Title: Sukhoy S-141 Berputr 1/144 (finished page 2)
Post by: Tophe on September 29, 2019, 04:10:52 am
   I received from my model kit main provider a mail saying “it is a long time we haven’t heard of you, to invite you visiting our site again please accept this discount personal offer”… this was not much but more than a first-price kit, so I went there (to get a kit for free?!). Among the cheapest ones was a F-117 1/144 Trumpeter kit, and my son dreams for months of building this (but like Real, not transforming…), so I ordered it, and for myself, I added a Sukhoy S-47 Berkut (also 1/144 Trumpeter and very cheap and available).
   So let me play imagining what I will do with this basis:

(delivery is scheduled for October 03rd, and this refers to 2019 I hope not 2020 nor 3019…).
   The new name Berputr is related to the French word “poutre” (pronounced as the English putr), twin-boom being “bipoutre”.

cheap and available).
(delivery is scheduled for October 03rd
Last week I received a mail saying the availability was wrong on the site and they must get some physically again. :-\
Yesterday I received a mail saying the order has been now sent to me. <_<
So delivery may be soon now. ;D

I got the kit today. That is the first Trumpeter kit I am going to build, made in China and looking good.

Among the cheapest ones was a F-117 1/144 Trumpeter kit, and my son dreams for months of building this (but like Real, not transforming…), so I ordered it,
My son finished building his one (ready for black paint):
(https://img.photobucket.com/albums/v670/Tophe2712/IMG_3381_f117_zps4yrdpxym.jpg)
He wanted to make it like Real (his criterion of Quality, poor boy...), but I may smile, seeing one fin vertical and the other oblique (but shht, don't tell him) ;)

Turning the booms 90 degrees may be even better:

Thanks! <_<

Uh... by "both", did you mean
either my son's F-117 and my Berputr? (F-117Z below with mirror copy)
or the two versions of Berputr? (decided now, see below the next step)

The last part has been glued on, then painting the underside (ugly side to be hidden soon):

I think this is the very first twin-boom (or triplex-boom) asymmetric supersonic fighter, ever! <_<

Thanks!
In the same family was the S-282 Dvuk-Berputr (2 seats, 2 noses, 4 jets), but I did not build it, I just got a picture:

That's awesome, Tophe!!! Came out very nice!  I dig it...  It reminds me of a ninja star or something.

Thanks for your approval of my (gentle) madness... ;D
I would be willing to draw ninja-star aircraft (maybe more on a P-38 basis) but my Corel Draw software is in a complete jam, impossible to use :-\ , Corel Support Team is working on it. :unsure:

In the same way, quicky done with MS Paint rather than Corel PhotoPaint in jam now, here is the S-283, also twin-nose 4-jet two-seater but with forward swept wing and fuselages close to one another:

After my Corel Draw is temporarily cured, I am able to draw the "true" Ninja Star Lightnings (thanks Chronic1):

Adding the painted version now is not much what-if but mirror copies make F-117Z, better than Real maybe... ;D
