  1. Great Wall Hobby (GWH) is to release a 1/72nd Sukhoi Su-35S "Flanker-E" kit - ref. L7207 Source: https://www.facebook.com/groups/MilitaryModelingSRG/permalink/2441443966071479/ V.P.
  2. I used to model as a child, and now I decided to get back to the hobby. For such I chose the GWH 1/48 Su-35S, I love how the Su-27 aircraft family looks, and Ive seen some awesome reviews of this kit online. To the point, mine arrived a few days ago from China, and as I wait for the rest of the stuff I need for the build to arrive, I figured I would start this topic, and adress some of the first questions that came to my mind regarding the build. Starting by some doubts regarding which joints are and wich joints arent panel lines: The joints that have BLUE lines paralel to them, Im not sure if they are or not panel lines, and Id like your opinion regarding those to make matters clearer to me. The joints that have RED lines paralel to them, Im pretty sure arent panel lines. The joints that have GREEN lines paralel to them, Im pretty sure are panel lines. If you think I made any mistakes on the red and green lines, please let me know. This one I am pretty confident about, but I figured it is great to first illustrate what I mean by the colourful lines. I found some pretty great reference pictures of the front detail of the aircraft, and even though the kits joint line of the upper and lower fuselage matches pretty well with the paint transition line between the belly colour and the top camouflage, there is no panel line there (paralel to the red line that i drawed), and thus that gap will be filled with putty. Here is where matters get tricky for me, I have no ideia if the kit joints paralel to the blue lines are supposed to be panel lines or not. Yufei, on his pretty amazing build (http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/303533-gwh-148-su-35sk-flanker-e-plaaf-6th-brigade/) filled those up with putty. But I cant put my finger on it. If nobody can help me further on this matter, Ill simply trust his steps to be right. You got the ideia, no panel line here, putty it all. This one doesnt follow the same logic as the previous 3 images. Here I believe GWH missed a panel line where I drawed the blue line. Do you guys know if Im correct about this one? Take a look at the reference photo I used to get to my conclusion: In blue is the panel line that I believe GWH missed Credit where credit is due: https://www.flickr.com/photos/100009549@N06/35891338524/in/album-72157685375253980/ Btw, this album is amazing for Su-35S references, check it out! While at it, I also found some misalignments (circled on blue) on the tail boom, the 2 halves of the 2 panels dont go together perfectly. That might be a matter of better sanding the sprue residue on the tail boom (as you can see on the picture, I havent done that yet), but I dont think it is. That seems to be a simple enough fix tho, some fileing should make it right. Lastly, I saw that Gabor on his build (http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/302522-gwh-su-35s-building/) got rid of those 2 small panels, because the version he was building didnt feature those. What version is that? Im building the Red 25, should I be concerned about sanding off those panels? Thanks in advance for your replies, Arthur.
  3. Good Morning, Attached are the first few photos of my next work in progress, this is a bit of kit bash between these two kits and both are being built parallel. 20200105_134423 by J Hooper, on Flickr The fist subject will be a new F-15SA (Saudi Advanced), still being flown by Boeing for flight test and integration purposes. Inspiration for this build can be seen in the link below: https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/21755/f-15sa-bristles-with-a-dozen-aim-120s-missiles-during-star-wars-canyon-run The second subject will be a Israeli Defense Force F-15D, it will be one of the aircraft seen recently at Waddington, but with a different load out: Flickr Image (not mine!) The Great Wall Hobby kit is a Strike Eagle out of the box, where as the Hasegawa kit is really an F-15D with some extra parts thrown in. The Hasegawa kit is still, good, but it shows it's lineage, and there are still some steps that need to be taken to make it an accurate Strike Eagle. For that reason I will take advantage of the kit's individual qualities, to make the best out of both.

  5. Well, I was admiring Aigore's natty WIP of his 9.13 and wondering where he got the little placards and whatnot for the ejection seat, etc. I love these neat little touches, and they looked thinner and nicer than the usual printed etched bits... Sure enough, if you turn up the GWH instruction sheets on HobbySearch, they are mentioned on the cockpit page. Also, if you have a 9.12 (Early) as I do, be assured the same decals are there along with the instrument panel ones, despite them not being featured in the instructions. The thing is, there are more similar looking placardy-thing decals that (unless I've finally gone completely blind) don't appear to have a home in either set of instructions: item #s B94 thru B98. The last one is a sexy looking thing that reminds me of the 'Hornet' nameplate that sits on the rear deck of F/A-18s (#21 in the Eduard 1/48 Placard Set) -do Fulcrums have something similar, or is it all a figment? I'd be very pleased if anyone has a level of Fulcrum intimacy that covers the location of these items -please feel free to challenge my ignorance. TIA!
