Welcome to the 2018 Sukhoi Campaign! This campaign will be all about the fine stable of aircraft coming from the Sukhoi Design Bureau.

The campaign will run from 1 August, 2018 through 1 March, 2019.

A reminder that this campaign still doesn't have a ribbon. I've proposed a couple of different possibilities, including the older Suhoi logo:





And the newer one:





Of course, this ain't my campaign. Any preferences? Any other ideas? I just hate seeing that space on the campaign page stay blank.

I'm all for the older version Michael, I'm thinking about building the ICM 1/48 Su-2 for this campaign.

Hi,
There are many choices in the Sukhoi family. I pick a pair of aircraft, Trumpeter Su-33UB and VES Model (?) Su-15TM in 1/72th scale.


Cheers,
K.

And here's my entry (Su-15UM trainer):


Trumpeter kit from 2002. I think it has some accuracy issues, but I'll anyway build it out of the box. Haven't decided if it'll be in Ukraine or Russian markings.

Here is my entry:







It's a really big jet. I will build it the red 21 in Syria. I have to look which weapons does this jet carry.

Michael, I would go for the top ribbon. Maybe add a blue or red background. The previous Sukhoi campaign used the new design with a Russian flag as background. I guess it should look different from the previous one.

Ryan, I build that kit some years back with a lot of after market stuff as well. It is a tough one. The fit is decent, but there are lot of things to improve! Looking forward to follow your build.

I just signed up, but have not decided yet on what to build.
