We present the preliminary results from simultaneous modeling of wideband and Stromgren light curves of RY Sct, using a code that accounts for effects from an accretion disk present in a binary system. In our model, RY Sct must be a high-inclination system with one component hidden in an optically thick accretion disk. For comparison also a nondisk solution for the same data set is presented.
