  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.

  4. Hi all! I present to you my latest project, the 1/48 Kitty Hawk Su-35S Flanker-E, "Red 08" in the unique Eggplant Dark Gray scheme of the Russian Air Force, circa 2014. This is really a great kit that has excellent fit almost everywhere, with the wing joins being the notable exception. The kit is not without other issues, however. The exhaust nozzles are molded in the straight position which would only be correct for a powered up machine, not drooped at rest. The stinger tail has flare boxes on the top, which is only correct for the prototypes and early production aircraft. Luckily for me, I wanted to do an early production Eggplant Gray aircraft so the stinger tail is correct OOB for my build. If one wants to do a current in-service aircraft, this would not be correct. Aftermarket used were the AMUR Reaver thrust vectoring nozzle to fix the droop issue, and Begemot Decals. The Begemot Decal sheet includes all the needed stencils for both the aircraft and weapons. The weapons are all OOB, and they are very nice, although I am no expert on the real ones, so I cannot comment on accuracy. But they look pretty accurate to me. I think this kit includes pretty much every Russian missile, bomb, and rocket pod currently in use. This will be a nice addition to my weapons bin ( The KH Fitter was the same way, so I am set with Russian Ordnance for a while!) I used copper wire for the static wicks, some thin scrap parts for the 4 straight probes near the nose cone, and a piece of scrap clear sprue to simulate the interior of the IRST. So, one of the things I really wanted to concentrate on this build was the metalwork. The real aircraft have an amazing array of colors from the heat-stressed titanium, and I am quite pleased with how that turned out. It does look a bit exaggerated in some pics, but in person the look is about perfect. The AMUR Nozzles are quite nice and are easy to remove from casting blocks, clean up, paint, and assemble. Very happy with these. I really enjoyed building this kit, and recommend it to everyone. I know the GWH Su-35 is coming, and I will be getting that one as well to do a blue camo in-service jet. But for someone wanting to do the splinter camo prototype or an early batch Eggplant jet, I would say get this kit. Hope you enjoy! Kit: 1/48 Kitty Hawk Su-35S Flanker-E Decals: Begemot 48-039 Su-35 "New Generation of the Flanker" Aftermarket: A.M.U.R.

  5. After the Su-34 "Fullback", Kitty Hawk is to release a 1/48th Sukhoi Su-35 "Flanker-E" kit - ref. KH80142 Source: http://www.kittyhawkmodel.com/copy-of-kh80141 V.P.
  6. 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
  7. Hi all! So I have been working on the new Kitty Hawk Su-35S and thought I would share my build experience here since I have not seen any others being built elsewhere. I know the GWH Su-35 is coming, but this really looks like a nice kit, and is correct for the version I want to build. I will be getting a GWH Su-35 though, it looks really awesome too, and build a Syrian service jet some day. I plan on doing the Eggplant first production batch, so this kit is correct with the stinger configuration. I am also using the A.M.U.R. Reaver exhaust nozzles, which are fantastic. Also will be using Begemot Decals. So here we go!
  8. while scrolling down on FB i stumble on an info that UAE was to buy Su-35S in interim of a next gen MiG-29 that would be developed jointly by UAE (joining the Russian knowledge with UAE money i guess) i was a bit doubtful, as i tough that UAE was one of USA allies in the M.E. and thus would stay with US hardware... the source might also being questionable, so i did some more search, and it seems that it could be legit info... link bloomberg link defense-blog link National interest what you guys think of this?
