  1. Hi all! Back again with my latest completed project, the Kinetic Su-33 Sea Flanker. This is a model I have wanted to build for quite some time, and a quarterly contest with my local IPMS club (John Glenn, Cleveland) gave me the excuse I needed to start this one. The contest theme was "I've Got the Blues", which was to build something that was predominantly blue. I am happy to say this model won first place! By now I am sure you have heard much about this kit. It is complex. The detail is fantastic. Accuracy is pretty good. The instructions are, well, really bad. There is an updated PDF with new instructions online now, which are better, but still leave a lot to be desired. There are some part placement omissions, and seeing where exactly to attach parts can be quite ambiguous. But the worst part for me was the order of construction. It really just makes no sense. I built this basically just referencing the instructions every once in awhile to make sure I didn't forget something or I just wanted to try to get a better idea of how something fit together. I totally ignored the order of construction for the most part. Did I say this was a complex build? Yeah, it is. There are tons of parts. Fitment was actually pretty decent in most places, but I did encounter issues with the intakes fitting right and the nose cone fit is just poor in general. I had quite a step to deal with no matter how much I dry fit or sanded to get it better before attachment. I used a combination of kit decals and the Begemot sheet "Sukhoi Su-33 Sea Flanker - Mission in Syria". The kit decals really are quite nice, and the Begemot ones were as well, just like always. There are some things I did not do exactly correctly or accurately, but overall I am very happy with the end result. Here is what I used for this project: Kit: 1/48 Kinetic Su-33 Flanker-D, K48062 Decals: Begemot Su-33 "Mission in Syria" 48-051, OOB Aftermarket: Master Model Pitot Tube Paints: Gunze Mr. Surfacer Black 1500 (main aircraft primer base), Tamiya Liquid White Primer (for marble coat), Mr Paint MRP-195 Sukhoi Cockpit Blue-Gray, MRP-032 Russian Wheel Green, MRP-199 Su-33 Light Blue, MRP-200 Su-33 Dark Blue and MRP-201 Su-33 Gray, MRP-186 Light Gray, Tamiya Gloss White, Rubber Black, Smoke, Clear Blue, and Clear Yellow, Gunze Mr Color GX2 Gloss Black (gloss black primer for metalwork) and Alclad II Airframe Aluminum, Pale Burnt Metal, and Jet Exhaust. Future Gloss coat for decals and Future+Tamiya XF-21 Flat Base 6:1 ratio for final matte coat. Mig Ammo Deep Gray panel wash. Now on to the pics... I hope you like!
  2. I just uploaded the following paint charts in 1/48 (@150 dpi): Links to the drawings are here: https://zactomodels.com/html/Su-33/Su-33_deal.htm (also note that I've reduced the price to $47 on the Su-33 kits I'm selling! Best price you'll find anywhere!) I spent a lot of time researching the camo schemes and documented them to the best of my ability. It frustrates me when I see kits that include multiple decal options but only show one camo scheme, especially on a plane where there is so much variation. There are also a bunch of small details that differ from one plane to another. Little details like the thin gray edge stripe under the cockpit is different on each of these schemes. Details like the gray forward section on the Bort 80 IRST. The bare metal tips on Bort 68s wingtip pylons. Etc. Also note the bare metal panel on the lower left fuselage just below the wing flap. I think I've only seen one build that included this. Note that I don't call out color recommendations on the charts or my web page. I've seen a lot of discussion and debate about which paint brands are most accurate and haven't seen a definitive answer. If I were building one I'd grab something close and make my own color adjustments. The main marking locations should be close. The markings were based on the decals that were being developed for the 1/48 kit before Kinetic took over and finished the project. The markings on the drawings are not necessarily accurate (especially the colors). Cross Delta ended up doing the decals for the Kinetic kit and I don't know how accurate they are either. I recommend Begemot Decals. They offer a sheet with early schemes (48-007 which includes Bort 80 above) as well as one for current schemes (48-051 Su-33 in Syria) which could be used to do the other schemes above. The stencils and stencil location on these drawings is questionable (wasn't carefully researched), so check your references. Again, I'd recommend Begemot. They have an Su-27 stencil package (48-009) that includes decals and instructions for the Su-33. It includes 3 pages of stencils for airframes, pylons and weapons. Hope that you like the drawings and find them helpful on your builds. If you don't have the kit yet, grab one at this price while they last (prices will likely be going up a lot in the near future...).

  4. Hello all, I have the Sunkmodels Modelworks Russian (Su-33) Weapons Set for the Kinetic kit: Su-33 Weapons Set As the Kinetic kit requires only the half set to equip the kit with all necessary pylons (intake tunnel pylons and pylons underneath the intake ducts are missing completely in the kit) I have the other half left for sale including the half amount of missiles included in the set. 19€ plus shipping. I will keep shipping costs low, because It is possible to mail it as letter. Payment by PayPal is possible. PM me, if you are interested. Best regards, Thomas
