    SU-35 BM weapons help needed

    can you guys check that my assumptions as to what kind of weapons these are, are correct? Su-35BM - weapons by Chrysostomos Deliyiannis, on Flickr Su-35BM_weapons 2 by Chrysostomos Deliyiannis, on Flickr

    SU-35 BM weapons help needed

    Hi Andrea, I am using Kittyhawk's model which has the correct for the early configuration stinger. Or at least I believe so πŸ™‚ Kittyhawk provide the late type of stinger in resin, so I won't be using the resin part.

    SU-35 BM weapons help needed

    I can't thank you enough Berkut. I will post some pictures of the progress when i go home. I am not planning to put two Kh-59 but only one on the right side and most probably a KAB 1500 kl on the other side. as for the rest of the weapons, I am going to use Eduard's weapon set which has some nice R-27's, R-77, R-60 and R-73 of course, If you have any pictures of the "902", I would very much appreciate to have them.

    SU-35 BM weapons help needed

    Hello guys, I am building the Kittyhawk SU-35 in the following version: SU-35 BM "902". I am now at the weapons stage (still before painting the camo though) and I am struggling a bit with the weapons and how these are attached to the launchers and the pylons (if I assume that the pylon is the one attached to the plane, and the launcher is the one attached in-between the weapon and the pylon). to make things more clear, I am planning to attach a KH-59 M(E) as seen in the picture. This was "stolen" from the SU-34 Kittyhawk kit. My problem however is how to attach this weapon to the plane, which pylon and which launcher. I found that the SU-34 kit provides a launcher (AKU-58) similar to the one shown in the picture (however when trying to attach it to the weapon it does not sit parallel). if I want to attach the KH-59 under the wing (close to the intakes) as in the picture attached, which pylon should I use?

    another piece of information coming from Kittyhawk you guys might want to know is about the new Engine Removal and Installation Trailer. this has been advertised on Kittyhawk's facebook page. 36339960_2113527292239218_2529697293091733504_o by Chrysostomos Deliyiannis, on Flickr 36357108_2113527332239214_1176503890128928768_o by Chrysostomos Deliyiannis, on Flickr 36320645_2113527385572542_2416770353633165312_o by Chrysostomos Deliyiannis, on Flickr 36318547_2113527185572562_824312955494465536_o by Chrysostomos Deliyiannis, on Flickr 36323011_2113527195572561_42002808764891136_o by Chrysostomos Deliyiannis, on Flickr the estimated price for this will be around 80-90USD. (according to Kittyhawk, reply given to me by email) due to low production quantities which makes the cost higher.

    that is a great build threat. I am following this with so much interest. I really like the way you find solutions in building this helicopter.

    SU-35 BORT 902 - help needed

    Hi Guys, I am advancing in building my 1/48 Kittyhawk SU-35 which I am planning to make as the SU-35S bort number 902 with the nice splinter camo. I am trying to find as many photo references as possible though but I found my self only with a handful of them. I studied the instructions kittyhawk provide with the kit for the painting and I can see some issues there. I am not talking about the colours as these I think are not the correct ones, but it is generally about the scheme. I see for example that the Nose colour on the real plane has a different pattern than kittyhawk, etc etc. I search all over the net and I could only find a few pictures, and in case you have some more that would be very much appreciated. see below some of my progress on the exhausts. I had to cut the tubes provided with the kit in order to give the correct angle for the resin nozzles Kittyhawk provides as otherwise, there is a huge step inside the exhaust tube. 7_04_09_813 by Chrysostomos Deliyiannis, on Flickr 10454358t3 by Chrysostomos Deliyiannis, on Flickr 20180206_211939 by Chrysostomos Deliyiannis, on Flickr 20180206_211948 by Chrysostomos Deliyiannis, on Flickr Not yet finished but this is the first step in painting the exhausts 20180212_125922 by Chrysostomos Deliyiannis, on Flickr 20180212_125933 by Chrysostomos Deliyiannis, on Flickr
