Su-35/33 and other swiveling Flanker nozzles

Recommended Posts

Does anyone out there make a set of swiveled exhaust nozzles for of some of the current Flanker-family jets like the -35, -30MKI, etc?

 

Ive tried scratchbuilding, but it hasn't worked out yet. 

 

Thanks,

 

Chris

Not to bug you on this - but any decision on making them in 1/72 for Hasegawa too? :)

A-a-ah... I shall discuss this with my partner :)  Can you provide me with exact dimensions / diameter of the model nacelles tail parts?

I only have the Su-33 kit myself at the moment so i dont have the Su-35S kit. (lack of resin exhaust is basically what has kept me from buying/building it!) But i believe their Su-33 exhaust and nacelles should have the same diameter as the Su-35S kit. Measuring the Su-33 exhaust they are 16.5mm. I am sure others who has the Su-35S kit at hand and calipers is able to provide more accurate measurements.

I don't know of a specific aftermarket for the type of nozzle you're referring to (there could be), but when I did my SU-30MKI a few years back I used the regular Aires resin exhausts, but cut them from the casting block at an angle and then filled, sanded, scribed as necessary to accomplish the look of them.

The Hasegawa Su-35S nozzle diameter is 18mm
