1/144 Amodel - Beriev Be-10 "Mallow" - Izdelye M [WIP]
« on: January 03, 2019, 06:33:32 AM »
Hi mates,

i'm assembling this 1/144 Amodel kit:













The Beriev Be-10, also known as Izdelye M, (NATO reporting name: Mallow) was a twin engined, turbojet powered, flying-boat, patrol bomber built by the Soviet Union from 1955.

The Be-10 is an all-metal high-wing monoplane with the engines located beneath the wing roots and with splayed-out tailpipes. To minimize the risk of water ingestion, the engine air intakes are located on the forward fuselage section with spray fences on either side of the bow protecting the engines from water ingestion.

The fuselage was a two step design with a high length to beam ratio to improve rough water handling, v-section planing bottom, two steps and was divided into nine water-tight compartments the forward and rear compartments being pressurised. Engine nacelles for the Lyul'ka AL-7F engines were attached to the fuselage sides under the wing centre-section.

Initial assembling steps:











First layer of primer

That looks fantastic, for an AModel kit. I love their subjects, but building their kits is never easy.

Every time I see on of these flying boats I imagine it painted yellow and doing a water drop.

Floating in the sea sounds like a great idea. A little wake at the bow and some turbulence from the jet exhaust?
