sukhoi Su- 22UM3 - DDR - SCALE 1/48


Recommended Posts

- Coincidentaly, after the excellent KORALIK64 this is another Fitter two-seater. in 1/48  scale

- This one is from  HOBBY-BOSS. I had this in my stash, the one from KITTY-HAWK definitely better.

- The ladder , platform and wheels shocks are from a new brand (to me) 3D printed stuff.

Utterly convincing, well-used Su-22!

 

May I suggest that the spanking new looking ladder'n'stuff might appear more convincing with a similar expert level of weathering? 😉

 

Marvellous Sukhoi!

 

Kind regards,

 

Joachim

- Oh yes you'r awfully right it seems I had spent too much time the nose on the kit and  was eager to end this building for another challenge. I will spray some matt varnish to alleviate the glossy brand new effect;

Very nice build of a lesser seen subject, looks very convincing!

 

I especially like the panel line wash in a light colour that shows up nicely but subtly on the dark camouflage colours. That's a technique I've been meaning to try myself, would you share some tips and details?

- Thank you

- The ingraving being very light on this kit the traditionnals washes are difficult to fix in it so I used white oil paint direct from the tube with a flat brush and rubb the surfaces  till the white paint remain in the ingraving only the rest being extended to visually desappear  which has the advantage to give a subtile greyish shade to de camouflage rendering some effect of general  weathering to the whole then  sprayed matt varnish.It works perfecly on dark surfaces.

- I think it will be unvisible on clear under surfaces and using dark oil paint will darken  the clear shade but it could be interesting to try

Lovely Fitters! Super builds all.  I like the look of the 3D accessories, where did you get them please?

- I bought them from Hannants. The result is striking, it is a real progress compared to the photo etched set, no headache to fix the parts together and most of all this put a end to the flat cylindrical parts technically impossible with photoetched parts.
