Good evening people of model makers. Here is my latest effort: the Flanker of the Russian aerobatic team. The kit is the infamous 1/48 scale Academy and these are the aftermarket in the kit:
-Air intake grilles (Metallic Details MD4804)
-Exaust nozzle set (North Star Models NS48030)
-Decals "Russian Knight Flanker's" (Begemot BT48006)
-Correct nose (Quikboost QB48116)
-Pitot tube (Master 48-066)
-Static Discargers (Master 48-113)
-Pitot tubes (Quickboost QB48856)
-Antennas (Quickboost QB48129)
-Flaperons (Quickboost QB48310)
-Exterior (Eduard 48507)
-Wheel bay (Aires 4549)
-Cockpit (Aires 4262)
I had to make several corrections and add details such as sub-wing pylons. The colors used are the really beautiful Akah; they are easily sprayed but they are very delicate: they only scratch when looking at them but they have really realistic colors.
I show you some photos of the construction and the finished model.
Thanks for watching and for your comments.
Now the stages of painting.
