They are such good looking it truley is a shame to hide the framing. I'm sure your finnish work will look great.
Can't wait to hear of the testing.

Kevin:
Thanks for the kind words. It's so much prettier with the covering though; all shiny and smooth.

Kimble:
Is that the FiberClassics kit modified to the Su-35? Where's the paint scheme from? That's one nice thing about the Flankers; there are quite a few cool paint jobs out there.

Thanx......

Ectualy its unfair, the power system that is.
It isn't electric apart from the RX battery....

It has an AMT pegasus JET engine in it.

Made it from fiberglas covered foam with some car paint on top.
I used the decals from a plastic kit and blew them up. That took a lot of time to do as it was tiny.

One lame thing about this thing, i heaven't flown it myselfe.
I sold it becous i know sh*t about turbines and i didn't have the money enyway. I can't realy fly these things. Did you know that these turbine powered planes fly over a 100 mph on landing!

Now that these EDF planes are realy taking to the sky. I am thinking of making an electric Su-35. Then finaly i can fly the thing.

I wish you good luck on flying your Su-27, it looks great!

Kimble very nick looking plane. Like the paint scheme too.

Too bad it's a turbine though.
Don't worry - it can happen in the best of families.
