1:144 "Dragon" What If project - Su-42 "Raptorski", 5-generation fighter (not yet seen PAK-FA project) with TVC-nozzles


A very interesting design, quite well executed - I like the paintwork as well.  The work on the nozzles is quite good too, and the whole thing looks quite advanced.  Lacks a weapons bay, something both the advanced tech demonstrators were designed to incorporate - both the Berkut and the MFI have or were designed for weapons bays in truth.

Overkill? Nah, it's Insurance.  So are the 20" guns.


I love this model! I don't know how I missed it. Great design and a very pretty paint scheme

That would be a great model in 1/72 but 1/144  :banghead: :thumbsup: :bow:
Do not condemn the judgement of another because it differs from your own. You may both be wrong.


1/144?  Seriously?  Nice!!!   :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

And maybe a 4.75 Gen fighter, too many roundy, pointy bits for a 5 gen fighter.

Still, love it!
