G.W.H. 1/48 Su-27UB “Syniy 74” splinter scheme

Recommended Posts

I’ll give Trumpy’s 1/32 Su-27UB a go, with Linden Hill decals and Aires resin details.

Edit: To have a slight chance of finishing this project on time, I’ll be switching to 1/48, more particularly the awesome Su-27UB from Great Wall Hobby.

Change of plans, from the humongous Trumpeter kit with all the needed resin, to an almost OOB 1/48 kit.

I guess I’m a bit like the Russian army: I ran into some logistical difficulties. Somehow I couldn’t find half of the aftermarket sets I know I have for this kit. Found some, while a couple of others are still MIA. I’m on my last nightshift at the moment, so I hope to start later in the day or tomorrow. Thanks for the patience! 😬

I know that feeling. Hope you find everything.

I know the same feeling all too well.  I try to keep all my resin on one draw, all the PE in and other by scale, so at least I have a fighting chance of finding what I need. Even this at times doesn't always work.

Good luck funding the MIA AM.

Keep 'em comin

It’s slow going. I think I have all I need now. Nice thing is that ResKit and Armory are Ukrainian companies.


I have the Zacto nose and inlets for ages in my stash. I had meant them for the single-seater, the one I have is the first edition, non-Zactoman-copied kit. I was of two minds if I wanted to use these bits on the UB, keeping in mind that there are some shape-errors in the forward fuselage section and windshield that I don’t see myself correcting. But since February 24th I have decided that the single-seater will some day be built in Ukraine’s digital scheme and not as a Russian or Belarussian aircraft. Although I have the masks from Foxbot Decals, the decalsheet for the details like registration, badges etc. that is also needed is next to impossible to get, as Foxbot is also from the Ukraine and they have at the moment better things to do than worry about shipping decals! So that one will have to wait until the “orcs” (as the Ukrainians call them) are ordered home by rasPutin.

In any case, thanks for the patience, to see progress, I’m afraid you’ll have to exercise some more of that. To lighten the wait, here’s a Ukrainian folk song with a contemporary twist:

Undertitling included.

I have edited the title and opening post: I’ll be building the 1/48 Great Wall Hobby Su-27UB instead. The 1/32 Trumpeter kit is a little bit too involved to reasonably be finished around the deadline of this GB. The GWH kit offers the accurate shapes and details without having to graft a plethora of resin onto the base kit. The first actions in the cockpit have been done, although not interesting enough yet to show in pictures.

So I’m still asking you for patience. To get through that waiting period, here’s another Ukrainian folk song:
