Hello my friends, Six months after returnig home from DR Congo and 3 weeks of COVID, I was able to restart my zorks on the workbench. Now, I present to you this build. The 1/48 Sukhoi SU-24 Fencer from Trumpeter with the Algerian Air Force markings. I must confess; this kit is a great disappointement. It needs a lot of work of corrections and putty. I uesd eduards exterior PE, it was necessary... Algerian roundels and serial numbers are home made decals. I used Tamiya acrylics with this composition : for the light blue : XF2 (Flat white 95%) + X4 (Blue 5%). For the khaki/brownish : XF49 (Khaki 80%) + XF10 (Flat brown 20%). And finally just for the green : XF61 (Dark Green). Here is a picture of a real Algerian Fencer before they painted them with Desert camo : The model : Cheers !
Ukraine Digital Fencer
Lightningboy2000 posted a topic in Ready for Inspection - AircraftThis has been a long time coming for me, purchased this Trumpeter 1/72 Su-24M kit back at the beginning of 2018. Then some time later purchased the Foxbot mask set & decals from Authentic. This is something that I've always wanted to see finished in my collection despite being a daunting subject with the airbrush. The Authentic decal set has all the digital markings as decals, but to my eye all the colours just didn't look right, so it just had to airbrushed. The only other aftermarket was the obligatory Master brass pitot. Here's the colors I used, I purchased the Hataka set for the Ukraine digital schemes, but the matches didn't quite match up to what they said should be applied to what. The FS numbers referenced on the Foxbot mask set also didn't match up to actual colors, so i took as many greys as I could & made a sheet of swatches to see how they looked, then selected each one by eye. The base light upper grey was Mig-226 with some added white to the mix as the real color is a really light ivory grey. Next upper colors; Vallejo 70.907 for the blue grey Hataka A189 Hataka A249 Hataka A030 The nose; Hataka A335 The underside was Hataka A334 To my eye all the colors look correct, but taking photos that represent real life is tricky when trying to set the right color temperature on the camera. Taken using a 6400K daylight bulb & white balance set as close to that as I practically could. Thanks for looking, I won't be doing any more digital schemes for a while! Martin
