Thanks guys!  I did a little bit more on the intakes last night, I should be able to post pics later today.

I posted a pic of the later version earlier, but as I'm now modelling the early version oob, I thought I'd post some lovely 3D renderings from Jozef Gatial.  The T-4MS could carry four Kh-45 missiles, two internally & two externally, or up to twenty four Kh-15's externally.  These pics shows just how loaded up the T-4MS could be, thanks to it's phenomenal lift to drag ratio.

More gorgeous pics from Jozef on Secret Projects:

I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

You're a very brave man for taking this on Mossie and I have every confidence in your success!

I'm very much looking forward to watching your progress. I've got a B-1 in the stash and I'm sure I'll find no end of inspiration in your work.

Cheers Bri!  More than I have....!

I haven't got on as far as I'd have liked, works been busy & I've been working extra hours & coming home shattered.  I've completed the cockpit & intakes, so I'm pretty much ready to start putting the major parts together.   

Cockpit.  I didn't think there was any point detailing it, you can hardly even see the seats.  All I did was cut some styrene to shape to hide some of the holes from the casting process & paint it pretty roughly.



I've added some ramps to the intakes which, apart from being on the plans, hides some seams & stuff that would have been difficult to sort out.  I wanted to detail them, but I haven't got anything suitable, I might print some decals.  You can see I had to shave the top off the fans & I put the defects to the top, not that you'll see much anyway.  The ramps help hide this too!
