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
