Su-27 Flanker B, Hobby Boss 1/48

Recommended Posts

Home on sick leave...my left knee konked out on me, an athritis flash they told me so I got a couple of walking sticks and shot of cortison in my knee.

Sooo....I sat down with the flanker today 😄


I used those wonderful New Ware masks for the engine nacells.

Then I masked off the end and shot first Alclad steel, then a thin dusting of copper and then pale exhaust on top of that..I´m happy with it.

Next for some serious masking. I decided to try out Yufeis trick with a brush pen to recreate weldlines.

I did not however find Sakura pens at the store I was but well this cheaper ones...I bought three for the price of ONE sakura pen...let´s see how that works out.

I´m totally happy with that.

Now I´ve done one side....3 to go plus the uppersides....this masking is killing me! 😛

Cheers!

Thanx Matt and Gabor 😄

 

 

I actually managed to walk without angushing pain with a stick today so I guess the cortisone is starting to kick in 😄

Nope, the knees are still swollen and I walk with a stick....not that much pain anymore tho.

Take nice pics!

nice work Janne! Looking awesome. I like that pen idea. I thought it was ultra fine maskol or something like it at first

Hope  your knee gets better - nothing makes you feel older than walking with a stick

Time to finish the undersides of the engine nacelles....at least 😛

Tho time consuming it´s been fun playing around...did a few do-do´s but it´s a learning curve 😄

Done with the v

Next some blue and brown lines...this time I did not mask.

Some Tamyia make up...

Then a thin coat of gold and sealing coat of future....unmasked and done.

This side turned a bit nasty when I tried sealing with too wet a coat of future 😛 I´ll leave it to the learning curve.

Next it is the upper side...whew.

Tons of tonal variety going on there- I love it!  These engine areas on the Flankers are quite intriguing and visually pleasing to look at.  Great work!

Excellent work on the engine nacelles and the entire project. Your painting is extremely well done. 

 

Now.....maybe I'll have to just sell my Su-30! lol

Only thing left is pigments but I'll do that after I've put down a wash on the entire model. Soon the exhausts will be added and then it is paint  repair before I do the gun platings 😄

Now here is a really yummy exhaust update :D!


First a wee bit of masking....Like so.

IMG_4438_zpsrjvkv8yh.jpg

IMG_4439_zpsuy6eurvb.jpg


Then I shot Alclad steele and unmasked...

IMG_4440_zpsfzfnnn5h.jpg


Then some more maskng...I did tell that I love the New Ware engine masks didn´t I?

IMG_4441_zpsuhd0kouf.jpg


Shot Alclad magnesium and unmasked...see the biger petals are lighter than the smaller? if not well you njust have to take my word for it 😛

IMG_4442_zpslxop18qf.jpg


Masked again before shooting Alclad exhaust.

IMG_4444_zpscdeinfgc.jpg


And unmasked...getting there slowly.

IMG_4445_zpssrumpnjd.jpg


MAsking again, this time the inside petals.

IMG_4446_zpswstcs8pd.jpg

 

I shot Alcad white primer and then Alclad exhaust on top just to make a dfference in there.

IMG_4447_zpsdczknndk.jpg


At this point I glued the turkey feathers to the rest of the exhaust.

IMG_4449_zpskxk4en4w.jpg


Then I went at it with Tamyia make up.

IMG_4450_zpshteswe5u.jpg


And finally black pigment to blend it all and give it tha that sooty hot look.
IMG_4451_zpsu10dj5bp.jpg

 

And finished, glued in place...you see that the nac ells will require some additional weathering too but I´ll do that later.

Cheers!

Aren't New Ware masks great? I love them too. If I see a set out for a kit I have I will generally snatch one up immediately. Especially with the big Russian jets. They save a lot of time with masking.

Definitely impressive work on the nacelles and nozzles. Glad you're posting your steps, I may need them too!

Indeed they are...saves soooo much time! I will definitely get them for every rusky build! 😄

Thanks Brett 😄 I like posting like that...in case someone feels inclined to see how I do things and sometimes I do specials for certain techniques and such. 😄

Great job man.  Very similar to what I did on my Su-35 exhausts.   I didnt use any pigments, though... just lots and lots of layers and a ton of patience.  I think I spent about a week and a half painting the exhaust and stabilators.

Thanx Bac8nRaygun 😄

there are many ways to skin a cat 😄 I think pigment gives that right patina and you can remove it in so many ways that you get that spotty infused feel to the metal.

For sure man.  I definitely see the merits of pigments/dry colors...  I'm a noob, so I have not tried them yet because I'm still in the process of exploring this hobby.
