The first finished model of 2017. HobbyBoss kit in 1:72ish scale (closer to 1:60 I guess) and Begemot decals. Several changes had to be made in order to bring the kit, built to represent the first two prototypes, to the rebuilt 5th flying prototype.

Hello ARC, Here's my latest... Trumpeter's 1/72 Su-30MKK with Naza Model Art's conversion kit and Begemot decals to make an Indian Air Force Su-30MKI. I painted the model with Mr. Color lacquers, which I mixed to match some photos I have from a recent exercise in the US. I am by no means a Flanker expert or know anything about the IAF, however It seems the more recent visits of these jets to the US and UK sport this darker shade of gray. It also seem that they have recently adopted the red/white Western-style ejection seat warning triangles underneath the canopy rail. So I just had to include them on my model... kind of an odd East meets West thing. The weapons came from multiple sources; the KAB-500L LGBs are from Advanced Modeling, the EL/L-8222 ECM pod is from Wolfpack, the Litening targeting pod is from Eduard, and the missiles are stolen from the Zvezda Su-33 (hint to what's next...). The stand was built from a block of oak and an aluminum bar I found in my garage. I posed the model as if it were just competing a rejoin on a tanker... IFR probe extended, throttles back (nozzles open), and the speed brake partially extended to stop the last bit of closure as the pilot matches airspeed with the tanker. Pre-contact, stable, ready... Hope you like model! Todd
Finally finished this beast. Converted from Condor's MiG-25P. This is the MiG-25RBF Red 57 "Ivan Lezjov", formerly Red 20 "Rostislav Yashuk". It's one of the more interested schemes from Begemot's MiG-25 decal set, due to the rough overspraying of the old markings, dark green and light green over sand color scheme (usually RBFs and BMs appear to have brown and green over light green camo), and the replacement flaps from another, overall grey Foxbat. Colors are from AKAN's USSR VVS tactical colors 1978-89 set. Fun conversion and build overall.
