  1. Thank you both for your inputs!
  2. Hi everyone! While I'm very much aware and it has been mentioned here probably hundreds of thousands of times already that Russian colors are not standard nor specific for that matter, I still want to ask 2 questions which I have not found the right answer yet: 1. For the gear strut and gear bays: Is it safe to just use light gull grays like 325/11 (FS26440) from Gunze or Testors 1730 (FS 26440) or Humbrol 129 for all their modern jets (all modern MiGs and Sus; or is it more appropriate to use Gunze 338 (FS 36495) or Testors 1732 (FS 36495)? If none of the two above, what is? 2. Are their intake ductings usually same color as their gear bays/struts or are they simply plain unpainted bare metal aluminum? Please advise. Thanks in advance!
  3. Mike70, may I know what paint specifically did you use for the lightest shade of gray for the airframe.
  4. Hope Zvezda do a Super Hind in 1/48.....
  5. Many thanks Whiskey! I'll definitely check on them.
  6. Yes I saw #17 & #19 already but I'm only interested in the list I gave to whiskey.
  7. I could only find Su-27 & MiG-29 on the Verlinden on the net from the list I sent to whiskey.
  8. These are the jets that I'm interested in: SU-25, SU-27, SU-30, SU-33, SU-34, SU-35 MIG-25, MIG-29, MIG-31
  9. Hi everyone! Just wondering if there are any commendable detailed & comprehensive & user-friendly modeling-dedicated reference materials on the modern Russian fighter jets in the market today? I'm talking about something which has colored pictures of most areas of the jet that also come with descriptions and color referencing, something like that. Any help would be appreciated.
  10. Same reasons as Mstor, it's also my personal preference to build single-seaters, one cockpit is good enough for me, don't wanna double my workload. 😁 Unless of course there is no single-seater for that particular jet like the F-14. Also, never considered double-seater much better looking than single-seater.
  11. They claimed that the GR.1 decal sheet will be produced/printed by them meaning Eduard's (and not by Cartograph), has anyone tried their decal, is it any good? I've got several Eduard kits but haven't build one yet.
