PAK FA - Scratchbuilt Sukhoi T-50

Recommended Posts

My scratchbuild of the new Sukhoi T-50 PAK FA is finished.....

I had a few disasters - I dropped it and the port wing fell off :sunrevolves:

The painting isn't the best I have ever done..... and I got a little fed up with it towards the end :monkeydance:

Anyway, here it is.....

The undersides...

Topsides...

The yellow 'primer' areas are a combination of painting and painted clear decal film....

The TVC nozzles are modified from the Revell cans.....

I think I have got the main gear legs a bit too long..... :monkeydance:

Here it is next to a Su-30MKI for comparison....

That's fantastic ! :sunrevolves:

Especially when you consider how fast you've done it and with so few references available at the moment ...

Nice Job, Ken ! :monkeydance:

You criticize yourself on this build? Amazing! It's awesome. Will time show that you got something 'off', well maybe, but for what's available now and how quickly completed (I have to agree with Ghost), Fantastic! I hope to have a fraction of your skill one day.

BTW, what color do you use for that 'primer' area?

Ken,

That looks very good. With the exception of the slightly too long main gears, the model looks spot on to my untrained eyes. Now you can brag to be the first one on the block to own a PAK FA model while the rest of us will still have to wait for years for ours.

Cheers,

Terry

Excellent work Ken, I particularly like the finishing around the cockpit frame. No mean feat to scratchbuild this aircraft and get it to look so 'right'.

Awesome Ken! Inaccuracies or not, you are probably the first kid on the block (read: earth) with a model of PAK-FA. Not counting Pogosyan's own desk model. :cheers:

As usual, you are the best scratchbuilder i have seen on net. :worship:
