Over the summer, when I am not working or doing the robotics class or other such stuff, I, having absolutely no social life, build models. I am currently working on a Su-27 "Naval Flanker", and a MiG-29 "Fulcrum"(I think that is the correct designation). These are fairly small, as they are 1:144 scale. Does anyone have a suggestion for paint schemes? If there is a certain paint scheme that has been used on an aircaft please post an image of it, for reference. Also, I am putting together an AH-64B Longbow(model, of course:p), and am curious if anyone has any suggestions or ideas about a good paint job. Any help would be appreciated.

Hmm, just a basic grey camoflage pattern. Might work, trying to think of what grey to use.

grey is the paint scheme that planes have when they roll off the factory line, i use olive drab on my models, or a tan-white & desert brown.

Yes, but I'm looking for a paint job to use on a Russian Naval fighter, not a USA desert fighter

Paint scheme usually depends on where the aircraft is going to be operating, such as were the 79th TFS A-10 Thuderbolt IIs stationed at RAF Woodbridge back in the 80s, were painted a darker shade of OD. I'm not Air Force. So to me, this is all speculative...

Roaming East! Where are you when I need you!? Please tell me you something about the fastmovers?

For the Flanker this is one of my favorite paint schemes. http://www.flygplan.info/images/SU-27%20Flanker.jpg

And here is one, tough it's a poor angle, of what I think it the flight demostration team's Flankers. But I've never acually verified that. http://www.flygplan.info/images/su27-04.jpg

Here is a very basic Fulcrum scheme. http://www.rusadventures.com/images/tour8big.jpg

I have some huge, huge books with all sorts of pictures off Migs and Sukois, plus American jets. Unfortuantly they are books so I can't very well post pictures.

P.S. what brand 1/144s did you buy? I've been building primarily Revel 1/48s for my aircraft but I'm running out of room.
