Trumpeter Su-27B Flanker in 1/32nd. scale

Recommended Posts

Good morning Britmodeller-land

Here's another one that's taken the edge off my enforced leisure time. I bought this kit at the Tyneside show from models4sale at the knock-down price of £75.

All OOB, no corrections, as I definitely can't afford the Zactomodels correction sets. :).

Painted in a mixture of Tamiya, Lifecolor and Vallejo paints, with a very dilute Humbrol wash to bring out the panel lines and grubby it up a bit.

Nosewheel went a bit skew-whiff and I can't do a great deal about that as it's all epoxied together (I didn't think superglue would hold the weight of the model).

Decals were the ones that came with the kit.

Engine heat staining was painted with a base of Tamiya gun metal, followed by tinting the paint with clear blue and clear orange. It doesn't really show up very well in the iPad pictures. I could have painted those access hatches a bit better.

Thanks for looking
