white! Dave
  2. Also just found out that this jet hit 12,000 flight hours during 'Inherent Resolve' last year. Article here.
  3. Long overdue update and we're getting there. Airframe all painted, ready for gloss coat: Note the lighter grey rudder - not sure if this particular jet had a C model replacement rudder, but i've seen images of jets with one in place and thought it looked good. I've also added some light 'patches' across parts of the model. Hard to see but you can just make some of it out below the cockpit area. Remaining sub assemblies glossed and ready to be added: Tanks and pylons also given a panel line wash. Close up of the exhausts: Landing gear: A note on the decals. I've noticed that they aren't quite correct for the jet I plan to build - 890487 - flagship of the 335FS. The Authentic decals do not include the '335th FS' part for the tail fins so I've ordered a set of these to get the correct tail fin decals and some other details. Until their arrival, I'll add the stencils etc. More soon. Dave
  4. HB su47

    72nd or 48th?
  5. Italeri 1/72 Su27D Sea Flanker

    Good work and swift progress!

    Great news! Please let me know your thoughts on the masks. When you get that far of course
  7. Tentative 1/48 Academy Su-30M2

    Nice entry. These kits built up well with a bit of patience. If I may, i'd suggest adding the Quickboost resin nose cone as the Academy offering is slightly off.
  8. At this moment, this kit isn't going to make it over the finish line in time unfortunately.
  9. Nothing to show on this one as i've been away for a few days and work has kept me fairly busy with limited days off. I'm hopeful i'll still get this done in the time limit.
  10. 1/48 KH Su-35 Flanker

    Cheers Muzz. They seem to be out of stock at the moment. Will have to wait and see if they pop up again.

    That's a shame about the plastic, would have liked to have seen this go together and your thoughts on the Foxbot decals and masks as i've these in the stash also.
  12. Flanker STGB chat

    As far as I'm aware, the Su-47 was derived from the Flanker in some shape or form for testing so don't see why it can't be included here. Dave
  13. Flanker STGB chat

    I haven't been on the forum in the last few days and haven't been commenting on all the builds. I am following though in case you all thing i'm a poor host Dave
  14. They were very good mate, I tend to paint the yellow bands on the bombs.
