  1. Thanx Steve ๐Ÿ˜„ it's been a challenge, and fun, thanx to yufei who invented this technique I merely adapted it for the Su-27 ๐Ÿ˜„
  2. Yay, the nacells are pretty much done! First blue lines across... Then brown lines along... Then some tamyia make up... Finally a dusting in gold and pale exhaust and then sealed with a gloss coat and unmasked. There... Either I start repairing the paint spill or I go for the exhaust cans....we shall see ๐Ÿ˜„ Chees!
  3. Time to finish the undersides of the engine nacelles....at least ๐Ÿ˜› Tho time consuming itยดs been fun playing around...did a few do-doยดs but itยดs a learning curve ๐Ÿ˜„ Done with the v Next some blue and brown lines...this time I did not mask. Some Tamyia make up... Then a thin coat of gold and sealing coat of future....unmasked and done. This side turned a bit nasty when I tried sealing with too wet a coat of future ๐Ÿ˜› Iยดll leave it to the learning curve. Next it is the upper side...whew. Cheers!
  4. Nope, the knees are still swollen and I walk with a stick....not that much pain anymore tho. Take nice pics!
  5. Thanx Matt and Gabor ๐Ÿ˜„ I actually managed to walk without angushing pain with a stick today so I guess the cortisone is starting to kick in ๐Ÿ˜„
  6. Home on sick leave...my left knee konked out on me, an athritis flash they told me so I got a couple of walking sticks and shot of cortison in my knee. Sooo....I sat down with the flanker today ๐Ÿ˜„ I used those wonderful New Ware masks for the engine nacells. Then I masked off the end and shot first Alclad steel, then a thin dusting of copper and then pale exhaust on top of that..Iยดm happy with it. Next for some serious masking. I decided to try out Yufeis trick with a brush pen to recreate weldlines. I did not however find Sakura pens at the store I was but well this cheaper ones...I bought three for the price of ONE sakura pen...letยดs see how that works out. Iยดm totally happy with that. Now Iยดve done one side....3 to go plus the uppersides....this masking is killing me! ๐Ÿ˜› Cheers!
  7. Yes. Shrubberies are my trade. I am a shrubber. My name is 'Roger the Shrubber'. I arrange, design, and sell shrubberies.
  8. Thanx crackerjazz ๐Ÿ˜„ yeah, no worries I'll fix that in no time....just annoying.
  9. Update time.... lots of paint ๐Ÿ˜› Putting on bettering paint spots and bare metal and more spots. A little bit of unmasking and dry fitting. Masked the intakes....should realy have done this before assembly. Painted the intake in ndark aluminium and the intake lip in white aluminium on top of honey primer for a bit of shine. Added some aluminium pigments with a brush to get some subtle bare metal sheen. Then I masked the nacelles. While laying down gloss black I slipped and got a big spot on the model luckily in is painted with acrylics so I could wipe off most of the spill but I need to do some betterig here later. OK, Alclad gloss black. incredebly thin paint but it b rings a highly glossy surface...Iยดvce used the same bottle for more than ten years now still works like a charm. Next a thin coat of Airframe Aluminium just to bring out the high shine. And I finished todays session with painting the nacelles in a thin coat of White aluminium, I still get the Airframe aluminium shine tho I toned it down a bit. I now have my blank canvas for engine weathering. Cheers!
  10. Thanx ViperZero and BaconRaygun ๐Ÿ˜„
  11. Hehe, works like a charm too...only thing is it gets saturated after a while and needs to dry for a while....so it is good to have a few. Thanx Captain ๐Ÿ˜„ that is what the akan faded colors look like from the cans ๐Ÿ™‚
  12. Thanx Moritz and Mario :D slowly getting there... Will keep painting ut today after work.
  13. OK finally time to paint.... Iยดm using the Akan line of Sukhoi paints, Iยดm going for a really weathered jet so Iยดm using the dafed paints.... First off light blue Next it is light grey....you can hardly see any difference ๐Ÿ˜› And finally the blue... Dark blue grey where the former numbers have been painted over. Then I begun shooting some zinc chromatic yellow in places where the paint will have worn down to the primer. To create the illusion of the yellow being under the other paints I made a mask of a thin slice of dish spunge to create edges and stains. Iยดll keep working over the fuselage a few coats before I seal it all and start on the engine nacelles. Cheers!
  14. Super cool build to look forwards to!
  15. Think blue 41 and red 41 looks just as badly weathered.....I see primer shining through in places. But is the paint scheme the same as on the refurbished red 16? (What is left of it)
  16. I have most of what I need..the freshly painted cammo is a good guide the weathering will be challenging. I see primer showing through in many palaces.
  17. Oh, man that is beautiful! I wish I had your patience for details ๐Ÿ™‚
