1/48 Su-33 Flanker D, Russian Naval Aviation.


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

Here is my recently completed 1/48 Kinetic Su-33 Flanker D of the 279th Fighter Aviation Regiment, Russian Naval Aviation, on board the Admiral Kuznetsov circa 2016.

 

The kit itself is very nicely detailed, but be warned the instructions are dreadful! Extras used included a Quickboost seat, New Ware masks, J's Work camouflage mask and Master Pitot tube. Paints are from Mr Paint (MRP-199 Su-33 Light Blue, MRP-200 Su-33 Dark Blue and MRP-201 Su-33 Grey) and weathering was done with a mixture of oils and pigments. The build thread is here

Most excellent model. Thanks for the warning regarding the instructions. How is the parts fit in this kit?

Thanks mate. Fit is generally good. The intakes are a bit tricky as is the fit of the nose section; I ended up with a step in both areas that needed cleaning up but other than that the model went together very well.

Thanks chaps!

 

Werner, the HB kit is nice and an easy build but the details on the Kinetic kit are nicer, ignoring the tricky fit of the intakes. My wish would be for GWH to release a full line up of Flankers!
