Sukhoi Su 27B
by Julien Haccoun
Sukhoi Su 27B Flanker
scale Su 27 is available
online at Squadron.com
Here is Academy's 1/48 scale Sukhoi Su 27, enhanced with Cutting Edge exhaust
nozzles, cockpit and wheels and a LOT of additional work around the airframe,
the landing gear wells and legs.
Paints are from Aeromaster and Lifecolor. The camouflage was painted using
low tack tape, but if I had had to do it again I would use a completely
different method - Gunze paints and Tamiya masking tape!
The decals also come from Cutting Edge, but I had to modify them a lot in
order to change the bort number from 48 to 57: thank you, Andy and Vincent!
The model is much more heavily weathered than suggested by the photographs.
The light toned the whole thing down
