Hobby Boss 1/48 Sukhoi Su-27 Flanker-B Russian Airforce
First post here. After being active on Hyperscale and Britmodeller for a while, trying out something new.
Taking pics and doing posts for my father due to his rather basic computer and English skills. I´m a modeler too, but haven´t built a model in years.
This is on of my dad´s rare excursions in the modern jet world and his latest finished model. He used the nice Hobby Boss kit. Like all HB/Trumpeter kits it may have its shape and accuracy issues, but it looks like a Flanker and that´s good enough. Fit and molding quality is very good.
Built OOB, only added some stencils from a Hi-Decal sheet because the kit decals aren´t the best. Camo was done with AK Real Color Air Superiority Blue, Tamiya XF-19 Sky Grey and a mix of Tamiya XF-18 Medium Blue with XF-23 Light Blue and XF-2 White for the darker blue.
Exhaust area painted with Gunze H63 Mettalic Blue Green, H76 Burnt Iron and Tamiya X-13 Metallic Blue.
