  1. Great Wall Hobby (GWH) is to release a 1/72nd Sukhoi Su-35S "Flanker-E" kit - ref. L7207 Sources: https://www.facebook.com/groups/MilitaryModelingSRG/permalink/2441443966071479/ https://www.facebook.com/yufei.mao.940/posts/756092534907774 And a bunch of pics: https://www.facebook.com/yufei.mao.940/media_set?set=a.756092464907781&type=3 V.P.
  2. Hi everyone,this is my latest finish.simply oob.great wall's kit is very nice with great detail and above 600 decals.
  3. Here is another Flanker project I have launched recently. If you follow my other topics that I have started in this forum, you may ask why I am launching a new one before completing existing ones. Each of these projects has some specific issues to be solved to continue (mostly based on casted parts with aged bleeding resin which was my fault not to check it's shelf life) and therefore they have to wait until the problem does not exist anymore. I hope it will not last too long Here the aim is to build Su-30MK No:603 using Heller Su-27UB kit with minimum modifications (we will see ) I have already made 3 view drawings of Su-30MK No:603 as given below: The next step will be to map camo onto model. Serkan
  4. Since long time I was looking for a resin conversion set to build Su-27M series and Su-35UB (which was a movie star of "Mirror Wars: Reflection One") and finally I found a set with Academy Flanker kit included in ebay... Both the kit and conversion set were in top condition and I was really happy what I got for 60€: For this twin seater conversion I will use one of my MHM kit waiting in basement for several years. It won't hurt much if I ruin the kit after such massive butchery... Serkan
  5. Rumour: Great Wall Hobby (GWH) is reported working on a 1/48th Sukhoi Su-27 "Flanker" family. Source Yufei Mao aka Haneto facebook: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=530620570788306&set=a.243061249544241&type=3&theater Wait and see. V.P.
  6. Aviation Art (or another new brand) Minibase Hobby Corp. should release a new tool 1/48th Sukhoi Su-33 "Flanker-D" kit. The developpers team is reported to be the same having designed the Su-33 kit project purchased and produced by Kinetic. They are now fixing several details and errors and expect/hope to produce their own new kit from the "Flanker-D". The devil is in the details... To be followed. Hence my question: do we really need another Su-33/J-15 kit after the Kinetic efforts (Su-33 J-15) and Trumpeter soon to release models (link)?

  7. Stencil Decals for Su-27 (D48082) 1:48 Eduard Decals Eduard’s stencil range has been growing steadily of late, providing sharp, detailed stencilling for numerous types, some of which are lacking from the originating manufacturer’s box. The latter can come in handy for your average modeller, as sometimes the kit doesn’t include a complete set of stencils for expediency or whatever reason. Some folks, myself included, think that the inclusion of a full suite of stencils adds extra realism to a model, although there is of course the time element and the extra carrier film edges to hide. Eduard have been busy of late and have released this comprehensive set we have to review. It arrives in a clear foil re-sealable envelope with a card stiffener, a cover page with instructions, plus the decals with wax paper protecting the delicate printed surface. This set arrives on two sheets, and will fit any of the Academy, Kitty Hawk, Hobby Boss or Great Wall Hobby kits, and over the course of six profiles from overhead, underneath, and the sides, plus a page of pylon profiles, the locations of all the many stencils are shown clearly on coloured line drawings. There are also scrap diagrams detailing the placement of decals on the inside faces of the engine nacelles, fins, gear bay doors and the air-brake for ultimate detail. The decals are printed in-house by Eduard and have good register, sharpness and colour density, with a glossy carrier film printed close to the edges of the printed areas. Highly recommended.

