  1. From chinese sources, Trumpeter is preparing a 1/72 Sukhoi Su-24M/MR "Fencer-D/-E" kit - ref.01672 Sources: http://tw.weibo.com/supertomcat21/3751515812535600 http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?showtopic=279455 Source: http://tw.weibo.com/supertomcat21/3748226886916265 V.P.
  2. This is the best Fencer Kit in any scale, but kind of a nightmare to build. That M was disguised as MK in Zhukovsky for a customer display and press day in 1992. I finished that model in 2009. Cheers!
  3. The very first Prototype with fixed wings and 4 lift engines. It is scratch built with parts of Revell and Streem 1:72. More pictures to come if you like. Cheers!

  5. Greetings! My first 'in-progress' thread, after lurking and posting the odd question here and there. I finally bit the bullet and started one of my grail projects, the Trumpeter 1:48 Fencer. I've always admired the look of the Fencer, for it's size it looks like a very graceful aircraft; but loaded up with ordinance it's very purposeful! I'll be adding the Komplekt Zip (KZ) forward fuselage and rear fuselage/burner cans (I'm still debating about the intakes - are they really that much of an improvement?) and the Aires cockpit and wheel wells. First off with the rear end (!). I split the mount for the burner cans as they didn't sit quite parallel to each other; they were canted in slightly: Here's the cans in place: Nozzles weren't glued in place until the last moment as they need to be centered precisely, here the right side is a bit off still: Once the back end is completed, time to chop the kit parts to fit. There are no real instructions with the KZ parts (just photos) so I used Mk.1 eyeball to approximate where to cut. I left myself a few mm extra just in case - which was a good idea. In the end if I would have cut where I thought, there would have been too much difference in the mating surfaces. Much more filling would have been needed. I think the molds were expanding (getting old) causing undersized casts. As it was, I had to build up the edges with strip and add filler strips The bottom was a little better, less filler: The Aires cockpit test fit in the KZ fuse; no issues. I replaced some of the toggle switches that didn't make the casting removal process: Here's the wheel wells in place, no issues once they're cleaned up (thankfully I have a hobby bandsaw and belt sander!): It's going to be a big beast!: Now to paint and finish the cockpit, glue the front end together and start re-scribing lost panel lines! Cheers, Jim

    Different Su-24 Fencer versions?

    Are there any good sites/books that show the differences between all the Su-24 versions (M, M2, MP, MR)? I'm starting the Trumpeter 1:48 beast - I know I shouldn't add the wing fences on top for the M, but I did see a photo captioned as an M which had them, just want to make sure. Wiki doesn't seem to help; sure it mentions them but doesn't really show the differences. Thanks, Jim
