  1. Hi Ken Thanks for your input. Let me answer your questions. >It looks like the IRST ball is solid (?) - OK if you want to paint it red to depict the cover - but no clear lens? Well to be honest I forgot to tell CAD team to make that a single part during scaling down from 48 scale, since their objection is quite simple: combine parts as many as possible to keep assembling easy and not too much detail lost. A lesson needs to be learn for them. >The translating ring between the rear angled nozzle and fixed front part looks too recessed - the real thing is quite smooth...... Actually that's not the recess but the gap between the ring and nozzles parts(they are seperated), because the nozzles are rotatable, same as 48 scale part break down. I think that may add some fun to the kit, or serious solid guys may change them with high detail resin parts... >The intakes on the leading edge of the fin root look to be the same size - the port side should be approx twice the size of the starboard one... No worry, those small intakes differ from each other, an obvious feature you cannot miss from Flanker family. They are different on left part and right part as well. >GWH supply two types of lower intake shutters - open or closed (as they would be with the engine off) - although I can't prove it right now - but I think there should be 12 slats/louvres - not what I count as 11 in the kit.?? Su-27 has 12 shutters but Su-35 only has 11, haha! >And no seam line down the canopy/winscreen !!!! Actually there is, but thanks to precision mold level, they are not so obvious. Cheers, Yufei
  2. All parts glued. No more cutting to fit, a quite pleasant built only using Tamiya extra thin glue.
  3. Attach clearer and more pictures FYI. Parts break down has been enhanced to futher enhance smooth assembling.
  4. It's made by PE from the Reskit resin wheels set. Sh*tty Hawk Most of small parts have been replaced by GWH Su-35 parts, and other by resin aftermarket goods. Only fuselage, wings, windshield, stabilizers etc. are from original kit parts.

Very pooly researched/designed kit, most panel lines/rivets are fictional and cannot be found in Begmot decal instruction sheet. Main dish is the weapon ordance, aircraft is just appetizer so I did not spend too much time on it.
  6. Hello Haneto.  I just got a post on a thread I started today (Saturday, November 16, 2019) that discussed the single seat F-15C canopy that you have been making.  I used the link that had been posted, and searched for 'Fairy Hobby 48008' on eBay, without success.  Are you still making these canopies, or are they still available?  I would be interested in 1 or 2 for the Great Wall Hobby 15Cs that I have.  Thanks.  My e-mail address is cabasner@earthlink.net.  Regards, Curt Basner.

      Hello unfortunately they are all sold out and no plan for re-release since my vendor does not want to make more copies due to extremely high cost and difficulty.

      Sorry about that.

      Understood.  Thanks for the reply.

  7. From design perspective, the panel lines/rivets are generally added to CAD texture surface as a single layer. So may be due to some certain reason the rivet layer was forgotten to be added into the mold making process which is generally done by CNC machines. Pls correct me if my knowledge is wrong as an amateur.
  8. Obvious or not, judge by yourself.
  9. Yep, there is one under development.
  10. Why you believe I know more? I'm just a friend of GWH boss, not an employee.
  11. Sorry I have no idea since GWH's western aircraft items are out of my design scope. But I personally do not think it's a good idea to participate in the competition especially other maker's new product is just for sale. Maybe 1-2 years later? who knows. Let's wait for the announcement in All Japan Model and Hobby Show in Tokyo end of this month.
  12. Hi Madcop As you know Su-35 does not have too much painting schemes so far, Russian eggplant, Russian tricolor camo or PLAAF tricolor camo. So the sales quantity cannot be compared with Tomcat or vanilla Flanker which has more panting choices. Although I heard GWH has already achieved breakeven point even in the very first release L4820, still needs to expand sales to generate more profit so that more new items could be made. One of the sales expanding method is to invest on new weapon tools to attract more users, even repeaters. So to be honest there is no plan to sell the weapon sprues seperately since it does not help maker to increase kit sales. Maybe sometime later, when they have more variants of Russian weapons, they could be packaged as weapon set seperately, as a formal product. Thanks for your understanding (on behalf of the boss, though it's totally none of my business since I don't get any incentive, a single penny from the sales or design ;) ) Yufei
  13. Here is the payload configuration for the kit: Instruction sheet cover, with Gabor and my name on it :) Kit content: Painting schemes: "Red 03" and "Red 10" converted to late type(chaff dispensers on the bottom side of tailboom) They are quite weathered so weathering guys shall be happy to choose these eggplant schemes. "Blue 25" with typical late type tricolour camo: Shall be on shelf in October (later September in China domestic market). Yufei