  8. Here goes the (almost complete) WIP for my GWH twin-sticker Flanker. I used Galaxy Model masks for the pixel camouflage, Galaxy masks again for masking quite a lot of stuff, Foxbot decals and MRP paints. Here we go. The cockpits are painted MRP Sukhoi cockpit blue-grey, and I used the kit decals with quite the dose of Tamiya extra-strong decal softener. The gear bays are painted MRP Chassis Grey and the various bits are painted using Gunze. The nose gear bay has been cleaned quite a bit since I took this pic. The gear bays are glued to the belly of the beast: And both cockpits are glued to its back. I kept the sprue on the wings as long as I could to avoid breaking the static dischargers (and as I only broke one, I'm pretty proud of myself). The belly and the back go together without any fuss. And the intake assemblies go seamlessly. The radome needs a bit more attention. And then it's masking time. Or should I say era? Fins are assembled and glued, stabilators are just snapped in place. This is a big one. Canopy is masked. Main gear door are glued in place using a tiny drop of CA glue. I took the nose gear door I didn't intend to use, cut everything that protruded from it, and snapped it in place. The belly pale blue was sprayed and the gear doors removed. The base blue for the back followed. It's an entertaining shade... And now, masking. Again. The grey and the dark blue are sprayed in thin coats to avoid buildups around the masks. Unmasking a tailplane: Good! Now unmasking the rest of the plane. One thing, though. If you don't spray everywhere you need to spray, you're up an entertaining creek without a paddle. Guess what? I lost my paddle. And once everything has settled down: It is now time for some more masking. Masks away! Now for the interesting metal effects at the rear. I know it's been a long time, so why don't I put some more masks? Then a coat of Mr Surfacer 1500 Black followed by a coat of Zero Paint generic TS14 : Then MRP Titanium and Dark Aluminum. There are dark blueish stripes on these parts, I made them using a blue Sakura pencil. And after a thin coat of heavily thinned black, the masks are removed. Let's go for the nozzles. First, a primer coat of Mr Surfacer 1500 Black, then some MRP FS36081. Then the petals are masked (yeah, I know). Inside is painted white. Outside gets some Gunze Super Stainless and a thin coat of MRP Burnt Iron. Then goes a black oil wash, and I played with my red and blue Sakura pens, and a couple dozens of Q-tips. Everything is dulled using a photoetch stencil through which I sprayed MRP Exhaust soot. The stencil and the exhaust soot treatment is applied to the fuselage. Decals! And here is what the kit looks like now. Right now, I'm painting and decalling the missiles. Guess what? I got some more masking to do... S.
  9. WIP is there: The pics: The Galaxy masks for the canopy, panels, missiles and engine area are extremely helpful. If you intend to build a GWH or Minibase Flanker, get some. The Galaxy masks for the digital camouflage are extremely cleverly designed, and almost idiot proof (I know, I used them). From what I saw, their design is better than the Foxbot ones. While we're talking Foxbot stuff, their decals are excellent. I used them rather than Galaxy and GWH ones when I could. MRP paints are as usual, ie excellent. The kit is one of the best designed kits I've ever seen. Can't wait for the next GWH Flankers (the Flanker B is on its way). Cheers, S.
  10. I haven't posted anything in this section for a while but I've decided that this is about to change. Brand new GWH kit of the Su-27UB in 1:48 and from my initial inspection, I am quite certain you can make it into outstanding looking model without use of any aftermarket products. Progress is slow as I have a bunch of exams at work in the near future and parenting and other hobbies take a toll, but still, I am gaining momentum with this build nevertheless. First completed piece is front gear well - I am doing an early version of the UB so I've chosen the open bay with all the piping and structure visible but GWH provides a closed well for later versions as well.
  11. Hi everyone This is my 1/48 SU-30SM by Kitty Hawk. This was a very nice kit to build with great detail. The fit was good, only having large gaps on the air intakes and air brake. I had read reviews about the other su-27 and su-30 kits missing axles for the wheels but mine came with them so I'm guessing they have fixed it. The instructions did have a few mistakes, the paint guide didn't show the camouflage on the underside and showed the registration number from one of the other aircraft. The decals were decent but some of them took a few applications of micro sol to make them conform. Some of the yellow decals were very thin and clear so when applied to the model, they went a lot darker and hard to see, this was the same with some of the red ones. There were also some yellow decals that looked more of an orangey colour, I don't think they are meant to be that colour on the real aircraft but I could be wrong. The weathering made the orangey decals less obvious and orange which was good. For weathering, I decided to try something different to what I normally do. I applied a black oil wash on a gloss varnish, then coated it in matte varnish. I used small dots of white oil paint on the panels which I blended with a wet brush to try to make faded areas. I am happy with how this turned out. It was then coated in a matte varnish again. Thank for looking

  15. Hello everyone! This is P-42 (former T-10-15 Su-27 demonstrator modified to set time to climb records) in 1/144 scale. Base kit is Trumpeter, with some chopping done to align with the original airframe. Anything that was not essential to the very basic purpose of flight - including paint finish - was removed. Tips of vertical stabilizers, ventral fins, IR dome, tail sting - are all gone, so are most of antennas. In 1986-7 the P-42, equipped with uprated engines which along with other modifications gave thrust to weight ratio of ~2.0, set series of time-to-climb records, beating those set in 1975 by likewise lightened and stripped out F-15 Streak Eagle. This model served as a prototype for Shelf Oddity brass Time and place: Thanks for watching! Leszek
  16. Hello fellow modellers, I want to acquire the 1/32 Trumpeter Su-27B single seater for a build I want to do. However, I am aware of most of the errors (intakes etc.) on the kit that were corrected on later two seat versions released by Trumpeter. Can anybody here tell me if Trumpeter actually released the single seater with the corrected parts at any stage. It makes sense that, given the fact that they made new molds, these parts could have been included in later boxings of the single seater. If so, how would I know if it has (kit number maybe?). Thank you in advance Regards Victor
  17. Hello all, Here is another Flanker "what-if" project I would like to share with you. After casting the front upper and lower halves of Su-27IB modification, a funny "what if" project came into my mind: Su-27KIB/Su-33IB!... A little update to original post: Су-27КИБ/Су-33ИБ "корабельный истребитель-бомбардировщик" Su-27KIB/Su-33IB "Korabyelny Istrebityel Bombardirovshchik" - "Shipborne Fighter Bomber" The idea is to combine Su-27IB nose with Su-33 rest parts left from T-10M conversion butchery: The casted Su-27IB parts seem to fit Su-33 rear fuselage halves without having big issues: To be continued Serkan
  18. Next HobbyBoss 1/48th Flanker is expected in late November 2016. and it's a Sukhoi Su-30MKK "Flanker-G" - ref.81174 Source:http://www.hobbyboss.com/index.php?g=home&m=article&a=show&id=75&l=en Box art Kostas what have you done? Definitely not your best art work. V.P.
