A couple of weeks ago I received a delivery that made me clean my bench from all other projects and start a new one.



Haven't done much modern jets, think my latest one was the Viggen but this looks to be a great kit and I would like to share my progress with you all.

First task: Cockpit, lost the photo of the other parts but this is the parts for the ejection seat.



Interesting solution to do the harness as a separate plastic part, but I think it looks good. Used the supplied decals for the switches/buttons. Hesitated at first but after lots of micro set and sol, I like the result. 




Next up wheel wells
Parts:



And everything installed and painted. Think my grey is too dark, but I will lighten it up in a later stage



Fuselage halves are together



Started to work on the intakes and exhaust nozzles.




Nozzles partly glued and partly dry fitted, need some more clean up




So far so good, will keep you posted

Thanks for looking!

Great start to what looks to be a fun build.  I built an SU-27 a year or two ago, these birds are great to make nice and dirty with lots of weapons.

I'll be watching this one.

I really like the look of the Flanker, and as a kit the detail looks fantastic. A very good start so far Daniel, I'm in watching this one develop now.

Thanks for following along guys! Working in a slow but steady pace. Due to the fine weather here I don't get much bench time. But I've made some progress.

Slats and flaperons



Intakes



And with the intakes/nacelles installed the wheel wells look like this





Next up the nozzles, started painting the insides, will share some pics later.

Thanks for looking!

As promised nozzles









Will add some more effects in there when I decided the right angle for the powered down thrust vectoring nozzle

Just now seeing this thread--nice. Ive got a GWH Mig29 in the stash and the detail is exciting as it is in your kit here. I especially like the top over bottom fuselage--NO CENTER LINE SEAM!!
Great work so far--subscribed.

Thanks Ted!

I'm back after a great summer away from work and unfortunately also away from the bench.

Started painting the engine covers and nozzles all base layers are down but there's a long way to go.

Next step is to try to emulate all the heat staining  that these seem to get, they turn in to all kind of shades of blue, orange, violet etc. Something like this

Thanks for watching!

Great work you’ve got going on! The picture of the real nozzle really defines the color changes in the metals from heat. GWH makes some nice kits.

Thanks Ted it sure is a great kit, only mishap so far is that I struggled a fair bit with the few decals I've used so far. Don't know if it's the decals or me or the setting solutions I use but I can see the carrier film around the stencils. I've ordered after market decals from begemot that I hope will solve my problems.

Anyhow last couple of evenings I kept working on the engines/nozzles trying to achive a decent representation of the heated metal.

I've used inks, tamiyas clear blue, orange, green and smoke along with oils mainly yellow ochre, purple red and cerulean blue. A pin wash with AK's engine and turbine wash and a layer of satin varnish later this is the result

 Thanks for looking, getting closer to the spray stage, but before that I will add the vertical stabilizers.

Decal dilemma! I’ve read that if you keep applying the top decal solution that the edges will eventually disappear. I’m always afraid that I will soak through the gloss coat and make a mess. I think? another technique is to take a blade and prick the surface of the decal and then apply more top solution.
At any rate the nozzles are fantastic. They look very much like the photos of the real thing you posted!

Thanks guys!

I've tried most things with the decals. But I only got micro sol and set maybe these decals need something more potent? The begemot decals arrived to day and look very good so hopefully I will be alright, the only decals I've put on are inside the intakes and don't show to much.

Just a few bits left and then masking and paint.

Just love the overall shape of this aircraft
