1/48 Academy Su-30MK

Gallery Article by Ulysses Almeida on Nov 29 2013



This is an adaptation of the Academy Su-27 UB. I added some parts and modified others to make this superb Academy kit look like the 30 MK 502 exhibition plane. Some things were done, such as moving of the bulb in front of the canopy to the side and making of a new windshield and twin front wheels. The decals are from an atrocious attempt of reproducing the MK30 by Minihobby.

Painting was very simple since the plane is monochromatic. I used my own mix of paint.

I made this kit out of my passion for these beautiful jets. Hope you enjoyed it.
