  1. So almost another month passed an what did I do? 1. I scratch built the PLA Flanker pilot for the diorama and made resin cast copies for sale. 2. I finished checking the PLAAF decal design for the upcoming limited edition kit, and am now waiting for the decal printing for my built utilization. 3. I painted 2 exhaust nozzles. Since many people ask "how to paint Flanker nozzles/engine naccels", I summarized the "how to" by 18 steps. It took me about 1 week to finish 2 nozzles by 1 hour per working day before sleeping + 2 whole weekend days. To be continued...
  2. Those will be included in the PLAAF limited ver. Su-35 kit from GWH very soon.
  3. yes new helmet starts testing in some divisions but ZSh-7 is still the most iconic equipment for Chinese Flanker pilots now, especially in the official propganda. Plus I personnaly do not like the new helmet, looks too western.
  4. Hi buddies Sorry for a little advertisement but just think some of you guys who may be intrested. Fairy Hobby 48002 1/48 China PLA Flanker Pilot is now available for sale.

    G.W.H - 1/72 F-14D TOMCAT

    GWH sample was apparently made by the 3D print parts, which was only to check the propotion. Their Japanese agent Pit Road forgot to mention that on the label.

    GWH Jumping on the 1/48 Tomcat Bandwagon?

    Why only a 1/48 A-10? So lonely. Would be much more interesting with the 1/48 Su-25 Frogfoot in 2019. ;)

    GWH Jumping on the 1/48 Tomcat Bandwagon?

    Why a new Tomcat means NO 1/48 Su-27, Su-27UB, J-11B and J-11BS? They do not contradict each other.

    Two 1/48 Su-34: And the winner is...

    Second to that. Actually in my opinion all canard Flankers are quite ugly, some kinda science fiction-ish look. While the LERX outline on Su-27/Su-35 makes it such an elegant looking aircraft. Well just my opinion though.
  9. I see. i just rechecked the Mr Color chart and found I made the typo. C305 should be FS36118. Will correct that. Sorry for the confusion.
  10. Yeah the ones on Su-35 are just very dark. Check refs man.
  11. PLA camo color are opposite to RusAF, the overall light blue is replaced by light grey. And darkest blue is lighter on PLA than RuAF. Camo pattern is similar but a bit different on wing tips. I have lots of PLA Su-35 photos from my resources but since it's still classifed somehow, I can only post 2 of them with some adds on. Others are from PLAAF official resourse.
  12. No buddy, PLAAF camo is totally different than RuAF. Main color is light grey instead of blue, check the fuselage camo pattern.
  13. Actually I almost finished camo on main parts, but now pending to Chinese font stencils which are under designing. I cannot paint other colors on other details since I need to spray the semi gloss surface once decals attached, to make different surface texture on the fuselage again, like what I did on missiles. So let me save the explanation to next update. To be continued......
  14. Under some aspect you can find the different surface texture on the missiles. Gloss, semi gloss, flat or metalic This shows how good a modeller has spent time to learn and understand the missile in real life. Meanwhile a great fun from modelling as well.
  15. The deadly R-73, no second to AIM-9X even much aged.
