Hi all!

 

 

Late as usual, but here´s my build for the twin-einginge GB;

 

 

36065326480_2be42b4b05_c.jpg

 

 

 

It´s slightly started, tough.

 Here´s what I have done;

…and there´s a LOT still left in the box;

Hope it´s OK, I´d say around 25% done.

 

 

 

To be continued…

 

Cheers!

 

Stefan

Hi all!

 

 

Time to get this build rolling….

 

 

 

I´m starting with cleaning up the AIRES Cockpit, Trump´s ain´t bad, but the detail can´t keep up with the AIRES one.

 

 

Aires parts;

 

 

Hud/Instrumentpanel;

 

 

45941490004_a46840d93e_b.jpg

 

 

Side wall parts;

 

 

46613760952_c1fdb17abf_c.jpg

 

 

Seat and tub, I changed the seat for a Quickboost one, I prefer painting the seatbelts instead of trying to fold some etched parts.

 

 

45751189215_3b6e6806fc_c.jpg

 

 

Detail in the tub is incredible, so much detail, some of the best I ever have seen…

 

 

46613760672_12310860a6_c.jpg

 

 

Just watch the wall behind the seat!

 

 

45751189135_c0c44216c1_c.jpg

 

 

Almost a crime to have the seat in place, obscuring the wonderful details!

 

 

46613761132_043d0bd31e_c.jpg

 

 

Aires instrument panel is the old-school etch and acetate, but I´m gonna use a pre-painted panel from Eduard.

I don´t like the rubber wheels you get in the kit so I´ll use these from Fisher Models instead;

 

Lovley detail….

First a primer, Alclad Black Microfiller….

…and we are rolling!

That is a really nice resin set. I settled on having mine OOB (apart from the added intake covers), as you said, the trumpeter cockpit isn't bad, but that detail is insane!

Me neither, but I loaded her up with as much weight I could (I´m quite a bit ahead of the tread and have just closed up the fuselage....),  just to be sure.

 

I hate tailsitters! :D

 

If you use the metal gears, It sure can hold it.

Hi all!

 

The nose gear well assembled;

46778191114_d3675ff0ea_c.jpg

 

 

Trumpeter kindly have included metal-reinforced landing gears, this will hold the model securely!

The nose-gear is supplied in two sections (base and gear) so i can glue the base now and leave the gear for later.

 

But we can do a dry-run, just for the joy of it!

Trumpy´s Engine-parts looks fine;

 

 

 

47501884791_56556c98d2_c.jpg

 

 

---but they can´t compete with Aires, even the weld-seams inside the cans are there!

 

 

 32559738237_cc96f6274d_c.jpg

 

 

Engines completed, many parts here….

 

Intake- and exhaust fans are super detailed by Aires!

 

 

47501884761_120a34844a_c.jpg

 

 

Engines, exhausts and intakes done;

 

 

47501884721_2aa539d237_c.jpg

 

 

The cockpit is painted with MRP-195, Sukhoi Cockpit Blue-Grey;

 

 

The details really pops out now!

Side panels;

More to come soon…

Hi All!

 

 

The wheels are primed with  Alclad Black Microfiller (ABMF) and then painted with the lurid green color the Russians use for the rims;

 

 

40535843633_416f3e4805_c.jpg

 

 

The burner cans were primed with ABMF and then painted with Alclad steel, burnt metal, exhaust manifold and several more colors.

 

 

 32559746217_b67bf54168_c.jpg

 

 

The engines were primed with ABMF and then painted with Alclad Aluminium at the front and the rear part got some Alclad steel.

32559746147_8e4f20f513_c.jpg

 

 

I`ll give them a wash later, but I´m not gonna put in too much work here as they won´t ever be seen again.

 

 

Painting of the details in the cockpit have begun, there´s a lot to do here, and here it WILL be seen!

47060756944_d720ae4406_c.jpg

 

 

The side panels got the treatment too;

More to come soon….

 

Cheers! :beer:
