Guardian of the East...1/48 Sukhoi Su-27 Flanker-B Russian Airforce

Recommended Posts

#23/2019

The sexy beast from the east is done.
Hobby Boss kit built oob, only some stencils came from Hi-Decal because the kit decals aren´t the best.
Camo painted with AK Real Color Air Supperiority Blue for the lighter blue. For the darker blue my dad mixed Tamiya XF-18 Medium Blue with XF-23 Light Blue and XF-2 White in approx. 4:1:1.
The grey was done with Tamiya XF-19 Sky Grey.
Exhaust area painted with Gunze H63 Mettalic Blue Green, H76 Burnt Iron and Tamiya X-13 Metallic Blue.

An excellent example of Sukhoi's huge, purposeful fighter. I really like the various graduated sections on the engines. 

 

Thanks for sharing with us.

Outstanding finish!  An aircraft that is graceful and brutish at the same time.

Wooowwww!!!

I like this plane and this camouflage! Great work as usual.

 

If I can, in my opinion, the metallic zones (engine and gun) are too matt... maybe a little bit of more gloss could be better

Thanks Matteo!

Wanted to achieve a worn and dirty finish, therefore flat.
