This is my build log for my 1/72 Zvezda SU-33 Flanker D. I decided to make this into Yellow 13 from Ace Combat 4. In the game, Yellow 13 flies an SU-37, but on a surface level, they appear the same. Here is the paint scheme I am using: Aug 19: Most of the body is built, cockpit is in and Exhaust nozzles are painted and weathered (somewhat). Aug 21: Wings are on (for now), base coat (Dark Ghost Grey) is down and the Radome is painted (Insignia semi-gloss white). Missiles are painted in semi gloss white base coat too. Sept 6: Took a bit of a break on this while working on my 1/72 F-15E. Back at it now. Laid down the underside puke yellow. Far and away my least favorite part of this paint scheme, but part of it nonetheless. Sept 9: Paint bleed! Lots of screw-ups at this point. Major setbacks in the build progress.
Hi all, just finishing up my first three models (all 1/72) and would like to move into a 1/48 for the next one. i love the Flanker series and am thinking about doing one of them next. Question is, what are the best fitting, best looking kits in this series, that I will not have to purchase too many aftermarket bits (excessive PE, and lots of inaccurate bits like radome (easy to buy aftermarket I know) etc. So priorities are good fit, good detail. Thanks!
What a kit by Kinetic. Usually over engineered and far too complicated this kit is sublime. With superb detail at every level and great decal options you cannot go wrong! The only let down with this kit are the instructions. They are poorly printed and leave you guessing on some stages! This is an out of the box build with the only addition being the eduard cockpit set. The paints are Hakata blue line Russian ST set and Vallejo and MIG metal paints. The base is Coastal kits display bases Admiral Kustinovof's deck..
