Flying Su-34 1/144 trumpeter

Recommended Posts

This project arose while talking with a friend about the possibility of making a small plane would look like a real one (like on films) with the right weathering and photography.

And this is the result is this: a Su-34 trumpeter with huge panel lines that i hid with lights and shadows. I cut flaps and canards to leave them in flight position Painted with humbrol enamels.

Awesome! How did you get the sky blue background and lose the shadows? I'm assuming you didn't go outside on a nice day and toss your model in the air...

thank you for your coments! i really appreciate that.

Well, the trick is to use a real environment light (it is very difficult to falsify an environment) so what I did was go outside and take photographs using daylight. Thus I already had 80% of the work done. The rest was just erase my hand in Photoshop. In conclusion it is best to take the picture with the right environment from the beginning, so the work will keep its real essence.

The orginal colours were trully diferent as you can si in the picture. Most of the final color was done through weathering. Anyway colors were: -----Dark blue: humbrol 109---- ---- Light blue: humbrol 89 + light grey & white (don't remember the % sorry :( ) ---- -----Lightest blue: humbrol 109 + a lot white ------

Great stuff, well executed. And thanks for the explanation!

I think we'll see a few others trying this before long. I am well capable of the Photoshop part, creating a 144th model with this level of detail however...

Amazing what weathering does to the paint job, the final product doesn’t even look like the original! The trench-y panel lines seem to have disappeared and the colors look so much better. Also ’magic’ photoshop-ing! Great work again and thanks for the color call out!
