Hello

 

I have finished the 1/72 Zvezda Sukhoï Su-57 kit.

I have chosen No 511 prototype as it has likely operated form Russian bases in Syria and I have found a couple of pictures of her.

The build is easy as with every new aircraft kits form Zvezda.

On the other hand there is nothing for the pixelated camouflage except a wrong scheme on the instruction sheet.

So I used my Silhouette Portrait to make masks and get a better camouflage scheme.

Both colors came from the Tamiya Lacquer Paint range and how I saw them on the available pictures..

Great build and an outstanding job on the painting. I'm very impressed. Can't wait to see the 1/48 scale version of this model.

The pixelated effect is beautifully recreated, all the more impressive because you fabricated you own masks. great work.:like:

Hello

 

I have drawn and cut the masks from Tamiya tape on a plastic sheet like this :

Next I put them on the dark grey before airbrushing the light grey :

Thanks for explaining how you achieved this Patrick, that's a lot of careful cutting out! Bags of patience and ingenuity.

The model looks great, but why such small pictures?

Hello

 

The size of the pictures is depending of the provider Photoservice.

Thank you very much.

I have seen pictures of a Draken Mirage F1 (N574EM) with the same type of camouflage with three colors and much more complicated. Maybe later.
