Past builds and these two are super.  Your Aerodrome Imagineering department must work overtime.   :smiley:

Loving your creations. I have not done any modelling in decades but it still have that fascination and I was wondering what the yellowish material is that you use to fill in the above image.

.... looking again and I see that its sliced and diced parts from a third kit ?

They sure do, if only the manufacturing department could keep up! Although I am getting some serious bench time lately, who knows how long that will last.

The yellow stuff on the body is epoxy putty, the yellow stuff on the tail is just yellow plastic sheet. Not sure what you mean by third kit though? The tailplane is from a 1/144 fighter jet and the engines are just resin cast copies of the engine from the kit.

This one:


Anyway on to new business:

I decided to crack open an old idea I had of a modified Flanker. It'll be an ace combat inspired build that incorporates some ideas from the X-02 Wyvern (central missile bay and intake mounted missile cradle) onto a SU-27.

To start I used a stalled build of an even older idea that didn't pan out. Its a dragon 1/144 SU-35. I cut off the canards, but thats no big deal I'll just put them back.

Then I crafted the central missile bay and missiles (these are R-77Ms), then I cutaway some space and did a test fit. But something just didn't feel right.

Then I discovered why it didn't feel right. ITS. TOO. SMALL. Here it is on top of a trumpeter Flanker and a quick google search confirms that the dragon kit is undersized. Now I have to wait for some F-toys Flankers to arrive, I'm not using the trumpeter because that's a 2-seater and I need a single. I was quite excited to start this build too. :icon_crap:

I thought all the different coloured parts were different kits you had blended.

Got my hands on a more appropriate sized flanker, work can resume:

Final gluing and hopefully the last coat of putty applied (I know it wont be, but a man can dream).
