That'd be a great figure set for a kit Slavo. Make sure to feature them in your build so some kit company trolling Scalemates will take your idea and make a kit for the rest of us ;)

Agree with everyone you sir are the master of metals. Wish mine were 1/4 as good as yours.

I think the only kit exhausts I have ever truly liked and raved about are the ones on the Revell F-15E. They are fantastic.

Here again, two good kits but the exhausts meh. I am coming up on that part with the 14s here soon. Hopefully AMK did better on those.

And I am not even going to bother telling you your work is awesome anymore. It would be more of a rarity to say you screwed something up. ;)
12. October, 02:58
Christian Kohl
Impressive work, Slavo and a very interesting comparison of the two kits!

Николай Дом
Спасибо за подробное сравнение. Работа замечательная!!!

Alexander
Missed the beginning of this undertaking, but I am not surprised to see the beauty you did again with the engine nozzles!
I built the AMK kit and was very pleased overall - except of getting pink decals on the canopy that simulate the rubber sealing.
Will look very forward to your progress on your take on the "flying claybrick", as I like to call it (though for a brick, it flies pretty good).
18. October, 23:24
Lode Schildermans
Slavo, your detailling is beyond every comparaison when I look builds at SCM. And yet, you know to improve. Incredible job on those exhausts. One can hardly see the difference between the real thing and a scale build. I've rarely see such a talented builder

Slavo Hazucha
Thanks mates for all your praise & interest!

I apologize for some radio-silence here, my progress was sluggish as I had to go into effective Lockdown mode again with work & having skype/zoom/teams calls all day was sapping all my energy lately. hope to get some motion into this during the WE!!

@bughunter - I really like researching & replicating jet powerplants, investing into photo research + a good informative web on many Russian engines i.e. is over here (most of the info also in ENG):

leteckemotory.cz/motory/
leteckemotory.cz/motory/d-30f6/index.php?en

@Donald - I definitely am looking for an excuse to do the F-15 engines at some point - still contemplating to which plane best connect them... Unfortunately the cool Israeli Raam´s with the eagle on the fins all seem to have the external petals on - and that would be a pity :)

@Николай - спасибо за похвалу - использовал для справки много русских сайтов!

@Alexander - I´m thinking about this: Mask the lines for the sealant and create a slightly uneven surface (maybe with PVA-glue?) and spray that pink... we´ll see And I agree that the design of this aircraft is... "very functional" :D

@Lode thank you my friend - we´re both perpetrators who always keep returning to the scene of the (favorite) crime - you to the bent metal with crazy mechanical details, I to well used jet engines! ;)

Slavo Hazucha
Nathan, Frank, Daniel, Augustin, Gary, James, Clifford & Lode - gentlemen, thank you very much for your kind comments & for the usual necessary dose of patience with my slowly crawling progress!

Frank - Habe mir besondere Mühe gegeben, am Rad waren leider halt nur ein paar Teile zu bemalen, kein scratch-building oder gar Löten - also ziemlich unbeeindruckend... ;)

Gary I hope it was 2309-vintage bloodwine! :D

Clifford I think I am actually not yet "there" with the tires... I use a dark grey mix + matt varnish and then wash + drybrush - in this case light grey wash and light brown drybrush - on Soviet material, utilizing more dusty runways, I turn it around and drybrush first, then wash with light brown... But as said, while I think I got the rims +/- to my satisfaction with greasy/dirty/brake-dust covered effects, I feel there is still room above for the tires... and btw. the F-104 main wheels are just marginally larger than the Flanker´s front wheels..!

Lode I´ve noticed the prolonged fitting-out on the HOOD... Hope you find time to return to more regular updates, I could use the "nudge to improve" that viewing your mini Swiss-clock-spec work provides! Not that the rigging work would be by any kind inferior, it just relates somewhat harder to Jet-Aircraft... ;) And thanks for stopping by, your comments are always highly valued!

No words, no words at all. A beautiful result. There are a lot of JASDF birds, fantastic and exquisite, but even those rather simple ones are quite interesting, let alone in the hands of Slavo-san. WELL DONE!!!

What an outstanding job you have done, love the weathering.
28. September, 14:48

A masterclass in weathering, absolutely breathtaking!
28. September, 17:54
Slavo Hazucha
Thanks a lot Clifford, Maciej, Michael & Jasper! - Very happy to get such feedbacks from you who all can more than stand your ground in this hobby

Clifford now I really want to do a MiG-21 at some point - even more options to wear & torture the metal surfaces and most of them fully legitimate :)

Maciej I agree - particularly the JASDF Aggressors, blue F-2S as well as all kinds of special and commemorative liveries really leave no wishes open... only problem is (for me) that they mostly come in pristine condition... :D
4. October, 18:00
Christian Kohl
Nice execution by a Japanese `` widowmaker ''. The paintwork is great and very realistic. It's nice to see that this great hobby is seriously pursued by many like-minded people! I'm thrilled, Slavo ;)
4. October, 18:35
Maciej Bellos
My name being followed by this sentence "Very happy to get such feedbacks from you who all can more than stand your ground in this hobby" just makes me want to thank you. I'm honored by this!

Yes those F-2s are pretty clean. Even those that got hit by the tsunami got cleaned up and flew. They are starkingly different to most F-16s around the globe, with the greek Block 52+ being the Queens of grime and slime. For example:

They are supposingly sporting this camo...:

Slavo Hazucha
Thanks Guy, Donald, Arne, Christian, Roland, Daniel & Stephan!! I am humbled by so much positive feedback, but I guess the Sukhoi bureau really made a show-stopper with the splinter camo applied on the huge but sleek & streamlined Flanker airframe...

