1/200 Su-24 Fencer -- design

its been a long time since i last tried my hand at designing, but i feel like ive learned a lot just from building more models and i figured id give it another shot

After only 2 days of working on it, its started to take shape so i figured id share the current status of the first prototype (please emphasizs prototype, the finished model will be a lot neater, digital, and have full color and panel lines--this is essentially just making sure the parts fit).
Taking from brunos 1/100 f-14, i got the wings to have adjudtable sweep. I will also redesign the aftmost portion of the fuselage as i am not happy with how it came out. I also still need to design the canopy, which will give the top of the plane a much less 'flat' feel, and smaller details like the landing gear and fuel tanks. As for adding panel lines to curved surfaces, im truthfully not very experienced at all in that regard, so i am open to any help in that area of expertise however, i will do my best to get the model satisfactorily completed regardless!
I do intend to make it free for download as well

That's a great first draft!

Thanks Carlos!

Yesterday I worked on correcting the rear of the fuselage and I built a second prototype, adding a canopy to both (that will need some revisioning imo). It's honestly not that different from the first prototype as it comes from mostly the same measurements; I will probably show both prototypes once I get the landing gear and aerials all sorted out. Today, however, I got a little sidetracked and went ahead and digitalized a good bit of the design, including all of the different versions' tails according to the Yefim Gordon book

I will test build these parts tomorrow, but I figured I'd post just to indicate the direction of the project (although two pieces still lack panel lines):
