1/32 Carbon SU-27 Twin 32mm


Well its been over 10.5 years since I started the 1/32 F-16 build and I am going to try it again! I had an impulse buy while traveling and picked up a 1/32 scale SU-27 and decided to give it a whirl. The build will be just like the F-16 and the F-4 but will incorporate a lot of the knowledge that I learned from those jets. The molds will be designed from the start for resin infusion and ease of build with the same overall structure. Here we go!

The fuselage is almost joined. I started working on the parting plane for everything else. Holes had to be drilled for the locating pins and one piece needs a groove to rest in.

Hey Dan..Great to see you back at it! I was just looking at the F4 thinking it has been too long..Way to many projects getting in the way..Mostly going to work...Cant wait to see how you do on this one
FYI if you ever get the urge you know where your molds are and can barrow them any time

Getting closer to making molds. So far it has been a lot of filling and sanding getting everything just right. Each engine nacelle will be removable and there will be one more hatch on the front bottom for the radio and battery. The odd shapes are all to fill in holes and to make sure that there are no negatives.
