Su-34 from Hobby Boss in 1/48


Recommended Posts

Hallo

 

After a longer WIP

I finished my model. I took a break in plastic modelling to enjoy my model railway.

Now the kit of the Su-34 is quite good.

There is not much to say about, it works straight forward.

There I replaced the nozzles by Reskit and took also etched parts from Eduard.

Eduard parts are some help, but nothing really special.

The Quintas cockpit was very useful.

Masks from New Ware and Galaxy were the best aid during the painting process.

The Master items of discharger are worth to mention. They are tiny, not small.

So you need a quiet hand to install them. Just on the tailerons I used them.

The pitot tube was also from Master.

Decals and stencils are from Bregnun. They are great!

To mention is the design of the gear in the kit.

This is very well done!

So have a look, and enjoy.

 

Happy modelling

That's very well done, neat paintwork and a pristine result. I think they used to call that scheme the 'Bluebottle' (or Russian equivalent).

 

The landing gear doesn't look like it's all touching the ground though 🤔

Hallo

 

It is nice to know, that you like it.

For me, it is a change from all the grey jets.

The blue camo is for me as interesting as IAF (israeli) desert camo.

Therefore, I will build some more Suckhois in the next months.

 

Happy modelling

That is awesome I was thinking of thi or the Kitty Hawk kit but I think Hobbyboss is possibly the better choice if you had no issues building this as God only knows Kitty Hawk like to make their kits a challenge to put together. Great camo scheme you don't see too many hard edged paint jobs much this looks great. I bet it's quite a beast in size too. Since you used the Quinta Studio's 3D printed cockpit can you see much of it? I know the only access is via the front landing gear so obviously no open canopy so just curious.

Well, the Quinta Studio cockpit is quite vissible. Big huge windows!

Whenever I choose it in my models, the difference or distinction to photo etched products is:

Quintas colors are bright as in real, you can see them.

Etched parts and films often appear dull.

Color differences blur or become small.

That's why the result is always frustrating, even with the most accurate and best work with etched parts.

Especially when looking at cockpits with small windows.

Black caves of Western machines to blue or green cockpits of Russian machines.

In addition, today there is the colorful camouflage paint.

Russian machines are more pleasing to the eye.

Happy modelling
