Just found a few profiles and a photo showing it from the left side, being in a row of several Flankers, but you've already probably seen that one.

I have most of what I need..the freshly painted cammo is a good guide the weathering will be challenging. I see primer showing through in many palaces.

For brutal over the top weathering Red 41 is a perfect choice. :)))

Think blue 41 and red 41 looks just as badly weathered.....I see primer shining through in places.

But is the paint scheme the same as on the refurbished red 16? (What is left of it)

keep in mind Blue 41 served for around two decades, so the weathering is anything from slightly faded paint job with paint oversprays over the tactical number areas to the extreme weathering as you can see in these latest 201x shots.

OK finally time to paint....

I´m using the Akan line of Sukhoi paints, I´m going for a really weathered jet so I´m using the dafed paints....


First off light blue

Next it is light grey....you can hardly see any difference 😛

And finally the blue...

Dark blue grey where the former numbers have been painted over.

Then I begun shooting some zinc chromatic yellow in places where the paint will have worn down to the primer.

To create the illusion of the yellow being under the other paints I made a mask of a thin slice of dish spunge to create edges and stains.

I´ll keep working over the fuselage a few coats before I seal it all and start on the engine nacelles.

Hehe, works like a charm too...only thing is it gets saturated after a while and needs to dry for a while....so it is good to have a few.

Looks great.  Looking forward to seeing it finished!    

 

I should be on to my next flanker build by that time, so it will provide some additional inspiration!

Update time.... lots of paint 😛


Putting on bettering paint spots and bare metal and more spots.

IMG_4402_zpsevgg3rue.jpg

 

A little bit of unmasking and dry fitting.

IMG_4403_zps5lorlggk.jpg

 

Masked the intakes....should realy have done this before assembly.

IMG_4404_zpssoli0ms5.jpg

 

Painted the intake in ndark aluminium and the intake lip in white aluminium on top of honey primer for a bit of shine.

IMG_4405_zpsuaze3ouy.jpg


Added some aluminium pigments with a brush to get some subtle bare metal sheen.

IMG_4406_zpspznmgree.jpg

IMG_4407_zpsj5rleowx.jpg


Then I masked the nacelles.

IMG_4408_zps5kfpb8no.jpg


While laying down gloss black I slipped and got a big spot on the model luckily in is painted with acrylics so I could wipe off most of the spill but I need to do some betterig here later.

IMG_4409_zpsejmtutfe.jpg

IMG_4410_zps9rvj4z7f.jpg

IMG_4412_zpswb9h0sbz.jpg

 

OK, Alclad gloss black. incredebly thin paint but it b rings a highly glossy surface...I´vce used the same bottle for more than ten years now still works like a charm.

IMG_4411_zpsxdiweppu.jpg


Next a thin coat of Airframe Aluminium just to bring out the high shine.

IMG_4413_zpsbibhmch1.jpg

IMG_4414_zpscbgoptp3.jpg

 

And I finished todays session with painting the nacelles in a thin coat of White aluminium, I still get the Airframe aluminium shine tho I toned it down a bit.
I now have my blank canvas for engine weathering.

Sorry to hear about the spill but I know you can fix it.   But that paintjob/weathering is truly amazing!
