Su-57 Felon Russian 5th Gen Stealth Fighter Splinter Camo Paint Masks Set 1/48th
Suggested scale - 1/48th
Suggested kits - Zvezda Su-57 Felon
The set includes two sheets of masks (shown in the picture). The masks are made from thin masking tape, which is easy to be peeled off and doesn’t leave any stains. The tape is tested on clear and painted model too. If carefully removed after painting, they can be used over and over again. Material is flexible and easily applied over curved surfaces. Semi-transparent for easy and accurate placing.
The Su-57 Felon is the Russian answer to F-22 Raptor fifth generation stealth fighter. Still in pre-production phase, Felon’s actual capabilities are unknown. The engines used on the prototypes differ from the ones planned for the serial production airplanes. However constant delays forced Sukhoi to test the Su-57 /formerly known as PAK-FA/ with the old and available engines. Currently, this results in different data than planned. The actual specs of the new jet will most likely be known in few years time, after the originally planned engines for the Felon appear. Nevertheless, super-maneuverability of the Felon was demonstrated several times at airshows in Russia. The plane showed the same capabilities as the Su-35, which are so far unmatched. Thankfully to the latter, Su-57 Felon was chosen to appear in Top Gun sequel – Top Gun Maverick.
The Splinter Camo mask set covers one of the first paint options shown to the public. The camouflage scheme in this set is designed using Zvezda Su-57 Felon kit, which at the time of this mask set release is the only one available in that scale. Considering the fact that Zvezda kits are accurate size-wise compared to the original, it is safe to expect that this set will fit most Su-57 in quarter scale released in the future. Even though this specific splinter camouflage is not featured in the Zvezda kit, it is still the most recognizable one when it comes down to Sukhoi Su-57 Felon. Some of the pre-production 5th generation Stealth fighters wear digital camouflage scheme, which is the one suggested in the Zvezda kit. There is also a third option, which is a two tone paint scheme, that is the least interesting of them all.
