Hi Brit and other modelers! 

 

Recently I finished working on another one of my Sukhoi projects. This time I chose my first two-seater, technology demonstrator for the Chinese PLAAF. The reason why I chose simple gray paint scheme instead of more attractive colorful schemes is because this two-color scheme better showcases the aircrafts beautiful shape. My next project will be a Su-35S and the paint scheme will be very similar.

This particular aircraft has the blue "372" number on side of both intakes, and it got that number during the Paris airshow. 

 

I think that Trumpeter did a great job but some corrections were needed, together with some detailing. Also I added a fuel bowser (ICM - ATZ-5-4320), and I 100% scratch built the fire extinguisher as the last finishing detail. 

 

I hope you will enjoy the photos of this beautiful plane in real life, and I hope you will enjoy my recreation of it.

 

 

The real deal:

My take:

 

 

1) Pilots with ground crew are waiting for "502 white" to land.

The finished cockpit, it's pretty hard to see when the canopy is mounted:

A very well done diorama. The cockpit detail is excellent and I do like the painting of the figures.

That's really cool! Love the diorama. 👌The weathering and paint are superb and for some reason i think it looks as good in the overall grey colour scheme as it does in the multi camo or splinter patterns.

That's great.  What a handsome and brutal looking beast this aircraft is.  I really like the discolouration effect you have achieved on the afterburners.
