  1. Ok, maybe colours are not the proper ones, but I did my best to mix them as good as possible.
  2. I would say: too intensive colours. I tried to find proper mixes of Gunze paints, so that is the result...
  3. Regarding the engine exhausts (engine cowlings were more complicated to paint), you can find everything step by step in my work in progres here: I used white metallic base, oil paints, some hot metal Alclads and jet exhaust also from Alclad. Everything were been faded to darker shades with Mr. Paint' graphite metallic.
  4. That is true, that is why I am talking about Mr. Paint. This company manufactures many colours designed for models of russian jets and I do believe that their colours for Su-33 are really proper ones.
  5. My Russian language is rather poor, but I can not find any words regarding Mr. Paints colours there. I believe AKAN paints have proper hues, but I think the same is with Mr. Paints, and also I like to use it, because there are as excellent as Gunze or Tamiya products.
  6. Initially I wanted to build no. 80, but then I changed to 67.
  7. Many Su-33's has got tinted windshield.
  8. I do believe it was better to use Mr. Paints, better ones.
  9. Thank you guys. Regarding the camouflage colours, I tried to match something like this:
  10. My Su-33 is ready now. You can find it in my RfI here:
  11. Zvezda made very nice, perfectly fitted kit, but with some minor issues, like shallow and wide panel lines, or very coarse surface on some areas of plane. Beside this, making model was just a fun. Su-33 I have made out of box, with no aftermarkets, painted with Gunze, Tamiya and Mr. Paint paints. Here you can find some pictures of ready model.
  12. Plane has bee assembled, and now is ready for wash and weathering.
  13. Blue colour on nozzle petals is Alclad's Hot Metal Blue (and also the Violet), painted onto the bright metal background with a little W&N french ultramarine oil paint dabs. On engine cowlings there are mostly Mr. Paint colours, including Burnt Metal Blue and Violet.
  14. After a long break I have just finished engine cowlings. It was not so easy to make it like this, but I hope you like it. Engine exhausts are just dry fitted. Top: Bottom: I also try to prepare the stand:
