Get you're own thread............ :P
That's the scheme I'm probably going to be using on mine, the decals set comes with stencils and decals.

Nah I bought these from Ebay

But I might look at a different set if you get the year relaxed, then I can do a nice camo scheme ;)

Nice Gary. If your preferred scheme was used prior to the fall of the Soviet Union, then go ahead mate as I don't have a problem with it. B)

I assume you're posted the link to highlight the 1991 formation date? www.begemotdecals.ru/doc/48-006%20Su-27%...%20Knights%20(1).pdf
Scheme 5 is 1989 and Scheme 11 was due 1990 even though it didn't appear in public until 1991 I can still do it because it still existed though it just wasn't public.
I would of liked to do the full colour version but that was 1991 (as I said earlier) so now we've established that it fits the timeline lets move on :D

I know what you mean.

I've been pulling bits together from all over for my Zvezda Cy-27SM. The Dream model PE looks good as nice as the Eduard...

Have fun with it...

Good to see you do a Flanker there G1. I Have the Academy SU-30M which is essentially the same kit with some extra weapons and a different nose/tail. Will be good to see how you go with it.
For those wondering, the Academy kit is the one used in both the wolfpack and eduard reboxings... It's a generally good kit despite being 1/50, not 1/48. Academy included the pitot tube in the overall length when in reality the length of the actual aircraft doesn't include the pitot.

Nice choice G1 B)

It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

All the academy flankers are... From memory, the new kinetic su33 is the correct length.
There is no real easy way to fix the length, I've seen some do 3 cuts to extend the fuselage awhile another I saw basically cut it into about 20-25 different pieces and spread the extra over the whole length.
Don't think you'll need to bother though, I challenge anyone who sees it on a display table pick that it isn't the right length, we are only talking a couple of feet difference or so.
The wingspan is fine as is the height, it's just the length so it is slightly shorter and fatter than it should be but overall it doesn't affect the look of it noticeably...
