Su 34 cockpit curtains

Recommended Posts

Has anyone got an image or information on how the window blinds in front of the instrument panel are stowed?

Thanks, somebody PMed me the same images. It looks like they tuck under a fairing that isn't on the kit. I'll bodge it.

 

I Googled it beforehand, but most of the results showed models, with all sorts of variations and interpretations!

I took this pic at a MAKS airshow....

It looks like the front semi-circular front curtain rests on top of the front coaming.

 

It looks a bit sloppy - so I suspect it folds away to be hidden somewhere (?)

 

Here it is deployed (Up)......

This would be great to do if one didn't feel like painting and detailing the cockpit. Just make up a facsimile of the curtains and covers and then call it a day :whistle:

Instead of being plain, they would look nicer in a Laura Ashley floral fabric as recommended by Lawrence Llewellyn-Bowen 😉
