I wasn't there
second prototype is at LII, too, but it's non-flightworthy KNS testbed
you must not thank me for the photos as I did not take it, that was clearly stated

No, you posted it here and brought it to my attention; That's what you're being thanked for. If the photographer wishes to show up here, I'll think him as well. ;)

hmmm... flat nozzle on PAK-FA

just some speculative half baked render

Is this made by you ,or you found it somehwere? Would be very interesting to see the end result ,with the levcons ,wings  and fins attached and offcourse the flat nozzles... :P

they are actually larger than it seems...
weather was not quite good this day, so high ISOs and murky shots even with Aleksey's Canon EF 500mm f/4.0 L IS USM
moreover, T-50 photos still remains hot-sellers, so don't forget of commercial side

but this is not last flight...

yes, that's why I mentioned half-baked :P

I did however make some modifications in the rear structure to accommodate flat nozzles and integrate the shape to make it more logical looking(speculatively speaking)

(it's not that easy to work on a model 3 hours a week ya know, currently rigging it btw)

OMG,  :o  B).
The first 90 seconds are the best part, where you see close-up details of the aircraft.
TVC, flaps, gear doors and main gear housing...

That IS a gorgeous plane! Thanks for sharing, finally we know where those still images that first showed the top side paint pattern came from.
