Su-26 build

Before I get things setup in wings, Taz I've got a couple questions.

1) Does your model have the same cutout that Maj. has shown in the other thread for the exhaust?

2) Can you post a link here of specs?

3) Are there any hatches in the fuselage, and if so, what is beneath them? Im not saying I'm going to do internals, but if I do, Id like to know what is inside. Also, pics of said internals would be helpful from many different angles. No hurry on them as it will be a while before that will be gotten to.

Ill try to get things setup and started sometime this week as time allows.

I got the basic specs (less owner modifications) from:
http://www.hangar-9.com/Products/Def...ProdID=HAN1060

That also has a pretty good photo gallery of external shots. The downloadable manual is also a good source for internals.

I'm making a new scale engine model of a DA-170. I'll post a copy here when done and you can use it.

I am much looking forward to this. I had the V1 H9 85cc Sukhoi. If the DA 85 hadn't of been such a DOG I would still be flying it.

Three views are setup, but time ran out to start the modeling. If I don't hear from Taz about the cutouts, I'll go ahead and model them.

Hope they're worth the effort. 3 sets, 20 minutes. I'm probably going about it all wrong, but I like the end result so far.

Hi there, again let me thank you for your amazing efforts fellas. This is really cool to have my plane down for RF.

1. I do not use headers & canisters like the photos. The openings are there on my plane, but I run stock mufflers. I am okay with you guys using what you have already started with, I do not want anyone doing anything more than needed. Besides, cans are cool!

2. http://www.hangar-9.com/Products/Def...ProdID=HAN1060

3. The only removable or opening hatch is the canopy. Nothing else.

What is the name of the font? I used to do graphic design, website design & corp identity logos years ago. I have a disc with literally 50,000+ fonts. If you can get me the name, I'll see if I have it.

Thanks Taz. I didn't know Doug was modeling a motor before asking, so I'll go with whatever he comes up with.

I've started work on the motor. I plan on doing things a little different this time around. I'm going to do a parallel build with both low and high detail components. That way depending on how visible the motor is in the plane and what your poly budget is, you can pick which to use.