  19. Here is an another Flanker restoration project. I had a partially built Italeri Flanker which I got as a part of auction. Although this model has a lot of known shape issues (incorrect air intakes, too big canopy, very fat radome etc...) still I decieded to give it a chance (at least to test camo pattern templates and custom made decal). Serkan
  20. While I was sorting out the kit rest and spare parts left from massive kit butchery for various Flanker conversions reported in my other topics here, I have realized that I can build my own Flanker version by combining these parts. It will be a kind of creating a Frankenstein, therefore I have called this project as "Flankerstein". I hope you will like it. Serkan
  21. Good afternoon, Below my efforts on the wolfpack SU-27 Flanker, of the Russian Knights. While I mostly enjoy propeller planes, I could not resist the fantastic lines of this plane. Thanks for looking and comments more than welcome. CF
  22. Zvezda's next Flanker is a 1/72nd Sukhoi Su-30SM "Flanker-H" - ref. 7314 Source: https://vk.com/wall-29859496?own=1&w=wall-29859496_2259338 V.P.
  23. Hi All, This post will have several first's in it for me. This is the first time I have completed a Zvezda kit and the first time I've used Vallejo model air paint. I thought this would make it an ideal model to be the first I share on a forum. The kit went together nicely with no major modification or extra parts used. I am however a little less happy with the Vallejo paint. I wanted to try them since they now offer a range of colours that match various flanker schemes nicely. I found however that they were harder to airbrush and get the thinning right. Often, they would feel slightly rubbery after drying. I thinned them very slightly with tap water which may have been the problem but if anyone else has experienced this or has any other tips on using Vallejo model air they would be greatly appreciated. What do you think of the finished model and do you have any tips on how it could be improved? (please excuse any subpar photography) Thanks br60066
  24. As I am a model enthusiast, I cannot live without thinking a new project even at see side in vacation house for summer break. The only material here I have is my laptop. But it is sufficient to make drawings of any future project. I have already done the drawings of one of my near future project namely Su-27LL which can be found here. The another one will be "Record Aircraft" P-42. At the beginning I have underestimated how this aircraft could be difficult to finish. In terms of kit modifications this is really easy task. But finishing is really a big challenge (most probably a nightmare). Here below the 3 view drawings I did based on available pictures. The panels after paint removal has different shades of aluminum as well as green primary coating. I thought I can use one of Revell/Zvezda Su-27SM for this conversion but due to significant effect of rivets most probably I will go with Trumpeter early Su-27 kit. Any recommendations or comments about drawings and kit selection are welcome. Serkan
  25. As I am currently on summer vacation till beginning of August I have no chance to progress on my currently ongoing builds. But hence I have my notebook with me I can still make some brainstorming for my future projects. I have some deformed airframe parts from T-10M conversions due to wrong heat treatment process of self casted resin parts in oven. I have decided to use them for Su-27LL conversion which looks also very distinguished with her blue/gray paint scheme. I have made 3 view drawings based on available pictures in internet. But I could not found any reference pictures of real aircraft which show top and bottom surfaces. The only material I have is the instruction sheet from Begemot Decals. But still I have some doubts especially for upper surface. Here are my drawings with available data I have: I would like to build the aircraft displayed in 2013 MAKS. Any feedback/comments about the above drawings will be highly appreciated. Serkan
