Hasegawa 1/72 Sukhoi Su-33 Flanker


Recommended Posts

Afternoon all,

 

Fresh off the bench is the superb 1/72 Hasegawa Su-33. Built completely OOB, painted with Hataka Orange Line lacquers and Alclad for the metallic areas. Weathering was kept fairly light with a simple application of MIG Prouction's neutral wash before a final coat of Xtracolor satin varnish. A great kit of one of the best looking modern fighters around.

Absolutely stunning job on a lovely plane. Think you've nailed the camo pattern, lovely soft palette too. 

Can I ask how you got that metal effect on the engines, looks really smooth.

Thanks very much :)

 

For the engines, I first laid down a black base before picking out some of the smaller access panels in aluminium. Then I went over the whole area with Steel, before shading with hot metal blue and sepia and pale burnt metal. Alclad was used throughout. It didn't turn out quite as I envisaged in my head, but nevertheless I'm fairly happy with that method. Hope that helps.

Beautiful job on that aircraft! That paint job is really eye catching.  I have to admit, the Russians have some really colorful camo patterns on some of their aircraft, compared to the rather monotonous grey-on-grey the US currently uses.
