  1. MRP-49 Light Grey-Blue is what I used for my AMK MiG-31. It is described as "Russian aircraft cockpit and wheel wells from 1960 to the present." It is a very good match to the real thing.
  2. You are correct on this sir. They always seem to excel in some areas but then fall flat in others. I really enjoyed their Su-34 kit but in some parts all I thought was "Dude, really?" Hopefully Quinta makes the correct cockpit set for this kit. Also in reference to your notes on the underside 3 tone came pattern found on the naval Su-30SMs, russianplanes.net has great photos of the Su-30SM, including ones that show the unique undersides of the naval SMs.
  3. I thought this comes with the Su-30SM cockpit? The kit review on Flory Models showed that it had the MFD screens. Unless those are for a different Su-30 version?
  4. I used Model Master enamels 15% FS36270 Neutral Gray and 85% FS36320 Dark Ghost Gray. Here is my gallery article to see how it turned out: http://www.arcair.com/Gal16/15501-15600/gal15561-Rafale-Vlad/00.shtm
  5. Did you have to modify/shorten the main landing gear struts? I ordered this for mine and when I was dry fitting it, I noticed that the main landing gear bay on the resin part did not have the depth required to fit the kit's main landing gear struts. I ended up not using the intakes in the end. And like everyone else, the Revell kit is the better choice. Very crisp detail.
  6. Excellent finish sir! You're right regarding the RAM panels, they are pretty loud on the unpainted plastic but much more subtle when everything is painted and weathered.
  7. Thanks! Probably will be easier to use this as opposed to just sanding them down.
  8. Sounds like I need to do my homework on this. Thank you though for the detailed information!
  9. Fair enough. Yes I completely agree that this aircraft was skipped over by model companies. It is a shame because it is a pretty unique and well storied aircraft. Do you recommend a certain -E or -F model in 1/72?
  10. Funny that is being discussed. I've been pondering an aircraft from the Gulf War for the 30th anniversary coming up and have found the F-111 appealing and was going to make a post on what a good choice would be for 1/48. But seriously, if there are any recommendations for a 1/48 scale F-111 that would make a nice example from Desert Storm, I'm all ears 😂
  11. This is all great information. Thank you to everyone who shared their thoughts. I suppose that whichever method I choose....it will be a long process. Could always be worse.
  12. Do you remove the line completely? I have thought of that and would be concerned about removing the line completely and scribing in the wrong spot.
