Trumpeter SU-9 1/48


Recommended Posts

Hi, this is a project that has already been completed,but I use photos to record some steps and hope to share it with me, I am from China, where the first post here, I don't know if it meets the rules, don't know if Can see my photos, so test, you can see, please tell me, thank you.
This is Trumpeter in the mid-2015 production of the kit, which may be the first SU-9 in the history of the 1/48 injection scale model.The contents of the kit look a bit disappointing, simplifying the cockpit, as well as other details, simple and wrong exhaust nozzle, landing gear and wheel bay. Fortunately, the fit is very good.

I like the full rivets of the aircraft, so at first I made the rivets out

From left to right are:1. The original wing of the kit    2. Make the rivet and spray the primer    3. Make the rivet without spraying the primer    4. Same as 2

Rivet is first made with a rivet wheel and then deepened with a needle,additional reinforcement skin, at the top.

The protrusions on both sides of the tail support are too small, remove it,remake.

Hi,

 

Off to a great start!

 

will follow your build!

 

Are you using any aftermarket to correct kit issues?

 

Thanks,

 

Ernie

thanks, 

When I made it, RedStar's resin remodel was not available in China, so I could only do it myself.:crying:

According to my study found that different periods of SU-9 in the details of some minor changes.In fact, in addition to the su-9U interception / trainer, the single-seat model su-9 is divided into early, medium and late production.
The most obvious detail feature is the "wing in front of the root" on both sides.
As the su-9 early and mid-term production continued T-3 the beginning of the design——left and right wing root installed two NR-30 30mm gun,so the "wing in front of the root" keep the hole in the gun and covered the round skin,and  keep the body corresponding to the location of the burn-resistant skin.
The number and location of the venting air intakes on the fuselage are also different, refer to the SU-9 for different periods in the picture below.

From top to bottom respectively, early, medium and late production su-9

I made a template,used to re-create the line here.

The details of the all-moving tailplane of the trumpeter are wrong
In fact, the su-9 all-moving tailplane is exactly the same, rather than symmetrical,
So the  all-moving tailplane upper left corresponds to the lower right,and  lower left corresponds to the upper right.

Ok that is just some faboulous work especially on the rivets. You must be a patient man with some serious skills with a riveter :worship:

 

Looking forward to more of your posts. Even though I have no real interest in this aircraft, as it is only in one scheme, I do appreciate your work. Plus you can always learn something from other modellers.

Thanks for the encouragement,I usually work very busy,so the update is slower, sorry...

These are the exhaust nozzle parts provided in the kit,it is wrong,so I try to make it again.

First make the inner ripple board,

RedStar resin parts of the nozzle details are good, but the ripple density is not right, and I can't buy,so give up RedStar resin part.

I cut a piece of aluminum skin,make it flat and polished smooth.

Fold along the line

In order to make ripples, I used a styrene sheet and a copper bar to make a simple aids

The finished ripple board, and the poor test pieces above.

At first, I tried to make a nozzle with a thin styrene sheet, but the above sliding structure made me very difficult.

Is this pile of things......:angry:

 

35918593550_7bb9eb8a6d_o.jpg

I tried to make one, but the lack of  Casting  conditions, to make a lot of it is a very difficult thing:angry::angry:

 

36313388185_07032bacfb_o.jpg

But I can make PE,haha...

 

36313399425_36447d5eac_o.jpg

36271123526_6a4e3bbde0_o.jpg

So the nozzle was made with PE.
