Don't know who else uses this to attach PE, Elmers contact adhesive, then after it cures up Future along the edges just in case to seal the edges. Seems to work well on flat surfaces. Putting numerous flying surfaces together but waiting to attach them, instruction drawings are good but care is required to make the painting easier. More top come.

Two Bobs Su-24/Su-34 sheet gives some decals for the APU inlet & exhaust. I photocopied the sheet and made templates of the decals. I used some .010 styrene and cut the shapes where the decals will be applied. I thinned down the pieces and used multiple applications of Mr. Cement S to form them around the compound curves, then a light sanding to smooth them in. Pretty cheesy but I do not have anything to mimic the intake grating. The Exhaust flap should look good. Disappointed but could not think of anything else.

No putty required, just a little MS 500 & MS 1000 in a few spots. The intakes were the worst area so far ( Not really too bad ). I had to rework the intake
interiors. Recommendation is to build them up, pour the rear color (Aircraft Gray) let the paint cure then plug the area you want to remain gray and spray the front half.

The intakes do not have Tamiya fit so square them up so you do not have a step, fill the small gaps with Evergreen styrene rod .010 & .015 and the result will be minimal sanding and re-scribing.

Still have some re-scribing to do up front but the other main exterior parts have excellent fit.

Getting close to that favorite time of the build, PAINT! Primer first of course, a few small things to take care of first. Khibiny ECM pods on the wing tips require a small fillet on the leading edge which needs scratched and wheel well masking. Really liking this build and this airframe, was leaning towards the 3 tone blue scheme, but second guessing the aubergine (Eggplant) Gray / blue scheme is pretty nice too. Any thoughts?

John

Images really show the change you made on the nose. Nice work! On a side note, has anyone heard when exactly the Kitty Hawk Fullback will be released? Rumor had it that KH did some re-tooling after the HobbyBoss release and that is why it was delayed.

Back on the build, got her primed & a few surface imperfections corrected. By far the most tedious part so far was getting the canopy blended. I had to really spend the time for a decent fit. I don't think it was self inflicted, it did not fit like a $100.+ model should. Anyhow I am satisfied with where it is now, I have some fresh masks for the glass and should be laying the camo down soon.

One 30ml bottle of MRP-202 later, big airplane, love Mr. Paint, Gunze Mr. Color too. Masked areas have been sprayed white & metal, lots of painting left to do, but moving forward.

Finished the scheme, more painting on little details and plenty of everything else. Mr. Paint lays down very nice at very low pressure about 5-6 psi, only negative thing is it gets behind the Teflon seal back to the trigger valve and a complete teardown and cleaning is required. No biggie though, worth it for a cool camo scheme.

John

Thanks Matt, I have a few but my go to favorite for the past few years is the Iwata Revolution CR with the .3mm conversion. It is easy to tear down completely, clean, and reassemble. I freehand my subjects and feel real comfortable with the .3mm needle. I use lacquers and enamels cut with Gunze self-leveling thinner, no clogs or durability issues, Iwata's work best when they impeccably clean.

The landing gear, doors, and wheels are on and the Hell Duck is up on it's legs. This is a tedious stage of assembly with the amount of parts involved, some are very fragile (Door Actuators). The metal inserts give strength, so no worries about the gear legs. I used the Eduard Brassin' wheel set and it is beautiful, especially the nose gear debris guard. Still no light at the end of the tunnel on this one, loads of tiny fragile detail, engine cans, decals and loads of stencils, light weathering and the load out, which is quite extensive. Thanks for looking, more to come.

John