This project really was a line-up of highs - I liked the kit, the cockpit, the opportunity to do some metal experiments and the investigation to find the right color shades and balances to replicate the prototype´s colors as they appear on the pictures!
23. August, 17:34
ZHOU Kun
The flanker looks great! Thank you for sharing!
25. August, 00:42
Björn Svedberg
Looking great! I love your choice to display the hornet with retracting gears.
25. August, 05:59
Mateusz Wisniewski
I admire the finish on the exhaust! The 3 gray splinter camo looks so nice.
21. September, 23:49
Clifford Keesler
You sure did hit a home run with this one. OUTSTANDING!!!!!!!
21. September, 23:53
6. October, 09:50
Slavo Hazucha
Thanks ZHOU Kun, Björn, Mateusz, Clifford and Giuseppe!

Björn the Kinetic F-18 kit, with a lot of version-based & double parts is a great base for such works - it featured 2 set of main gear legs, making the retracting position easier to set-up with sawing & re-connecting the legs.

Mateusz - I spent a lot of time brooding over photos in different lights & angles to get the dark color right. Make it too grey or too blue and it just kills the appearance - suggestions from instructions were obviously wrong, I mixed various combinations of greys & blues and checked them in various light conditions before arriving at a tone I liked :)
7. October, 09:08
Jasper Breur
That is absolutely fantastic! Photo 20, what a stunning job on that metal work! Congratulations on this perfect result!

23. July, 09:50
Slavo Hazucha
Thanks Tim, Spanjaard & Andy - an old build really, I hardly had any tools or colors at that time (old were long gone, new not yet purchased :) ), so its really very OOB with a bit of washing & few touches here & there... Nothing is airbrushed here, most colors left as they came in the box, as is the metal - it´s the original silver and chromed plastic from the box with some basic surface treatment...

Hanno, Tim & Maciej - this will be an exercise in self-restrain... the movie plane barely displays any wear at all, being clearly looked-after for by a loving crew... :D

Very far from the Russian service- and weather-beaten gear...
13. July, 13:14
Tim Heimer
From the what it's worth dept. Most of the guys with a specialty paint job, and some without, would wipe down their plane with airplane fuel to keep them looking good. That started in WW2.
13. July, 13:23
wilky
The R.A.A.F. discovered that polishing the Spitfire could increse air speed by five miles.
It doesn't sound much but every bit counts.
The paint oxidation was very rapid in the tropics.
Clive Caldwell even went as far as having one of his Mk. Y Spitfires stripped to bare metal being the C.O.
It was soon returned to camoflauge with the directive from higher up.
I'm sure Clive wouldn't have minded the extra attention being our top ace

So... October approaching at supercruise speed... I ordered my Aggressor model & decals at least a month ago via a physical store (a reasonably good one...), because I think physical stores deserve support these days... Suspicous since I got no notification, today I dropped by like "Greetings sir, where´s my model?"

Turns out they had some software issues & the order is only just about to go out! :o

I was hamstering RedBull cans for some epic night shifts on my Vark to be ready for the GB +/- on time, yet now this happens...

Anyway, I´ll think about something, not giving up! Not at all in fact... ;)
26. September 2019, 11:58

Apologies, to used to using TLA's (Three Letter Acronyms, yes I know ITAR is four). Its the agreement countries sign when buying military equipment agreeing not to onsell etc without approval of original manufacturer (USA in this case). Its so we don't get parts or complete systems ending up where they are not wanted.

Thanks Maciej, Bughunter, Elco, Scott, Bryn, Zsolt & Nathan! - for all the nice comments & praise - most appreciated, I am really happy you find that the build captured some of the "feel" of the Aussie Pig as it approached the end...

& thanks for the intel as well - I thought the radical treatment was necessary because the G-version is basically the FB-111A, which was AFAIK not a FB/Strike aircraft, but a SAC strategic nuclear bomber, hence special requirements for irreversible de-militarization... Something like the dismembering of the Tu-160´s in the Ukraine in the early 2000´s:

OK, Slavo. I understood you. I also want to make this model. Some small model companies is makes different aftermarket for this HB model - correct nose, outboard weapons, nozzles, seats, wheels, resin cockpit and other. Using all of this, can make a gorgeous model of this frontline bomber.))

Igor, I'm very much looking forward to see another Fullback in big scale! I think the HB kit is the right choice over the Kitty Hawk, although that one is supposedly OK too...

The Big ED PE really provides meaningful and visible extensions, except the cockpit curtains, that part I found unusable/unrealistic...

I used OOB Nozzles, which are OK, but Amurs would be better for sure - got those for an Su-35 and they are very nice.

Don't know about Reskits... maybe better, maybe not...

If you want to do a series model with the APU cooling, consider this set:

SUKHOI SU-34 APU SET (Cold War Studio CWS48012, 1:48)

1:48 SUKHOI SU-34 APU SET (Cold War Studio CWS48012)
 


The kits sting has no APU grid, nothing, even the panel lines on the sting are not 100% correct. I did some scratch reshapes, but the set surely does better...

Finally, for the nose, there are several aftermarket options, but I've seen articles showing that the connection to the sawed off kit parts is not great and you end up filling & losing more detail on the kit than with my method - there is enough plastic on the kit nose to re-sand it to correct shape...

In any case, enjoy the kit and the beautiful plane, I surely did!

Uff! Most dramatic story! All incredients for a great plot, cliffhanger included... But I hope we won´t see a episode "Su-34 : return of the particle" :)

RES KIT very good set. There is still a good company AMIGO MODELS from Chelyabinsk (South Ural) which also makes excellent epoxy nozzles.
