My latest project for a friend. It's Hobby Boss 1/72. I was contemplating a few colour schemes and decided the latest SU-34 colour scheme is closest real world 'what if'.

I like the low vis red stars.  I don't think I have any of them,

- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

I do like the paintwork in particular  :thumbsup:

Kit's Rule 1 ) Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage
Kit's Rule 2) The backstory can always be changed to suit the model

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Me, too. However, the grey/blue "Serdyukov scheme" as well as the low-viz markings were only fashionable for a few years, I think it was introduced around 2010, but reality quickly revealed that such a standardized scheme just does not work well anywhere, and the more colorful paint schemes as well as the old Red Stars (also without the integrated blue star) crept back onto Russion aircraft, esp. in tactical aviation.

The Su-57 looks very good in this livery, nevertheless, could have been around in this guise around 2012 or so?


Great work,  I might paint mine in RAF colours.


Thanks all. Would really like to see a Su-57 in other paint scheme or with a stealth nozzles.


Very nice. I  have a nearly finished one sat in a cardboard box  somewhere, I  painted it  in a grey/white/ blue block pattern.
