Luckily, you didn't destroy it during the final steps, as you have written.
I know that feeling, stuff like that happens to me often, at least I think so. It can be rather frustrating.

Still, it's a very nice looking bird. Great colours and subtle weathering. 👍
Especially love picture 12.

Looks really nice with the decals. Really love the white erusian emblem on the orange wingtips.
It sucks that the paint on the engines came off. 🙁
Is it better with the lacquer now?

@WhiteGlint Yes, I used Mr. Color Super Metallic this time, it's just as shiny and a lot more sturdier. Some more enamel paint came off during the weathering process, luckily it doesn't warrant a respray. I should probably put my Xtreme Metal paints away for now.

@pic 78 and the white lines: I try to have a not too sharp bent in the backdrop between the bottom and the back wall. Never get rid of it completely, but an as large as possible radius in the bend and playing round with angles between light and camera can reduce it significantly.

Very nice progress mark 👍 having no clue about russian armament - what is the thing you built during the last steps? Looks like an airborne panzerschreck. A big one. 🙂

Daniel, it's S-25O-PU, unguided air-to-surface missile.

She is looking very crisp and smart 👍 May I ask you to share how you achieve the heat-discoloured metal finishes? Your work is soo subtle and beautifully achieved!

> May I ask you to share how you achieve the heat-discoloured metal finishes?
Not a secret of course. It's very easy to say and explain, but need some practice to use.
1. Black primer under metallic.
2. Few metallic colours (I'd prefer AK Xtreme Metall series) lighter when in real. Masking tape helps to split colors (usually - steel, pale metal, exhaust metal)
3. Finally - tamiya clears (x-19\22\23\24\25) by hand - with low pressure and random apply.

Really nice Flanker. 👍
The first time I see an aircraft where the shark mouth is not on its nose. Looks really nice as well on the intakes.

The Flanker is a real beauty, nice collection. Also, very nice job on the Su-57's camo. Super crisp and clean!

Many thanks, Evgeny; your skill and ability have created these subtle and convincing effects 🙂

Alas ...even after all that gouge. Mine is good; but not as nice as yours. Excellent build.

@paul: thanks again mate, does that mean it gave you trouble?
many thanks arif!

First, I made mine in-flight. So although it's a nice way to show off the ordnance in a turn, it lost some of the detail. Second, I haven't perfected the engine discoloration that you did so well. Third, after I painted the top the color you recommended, I didn't like it and painted it another color that seemed a better match. After THAT color, I didn't like that one and now I like your color better. Whatever! It looks good and I'm progressing and having fun. But part of the fun for me is of course always improving so I appreciate folks who show their work on Scalemates. It's helps all of us become better.
