1/48 Sukhoi PAK-FA T-50-1 Prototype

Recommended Posts

Here's another one that was started years ago and put back in the box due to a big move. It's an awesome kit, only one of this scale and not without challenges. It is all OOB as the kit contains all you need; one piece fiberglass fuselage, resin parts, full intakes, metal reinforced landing gear, photo etch, vac formed canopy and a great decal sheet with all the stencils.

 

The build had a quite a few disasters in the final stages, I had to replace the canopy (luckily HpH provide 2) and it's a little rough up close but it looks ok from a distance.

 

Now I'll have to wait for a mainstream kit so I can do a production version with that all flaps, engines drooped gangster look.

That looks great and I wish my "rough" work was even half as good as that!  The engine areas and exhausts are particularly impressive.  Well done

Absolutely brilliant work.  I doubt that we will see many of these built.

Very nice work! Along with the others, I especially like the metal work on the engines/exhausts. You've achieved a very realistic effect.

 

Cheers,

Bill

Hello Paul,

Excellent replica of this Sukhoi. To me a copy from the F-22 Raptor.

Also my compliments on your excellent photography.

Regards, Orion.

I'd love to know how you managed to achieve that copper-toned area on the engines - looks rather classy :coolio:

Thanks y'all, I'm glad you like them.

 

I made them this way after spending far too much building time collecting reference photos off the internet and from magazines.

I used photos like this

And after making the overall copper like coverage used Micron masking tape to start to make the patterns

And then some more

And then applied washes and scumbles to give it more sheen and depth.

 

I noticed the Su-35s have the same kind of patterns and did the same thing on my first Su-35.

I think with 1/48 scale Flankers it takes the same amount of time to do the engine painting as the overall camouflage!

 

My current build has the strange blue thing going on top and bottom-

Man, that's amazing work on the engine areas. Someone (hint) needs to write a LONG how-to one making those effects and others. I have spent a lot of time trying and failing to get these areas up to your standards. Well done Sir!

I've followed your build, you've taken a model that requires a lot of work and made it even more of a challenge updating it to Su-57.  My hat's off to you and look forward to it being finished. Have you seen the recent AKAN colors for the digital versions?
