  1. My 2nd work of 2020 is this little gem. Hope everyone's safe staying at home to build your kits! Kit: Zvezda 1/48 4821 Accessories: Micro Design photo etching part Advanced Modelling 1/48 KAB-500L bombs Advanced Modelling 1/48 KAB-500Kr bombs Master 1/72 F-14A pitot tube(early style) Master 1/48 Sukhoi type static dischargers A very well researched and designed kit by Zvezda. Fitting is also fantastic. But the surface is a bit too simple, only with some raised rivets and recessed panel lines a bit too wide. I also made a video by my crappy iPhone and you can watch it if interested: Yak-130 Light Ground-attack Aircraft Diorama Yakovlev Design Bureau Vintage Scheme Demo Scheme Thanks for watching and stay safe! Yufei
  2. Some work in progress pictures recorded by my cell phone, if you are interested. Thanks for looking.
  3. First finished work in Rat Year, during past several weeks at home because of the coronusvirus which prohibited going out and extension of Lunar New Year holidays in China. In Chinese culture, red means celebration so I hope the special moment could be settled down ASAP. Kit: Airifx: front fuselage+windshield+canopy, Italeri: other parts. Aftermarket: Master 1/48 metal pitot tube Reedoak 3D scan 1/48 camera man
  4. This is my recipe for my F-16CJ: Quickboost F-16 resin seat Master metal pitot tube+AOA Master metal F-16 discharger Reskit resin tires KA Model 3D print nozzle Eduard pre-cut masking Above items will enhance your F-16 most significantly but not ruin the joy of building, or even increase the pleasure to enjou the kit more. Resin gear bay etc. is not really necessary, since you don't have much chance to look at them vs the time & effort you invest to install them. Just my 2 cents.
  5. Since L4823 decal vendor has been changed to the China mainland best manufacturer. Su-35 kit decal is excellent, both design(with help from Gabor assures it most accurate even compared with other 3rd party brands) and printing(accurate color and no set off), just a bit thick. Kit decal reacts perfectly with Gunze mark softer the blue cap one. If it is terrible then I have to call Cartograf decal as bad as well.
  6. A collaboration work by Mr. Kenji Yanai (Japan) and Yufei Mao (China) Kit: Kinetic Kinetic KNE48086 Aftermarket accessories: KA Models 3D print GE F110 engine nozzle Master metal pitot tube + AoA Master metal F-16 static dischargers Reskit resin F-16A wheels AIM-9M, AIM-120A:GWH 1/48 F-15 kit GBU-12, Mk 82:AMK 1/48 US weapon set 370 galon fuel tank:Tamiya 1/48 F-16 kit Pylons:Kinetic 1/48 F/A-18C kit Pilots:Tamiya 1/48 F-14A kit(heads)+Tamiya 1/48 F-16 kit(bodies, etc.)
  7. 1. Your name is not printed on an awful kit instruction or box. 2. My name does not appear either, neither do others. 3. The reason I have explained already, and you can see Trumpeter never print any one name on their kit. 4. But you keep on calling me “lying” “theft practice”. After all what I stole from you? What did I lie to you? You really want your name on that stupid kit? I definitely do not want. Then what do you want now after 14 years? Does you “disclaim” make any sense or it’s just some kind of venting self anger behavior like a teenager? After all you are still “helping” the “lying” “theft practice” Chinese again with some 1/48 new kit right?I also have ID on scale model.ru forum. Such ironic and unprincipled teenager behavior.
  8. Interesting. Why I do not want to remember this? Give me a good reason. and what’s selling Su-27 glazing story? why I need those parts? It is not I don’t want to remember, but it’s you who want to convince yourself to “remember”. Now you find some new good partners in China so hope your “contribution” will be fully awarded unlike the Trumpeter case 14 years ago which is totally not my fault either. Good luck.
  9. 1. The Su-24 and MiG-25 photos were forwarded by Sergey to me, so I have no idea who is the author and it happened 14 years ago back to 2006. 2. You should blame Trumpeter who made Su-24 kit without mentioning your name, instead of blaming me who asked them to give the helpers credit. And just to tell you the truth I BOUGHT one Tu-22 kit and send to a Canadian friend who gave his correction opinion but none was corrected by trumpter, paying all postage by myself. Apparently that's the final relationship I was with Trumpeter, and yes it's also 14 years ago back to 2006. I believe I have never talked you or mail communication in personal, neither do you know the real fact and background during those kit R&D, so the result is obvious: you even don't know whom should be the correct one to blame. I'm no less dissapointed for the final result of Su-24 than any of you, so don't only treat yourself as the only victim. You have no idea how much time and effort I input on that stupid project, which none of it has been implemented. Yeah Tumpeter and Kitthawk kits do suck, every modeler understand that. If you are aware that Kittyhawk is actually invested by former Trumpter staff(even some is still working in Trumpeter), you can easily imagine that why both brands are so similar in style. My explanation is finished and hope gives you some sense on target selection.

  11. Pointy canopy Too flat dorsal Wrong intake underline curve Wrong angled/too long nose landing gear Fictional panel lines, rivets and other details. Balabala I personally categorize HASEGAWA Su-35 to a “science fiction” kit. Of course you don’t need to discard it because it surely does not look like an F-15 Eagle.
  12. 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
