Hobby Boss Su-34 Fullback, full of missiles

A ridiculously large model of a ridiculously large airplane with a ridiculously large missile load:







Six A-A missiles and five A-G missiles. Raaaar!

Is this enough missiles?



I've gotta take more pics, but I have to get the right background. I have light blue, medium blue, and dark blue backgrounds. The airplane is light blue, med...

I tried green and purple, but it looked awful. The above gray BG is actually lime green, desaturated in photoshop. I like it, but I'm not doing that to two dozen photos.

If you are good in 'photoshop' layer in a sky background!

If not go outside. (You will need to light from underneath most likely.)

John P,

Your build looks great! The paint job is outstanding and the photography is VERY good too.

Jeez, I built one of these in 1/72 and thought it was massive (bigger than an Avro Arrow, the biggest plane I still had at the time).

Where do you keep big planes like this to keep them out of harm's way?

I like the new back ground as well!


Did you take a photo of your set up - lights, background, etc, by chance. Would love to see how you did your lighting.

Awesome build, and fast, too. The kit isn't out for long, isn't it?

Any comments on the quality of the kit? I read that the nose has issues.

On a shelf with the rest of them! Note that the rest of them have nose probes and antenna broken off over the years, so i don't know how out of harm's way it actually is.

I think I ordered it as soon as I saw it on Squadron's website. Too cool to pass up. The reason I built it right away was that the box was so friggin huge, I couldn't find any place to put it!!!

Shape issues with the nose, you mean? I don't know about that. Fit and engineering of the whole kit is excellent, though.

Whatever weapons mix you choose, you'll have about a million weapons left over. The kit has every missile, tank and bomb the damn thing can carry. I was going to load up the inner pylons with MERs full of small bombs, but the plane took me 4 weeks to build, and I couldn't face another week of assembling 24 (or so) bombs. There's a point I just wanna finish and move on to the next model!

Thanks for the info.

The Su-34 is my favorite modern aircraft, but I don't have space for the 1/48 kit. Maybe I'll go for the new 1/72, or finally build my old Italeri one...

John P,

I looked at the link to the extra photos and they are very nice. The background color is a good choice.
