Su-27IB - 1/72 scale Su-34 prototype conversion

Recommended Posts

Finally finished - my Su-27IB conversion - combining the front end of an Italeri Su-34 mated to the back end of a Heller Su-27UB trainer to make the prototype Su-34.... (exactly what Sukhoi did! - grafting a new front end onto a Su-27UB)

The WIP is here......

 

I wanted to make my 'Platypus' as it was displayed to the leaders of the CIS countries near Minsk, Belorussia in 1992.... fully tooled up with a full load of dummy weapons...

Note the differences to the final production Su-34 - no fat tailboom, single main wheels, taller fins and metal radome.

I was trying to replicate this configuration as seen during the presentation to CIS leaders at Machulischi, near Minsk, Belarus.....
