  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. And she's finished! If you haven't already, you can check the in-progress thread here: You can access the full gallery and article at my blog: https://vvsmodelling.com/2017/12/07/sukhoi-su-17m3-fitter-h/
  4. Hi everyone! Here's my new project I wanna share with you, the Sukhoi Su-17M3. But hold on, it's not the infamous Kitty Hawk Fitter and neither is the new HobbyBoss one. We're talking about a Modelsvit one in 1:72 scale. And from what I've seen so far, it is by far the best Fitter in this scale... and quite possibly in any. You might have seen the K-36 seat already from Ken's beautiful M-17 build, but here it is again. Ejection seat consists of, believe it or not, 23 parts! What you see here is 22 parts as I left of the commendably thin ejection seat lever to add at the end. All in all a model inside a model I could say and the level of detail is just great. The only problem are instructions as they are not very clear with the location of some of the tinier parts. Nicely molded exhaust turbine The exhaust pipe is of correct length and made out of 3 parts. It is a bit tricky to assemble, but for some time lost during the assembly, you get some really nice interior details and the dreadful seam lines that usually plague the exhaust halves, won't be seen here. Cockpit and front wheel well details is awesome as well - larger companies should be learning from a small short-run company like Modelsvit. I've bypassed the instructions a bit here - instead of building the cockpit/front wheel well assembly first and then gluing everything into the fuselage halves, I found it easier to just glue the cockpit halves into each respective fuselage half and build on from there. And guess what, the fit is perfect! Just look at the back wall details. Much better than with KittyHawk kit in larger scale. You get two different instrument panels - one with flat surface if you choose decal and one with all the little details if you fancy painting all the little details. I guess I'll go with the later option and if I fail miserably, I still have a back up :)
  5. There is HB model (actually chinese J- 11B, that almost the same) done as 968 IIAP CO mount in the middle of 90th of the past century. There are some add-ons: lovres and meshes set and nozzles from A.M.U.R. Reaver, Brassin Missiles and rails from Eduard. I corrected the wheel wells shape and made new engine intakes. Some other minor improvements was made here and there. More photos here on Flickr!
  6. The first finished model of 2017. HobbyBoss kit in 1:72ish scale (closer to 1:60 I guess) and Begemot decals. Several changes had to be made in order to bring the kit, built to represent the first two prototypes, to the rebuilt 5th flying prototype.

  7. Hi everyone. A lot has been happening in my life in the last 4 months - details can be found in the article ;) Anyhow, my new project is the refurbished 5th prototype of the infamous Sukhoi T-50 PAK-FA. Here's a link to the first part of the article: https://vvsmodelling.com/2017/04/10/sukhoi-t-50-5r-part-1/
  8. Here's my entry for this GB. It is the recently released HobbyBoss rendition of the Su-27 Flanker. I will be adding a resin seat and using decals from Begemot. The kit seat is rather lacking in detail so I'll be using a resin replacement. And progress so far involves the construction of several sub-assemblies. Mark
  9. Hi everyone! I have this little shelf queen that for no apparent reason became one at the beginning of the year. I wanted to build Su-30M2, but upon just closing the fuselage halves, seeing all the Trump's mistakes, I lost all the mojo. I am resurrecting her now for this GB. In the past few days, I've attached the intakes, the nose, started puttying, sanding and rescribing lost details. The work I hate the most. Oh and I've started working on cockpit. And this little man, which will look much better after he'll receive some flat coating. The figure comes from a Zvezda kit but is quite big for the Trumpeter's K-36 seat. So his legs had to be amputated and the bottom of the ejection seat removed, so the height of the pilot will be correct in the cockpit.
  10. Hi everyone! Just finished this Su-30M2 for 'Build a Bear' Group build here at ARC. Click on the below link to access full article and photo gallery: https://vvsmodelling.com/2016/11/13/su-30m2-flanker-g-4th-prototype/
