Kontrol Surfaces Komplex for Izdeliye T-10f


Secondary theme of this project:  Massive control surfaces.  Because  :smiley:

The canards are actually the Su-47 vertical tail, and the elevators are the canards themselves.... mounted to the elevators.  Each about 2x the area of the Berkut.

Because I like big tail....

The vertical tail is actually the sawed off wing of the Su-27.

Thanks folks!

Been off making decisions about the next level of detail.  Lots of filling & sanding.  Finally taking enough shape to give a visual update.

Couple areas where I marred up the filler that will need repainting, but you get the general idea.

Thinking about an 'Arctic Camo' paint scheme, so even though this is just the primer, some of the 'sprued' plastic started life as grey, so it's actually not a bad representation of what it will eventually consist of (though a little more thought put into the placement of said camo)

Cheers!

Put a white canopy and some landing gear doors on there and it would easily pass for some real-world wind tunnel model.  :smiley:
