The real color of these aircraft are nothing like the artwork. I might add that the dekkals are prodece in Ukraine as well. Below is the real thing. Artist rendering is the first plane on the sheet.

.....and off we go. Installed the P.E fiddly bits in the Aires pit, and got the side panels cleaned up. On to the IP next, then paint tomorrow. Glued the intakes together as well  and hit the seams with some Tamiya white.

Paint down on the cockpit. Used a Modern US Navy Blue Gray, looks the part to my eye. Airbrush paints mostly MRP, and brush paints Ammo by Mig. I also bought myself a purposed designed dry brush by Mig and I love it.  Did a little dry brushing with some Light Ghost Gray. Now some color.

I've started the nose gear well also. Grateful that there aren't really any hydraulic lines to speak of, and tge gear doors mostly are closed up on a parked aircraft. Bad seams in tricky places so I use water soluble Apoxy Sculpt to fill seams then smooth with damp qtip.
