Minibase 1/48 Sukhoi Su-33 Red 80 in Flight


Recommended Posts

Hello! This is my latest build, a Minibase Su-33 in 48th scale. It was finished one month ago. It was built mostly OOB. The only modifications are a set of 3D-printed upgrade parts released also by Minibase (with weight off wheel landing gear legs and seated pilot). 600 parts and 400+ stencil decals, great amount of work proved to be worthy!

 

As for building progress photos, you may refer to here: https://www.scalemates.com/profiles/mate.php?id=67957&p=albums&album=83034&i=630#630

 

Happy modeling!

That looks superb! I particularly like the first shots where it's flaring and about to touch down. Beautiful build and a great idea! I don't think I've seen an in-flight presentation of that moment before.

Absolutely awesome! Super photos. I hope you're not angry if I've refined a photo a little and you're not offended. But I couldn't resist.
All the best

I followed this one on Facebook but the photos here really show it off very nicely. A great looking build and something for me to aim for when I get around to building my one.

It turned out to be a great model and great photos.
I participated in the development of this model and I am very pleased that such fantastic models of an aircraft very close to me appear.

It is a great honor to have your kind comment!  My friend AN Ran (a.k.a. SuperTomcat21) who also participated the development of this very model has mentioned you before. I downloaded your photos from scalemodel.ru for reference when building my own version of Red 80. The design and manufacturing of this model would not be possible without your help, my friend!

Absent the perspex rod, that could pass s a colour photograph of the real thing.

 

Perfect build - superb!

These are obviously pictures of a real aircraft, someone just photoshopped in a stand.🤣

Thank you! I have been trying out with this idea in recent years and made 7 consecutive 1/48 scale builds in similar configuration.

Thank you! I prefer to post the WIP photos on Facebook or scalemates, because it is more convenient to upload photos directly.

Для меня большая честь получить ваш добрый комментарий! О вас уже упоминал мой друг AN Ran (он же SuperTomcat21), который также участвовал в разработке этой самой модели. Я скачал ваши фотографии с сайта Scalemodel.ru для ознакомления при сборке своей версии Red 80. Разработка и изготовление этой модели были бы невозможны без вашей помощи, друг мой!

 

And thank you for your kind words. Of course, I know AN Ran, he attracted me to work on this project and the prototypes of the Su-27K. It’s a pity that its leadership did not consider the proposal to develop the Su-25UTG; there is also a lot of material on it and a normal model of the Su-24M.
Thanks again for the wonderful model and further success.
By the way, the Scalemodels website, which my friend and I created, is already 19 years old this year.

Minbase is currently working on four projects as I know: The Lockheed Martin F-16 Block 20, Su-30SM, Su-30MKM and Shenyang J-15. The F-16 may be the first to release. I am looking forward to all their new products, since you just need to build them OOB to get premium quality. My model showed up with two other Su-33/Su-27K builds during 3rd Guangzhou Scale Model Contest. I forgot to upload the underside photo of this model, also here they are!
