Awesome idea and work so far! Like it mate !
Yes, thats awesome! I think you walked the same path that thousands of engineers go around the world
Looks deadly! Great and successfull work. Looking forward for the decals.
Great combo - funny thing is this actually looks very much like some of the post-Flanker - pre-Felon Russian paper-Stealth-fighters!
Thanks Konrad, Roland, Maciej, Clifford and Slavo. Much appreciated.
@Maciej: I am not sure about additional decals, as in my mind the project is sort of completed.
My goal was to fuse these two aircraft to create some hopefully cool looking fighter and to get some experience with cutting and Milliput.
But maybe you are right, why stop there?
This bird should receive some decals, ordnance (shouldn't leave those pylons empty) and some light weathering.
That's an interesting idea. I'd like to do a kitbash myself, inspired by Arma 3 near-future jets, like the F/A-181 or the To-201, arma3.com/dlc/jets.
This is so cool!
Looks like a T50 nice.
Oooh this is hot hot hot
Yeah, F/A-181 and the To-201 are cool jets. The F/A-181 is a mix of the F-22 and the Super Hornet, while the To-201 looks like a Su-57 with Mig-29 wings.
You should definetly try kitbashing. It can be both frustrating but also a lot of fun.
That's right, I used a Su-57/T-50 kit for this project. The other one was Italeri's F/A-18E.

Put it on top of a piece of plexiglass so it literally looks like hovering
Maybe I'll try that, Sarunas.
The other idea I have is to place it on one of those transparent flyer bases like they are used in Warhammer 40k or I have seen on Dioramas with flying aircraft.
First there needs a lot to be done with this tank. Especially the lower hull.
I need to close the hull where there tracks would have been. Not sure yet how I will approach this.
And a lot more to be filled and sanded.
or you could make it actually hover using a magnet-setup... just saying... I´ve actually seen a 40K Eldar dio with this gimmick somewhere...
Interesting project. Following
Magnets sound really intriguing. Could make for a very cool diorama if done right.
I'll try it.
This will take some research, testing and time.
Thanks for all your interest. I hope I don't dissapoint.
Today I recieved the magnets I ordered some time ago.
They are a bunch of neodymium magnets with different holding force (is that the right term regarding magnets?). I hope they are strong enough for the result I am aiming for.
Still, as long as it hovers I'll count it as a victory.
I think I found the 40K Eldar diorama Slavo was talking about. It used a ring electromagnet. I really like that dio, but for now I don't want to buy an electromagnet as I try to keep the costs low.
Right now I am trying to buy some furniture for my new man cave, to finally get the workbench out of the basement.
Next I need to find the right way to position the magnets on the ground of the future dio and inside the tank. Positioning the magnets in a ring around the tank is probably the best way to avoid it slipping from the magnetic field and keep it hovering in one place.
Also it still looks too much like a Gepard. I feel like the hull needs some more modifications.

Huawei P20 camera is a bit too "harsh" at times. IRL you cant see the white highliting through the paint and the conrtas isnt as sharp as in some pics but enjoy.
When not working on ED-209 I build with my son.
