This time something in 1:72 scale.
I completed the model a few days ago.
Model is Hobby Boss + Begemont Decals.

The biggest challenge on this scale is painting engines and decals.

The design is very futuristic, making the F-22 look old. Good job. Very convincing look.

That could be because the F-22 is old. The YF-22 flew in 1991, and production ended 6 years ago.

By way of comparison, the first YF4H Phantom flew in 1958 and the line was being put out to grass in the US and UK by 1992.

Speaking of modern it’s the first Russian jet I’ve seen that doesn’t leave a sooty trail behind it..looks like they’ve finally invented a fuel control unit that works!

 Few weeks ago, Sukhoi installed new engines, something like that.

I think they used to inject benzine. Gave the MiG-29s in particular a very smelly and dirty brown exhaust.
Raising exhaust temperature can help too. F-4s went smokeless in the 1980s doing that, with modded engines.

Great PAK-FA build. All that nozzle colouring in titchy scale - amazing!

Maybe, but the F-35 has similar configuration but is younger. I suppose Russians 3D vectoring nozzle tech give them more freedom aeordynamics wise.They can significantly reduce the rudders in size. Then the flying wing design is something that started with the F-16 way back and what we have today is the latest step in that evolution. I expect the next US fighter to look morel like the SU-57 than the F-22, with 3d nozzles and rudimentary rudders.
