Su-27UB 'Flanker-C' (GWH 1:48)


Recommended Posts

I haven't posted anything in this section for a while but I've decided that this is about to change.

 

Brand new GWH kit of the Su-27UB in 1:48 and from my initial inspection, I am quite certain you can make it into outstanding looking model without use of any aftermarket products.

Progress is slow as I have a bunch of exams at work in the near future and parenting and other hobbies take a toll, but still, I am gaining momentum with this build nevertheless.

 

First completed piece is front gear well - I am doing an early version of the UB so I've chosen the open bay with all the piping and structure visible but GWH provides a closed well for later versions as well.

Following with great interest - One arrived at Christmas thanks to my Good Lady.

The Foxbot Ukrainian digital camo decals await...

Thank you! You will definitely enjoy it!

 

I've got a bunch of learning to do for my upcoming ATC exams so not much time for modelling, unfortunately. I managed to finish the main wheel wells though.

During studying for the exams, (this old head of mine doesn't suck knowledge in as it used to and has to be constantly beat into submission :D) I managed to do a few relaxation modelling sessions and here's the result so far.

Looks like a great start.  Mine arrived just after Christmas so I will be following your build with interest.  

 

Good luck with your exams.

Real life is interfering with my modelling so I am not progressing as fast as I would like to. Luckily, the kit is not fighting me back and here she is - for the first time the plastic pieces joined into a beautiful Flanker shape.
