Popped the cherry, cut some plastic & resin, & sprayed some paint. Nothing exciting just some Eduard PE rudder pedals & scuff plates, scratched a throttle quadrant, & some Quick Boost K-36's. Made a blank instrument panel for Eduard color PE instruments, normally don't like them but these have some relief to give them depth. More to come.

Here is the HB tub with Eduard PE interior & QuickBoost K-36 seats, Sukhoi Mr. Paint Interior Blue gray. Nothing too extravagant since the canopy is closed, Eduard did provide an overhead console for the center of the canopy and a nice HUD frame & other instrumentation. The inside of the canopy has to be worked for some flash curtains a'la F-111 so anything visible will be thru the windscreen & canopy windows. Should look busy enough though.

Thanks for the encouragement fellas.

Top pic is the Gsh-30-1 as fitted on the Su-34 and other Flanker derivatives.



This is what HB gives you. Looks like they had old drawings or totally screwed the pooch!




I opened the panel, fitted a muzzle and fairing, should look the biz when finished. ( I Hope)

John









Reworked the muzzle with slightly larger diameter and extended it a little further out.

Not a lot of modeling in August, managed to finish the cockpit except for the flash curtains on the side windscreen. The Eduard masks work great, you only get one set so I bought 2 so I could paint the inside of the canopy. I used the Eduard PE as a template for the center beam console & some Evergreen Strip for something to mount the flash curtains on. Still have to engineer the curtains. All this for a closed cockpit.

Looking good John. I'll be following along. I'm on the fence about buying this kit.

Done piddling with this cockpit, going to close the canopy and get on with the build. Made the blast shades from paper and a few color tweaks. Close enough for me.

The fuselage cockpit opening is slightly wider than the cockpit glass. I had to work a few areas with MS 500 & MS1000. I prolly will have to do some final blending after primer. Annoying but it is the focal point of the hunchback.

Moved forward a little, the upper & lower fuselages fit really well....but some sanding on this box like structure that is not visible that forms a little well around the door opening above the nose gear bay. This was discovered after fitment of the nose gear bay.



The forward inside corners of the lower fuselage had to be trimmed about 0.5mm in order for the gear bay to fit snug in its receiving slots, this with some slight sanding above gave a perfect fit between the cockpit bulkhead and nose gear well.



No issues with the main gear wells.



I got the best fit I could get on the top by putting each half of the tail stinger on individually, a little gap was left on top which I filled with CA.




The bottom of the tail boom is a different story, no biggie but a very poor fit. A little Evergreen strip and some sanding will soon fix this. Eduard chaff/flare PE will enhance this area.

About 20 min with a sanding stick and some wet sanding on the nose, you be the judge if you need a resin replacement.




The tail boom cleans up nice, no putty, just some evergreen strip & MS 500.
Need to figure out how to fit the PE flare panel flush in the bottom of the tail.
