Trumpeter 1/144 Tu-16k-26 Badger G

May 31, 2017 in Aviation

I initially had problems photographing this build. Because of the light gray color the fine detail always seemed to disappear. To-day with a re-shoot under a light overcast sky, I had better luck.
This was an excellent Trumpeter kit, finished with MM light ghost grey, with some light weathering.

  1. Phil, that turned out nicely! Thanks for the tip on the overall color. I tend to get wrapped aroud the axle on “authentic’ colors. Close enough is good enough. This looks “right”.

  2. Nice one Phil ,funny I am building the trumpeter 1/72 Ilyushin IL-28 Beagle,has nice detailing,Hope mine turns out as good as yours.Cheers.

  3. Great work, Phil! I like these old Soviet Air Force planes. The colour is right on, as is your build.
    Keep up the good work.

  4. I like it! I only wish you’d have put in a “common object” in one of the pics to give us less-than-informed plastic freaks a reference as to the the actual size of a 1/144th Badger. 🙂

  5. The subdued light really suits it, Phil, helps to make it look more “Russian” somehow. Good job.

  6. Looks good Phil, I don’t have this one in my stash but I do have a Bear to do at dome stage !

  7. Looks great! I also have a Trumpeter 1/72 IL-28 I’m eager to build in Nigerian scheme. I’ve only built one Trumpeter kit so far, and it was a pretty good experience.

  8. Very cool Phil, I love the big Russian bombers.
