SMA BSC 2015 Entry #1: 1/48 Su-27UB Blue 52 pt14

Last bit of updates for today. You can see adding the lower braced wings helped a touch with the warpage, but there is still some angling issue. The wings should be perfectly horizontal. SOO using my jig and some bottles for weights, I hope that after a few days like this the proper angle will be there.

Now for the intakes…Since the wheel bays are a bit taller than the kit allows for a small bulge occurs across the length of the intakes, so some clamping and delayed glueing was in order. The ended up aligning pretty will with the lower exhaust sections, but there were a few gaps. A thin sheet of styrene helped with one side and putty overall will help with both.

Overall though, she’s looking like a Flanker. 🙂
