1/72 Ukrainian Sukhoi T-50
« on: October 01, 2015, 09:03:24 PM »
hi all

I build this as part of a What-If Group Build on another site, but thought I would share it here as well.
It's the Revell boxing of the T-50. It's not a particularly nice kit with some fit issues here and there and the surface of the model is quite rough and not smooth at all - but, it looks like a T-50 and that's what counts
I decided to do mine in Ukrainian splinter as a replacement for their SU-27s. I used AKAN paints (new to me as well and I really like using them - no need to thin them either - spray straight from the bottle).  Although they do have a tendency to peel easily when exposed to masking tape
Anyways, I think the scheme and colours lend themselves well to this aircraft and to give it some more buff, I added some spare missiles from an SU-33 kit I had

















And with the other splintered aircraft I have:



I know some of you will have already seen it, but thanks anyway for looking

I couldn't put it better!

I really like how well those markings work with that cool blue fractal scheme.
