which colors are closest to the su-27 livery, AKAN OR MRP? are they acrylic? how do they dilute? thank you. I also find it hard to understand something with these Russian aircraft colors. I'll do as well as Porkbits I know, using the infos above.

These are the photos of "Red 64".

Same as the single seat "Red 01" with cobra eyes/mouth from same regiment, it has repainted 4-tone camo by local maintenance staff.

Thanks, Haneto! The plot thickens. Hmmmm.

 

If I can determine the right color for the darkest of the blue shades in four-color camo, maybe I will do Red 64 profile. Curt suggested MRP-44 and Eduard used same profile for their Su-27 (repop of Academy), and instructions indicate Mr. Color C34 Sky Blue. Who knows? Danged Russian jets schemes are harder to pin down than a butterfly.....

I maybe having a "Senior moment" but where is the cannon on this kit?? I don't see it in the instructions. I doubt it they left it out of the kit.

Hi,

just a quick question.

GWH provides two front wheel bay. According to them, left one is for Russian Su-27, and right one is for Chinese and Ukrainian ones.

 

Is this correct? I didn't know that Russian Su-27UB has so different wheel bay than theirs single seater.

 

Thanks

Yes, it is so different!

The one on the right is for the single seater

The UB twoseater was /is different (on the left)!

 

Best regards

Technically looks more like the UB is missing a cover, hiding the internal details, that exists in the single sitter. Awesome details by the way!

Sorry, but no, it is a different bay in the UB version.

 

Best regards

thank you for the info. Tthey said in instructions that Chinese and Ukrainian UB should have the on the right, which seemed odd to me...  thanks!

A small building hint: do NOT fill the panel line. I intentially break parts by panel lines.

 

Haneto:

 

Thanks for the tip! Are you posting a build log of your UB on this forum or another? If so, can you provide link? I tried searching for it but couldn't find anything.

 

I've been using your Su-35s thread here on ARC for my build, and has been very helpful. Your online "teaching" has helped me achieve one of my better builds, so thank you for sharing your skills and knowledge!

Thanks for the support.

Unfortunately I'm not building the 27 at the time, since I'm enjoying building 1/700 ship models recently.;)

Maybe I will start building it after my current building plan is finished, hopefully this year.

Thanks for update and good luck with the ship projects! My plan is to start the UB right after I finish the 35S, and I'm such a slow builder, you might have started your UB by then lol.
