    1/72 Trumpeter Su-27UB with some aftermarket

    Some detail were added to the external side walls of the intake trunks, since these are part of the main wells: Next step was the detail painting of these areas, in anticipation of installing the air intakes: Also painted the front wheel bay: And that,s all for now. As always comments and sugestions are welcome. Cheers. Juan

    1/72 Trumpeter Su-27UB with some aftermarket

    Hi again and Happy New Year all! After the Christmas season I was able to resume the work on this kit. I started by detailing the main landing gear wells. Removed the casted detail on the upper fuselaje that conform the roof of the bay, and I replaced it with these photoetched parts from a set of Wolfpack-d. As you can see, in the lower of the pic I began to add some detail made of copper wire and plastic card and strips. Here some more: And this is other section of the right wheel well fully detailed: Finished and primed: Here, the rear part of the left well almost in its original appearance, for comparison. And the same right well finished and primed: I also detailed the front wheel well: More to follow...
  5. hi Dan! I am a bit embarrased, as I, ve checked those instructions I said and no top view of the said aircraft appears... i have also been saerching around the web and found this web LINK. Is this the "mother Load" you say? Hi Matt! many thanks for your compliments! RGDS Juan
  6. Hi again! With my Phantom conveniently stored and put on hold for some time I quickly was able to start with a new project. This kit has been on my stash for some time and I always have a feeling for this aircraft and I really like those twin seat versions of some fighters. The kit itself is well know and has its detractors and bad reviews, but I think you can get a good result from it... I will be using some aftermarket: Dream Model photoetched set for cockpit and exterior details, Master pitot: Aires buener cans, quickboost ejection seats and nose cone: As you can see on a previous pic, some PE parts (from the Dream Model set) were added to the seats. Here they are primmed: work quickly started by the cockpit, with the help of the photo etched parts, and I also added some details from scratch: I removed the floor from the original cockpit and lowered it as I feel that it was too high as it was. Sorry for this poor pic. Some details were also reproduced on the interior side walls of the cockpit: Also the instruments panel cover was improved, although this part is not yet finished... Some photoetched parts were added around the fuselage, following the instructions: All for now! Hope you like this new project. Comments are welcome. Rgds Juan
  7. I also opened the IFR door: And scratchbuilt it: The tailhook also needs some maintenance, right? So I cut it apart : And built its ineterior from scratch as well as the cover that has been removed: Also the opened area on the front fuselage has been rebuiltas I was not very happy with my previous atempt: And tha,s all for now and for some time... Sadly I have to admit that I have been overwhelmed by the complication that I have imposed on myself with the model and this has caused me to lose the motivation to continue with the project, so it has been put on hold for some time... I have started another kit, triying to recover the "mojo" but I will return over this Phantom as soon as possible. This is a promise! As always comments and suggestions are welcome RGDS Juan
  8. Hi again! I must say sorry one more time for all the delays with the updates on this project. I have involved myself on a very demanding project that includes a lot of scrachtbuilding and have been suffering some frustration with the slow progress that i am achieving... Anyway, here you have some more pics. As you can see in this photo I had opened a record on the left side of the fuselage: Although it already had the two parts (front and rear) of the fuselage assembled, during the work with the kit these were accidentally separated. This allowed me to open one more cover on the right side, showing one more section of the pipes along the fuselage and the air intake: The interior was made from scratch: Here is it dryfitted in place: Then, the front and rear fuselga halves were reunited again, and the resin air intakes installed: The frames of these openings were made from small photoetched strips from Eduard. Not very happy with the result, as those strips are very delicate and they have finished slightly curved, but they will have to serve. My crazyness to open panels and registers led me to open the compartment that houses the liquid oxigen reservoir in the lower part of the fuselage, just behind the front landing gear bay: The colver will be displayed in open position: Missing is the spherical bottle that I have made from scratch but don,t have a pic of it. More to follow...
  9. Hi Dan! I,ve come across to your post by accident just now. FYI this jet in particular is present on the Authentic Decals sheet #AD72-10. I own it, so I will search for it and I can scan the instructions for you if you are still interested. Just let me know. RGDS Juan
  10. Many thanks, friend! Cheers. Juan
  11. Ok. Looks like my photos are too big and the forum only allows me to upload three each time... Continuing with the radar: That´s all for now. Will try to add some more pics during this week. As always, comments and suggestions are welcome. TIA. Juan
  12. Trying again... At the beginning of the thread I had shown the front fuselage with the nose cone (the radome) cut appart. My intention is to show the radar extended, as being maintained. Here is it: More to follow...
  13. Hi! Looks like something went wrong with my yesterday´s update, as I had loaded some more pics and text and they have disappeared. Will try to post again as soon as possible. RGDS. Juan.
  14. Hi all! First of all sorry for all this time without any updates on this thread. Summer, life, job and a lot of procrastination are the culprits of this delay... Sorry again and I promisse that I will try to be more constant with this... Last pics that I posted were of the wheels. Here you can see also the landing gear legs and undercarriage doors painted and weathered: I still nedd to paint some details. And here we have the airbrakes made out from Eduard PE parts. Painted, weathered and with some left over decals to add some interest to them And these are the underbelly auxiliary intake doors that I have shown previously. Here painted and with some decals added: Sorry for the poor pic...
