Dear Raptor 71,

Where exactly did I say YELLOW?  And what is yellow?  Please look again at the post on page 22 from Jan 20th.

 

The above photos show the tinted canopy sprue. It is tinted.

 

Best regards

Gabor

Hi Gabor. Only a language and translation problem. I perfectly understand that the transparent cockpit (very nice) is deliberately dyed (to simulate the reproduction of the "yellow" layer that on the SU-35 serves to prevent the opponent's radar waves, penetrate the cockpit and reflect on the ejection seat). I forgot the smile that would make me understand the joke for the term "yellow" (reference to "yellow" of the band Coldplay or the Beatles "yellow submarine".. That's all.  :thumbsup:

I bit the bullet and purchased from Hobby Easy as it is the lowest price I could find online.

I think enough has been shown of the new 48th scale GWH Su-35S  kit in the past months. Now it is time to add few drops of paint and do the second test build, this time here in Europe.

It is here:

Check the delivery dates closely on the eBay listings.  They look like pre orders to me with delivery estimated in the second half of February.

I didn't order one from the eBay seller, I think they are in stock based on the posted images. I think those dates are standard for international shipping. Normally sellers will put pre-order in their listing.

I just got the Kit today.  It came with a huge thick box.  Just make sure no delicate parts are broken.  Mine has part 43 broken (some longish piping for the front wheel wells) into two, other parts are fine.

 

Oh, I also got the "tinted" canopy, which appears to me tinted too light in color.

You bought it from a shop or it's a sample (I'm asking to know if the kit is in full production) ? How big is the box (length+width+height < 90cm for Small Packet airmail) ?

Hi Laurent,

 

I bought it from TaoBao and it is my first time buying a kit from there.  However, I think the safest option is with HobbyEasy or LuckyModel, which also has the lowest price.

 

The box dimensions are W x L x H = 33cm x 46cm x 11cm

 

It is just the sprues of the intake trunk, exhaust, gear bay pipes all pack together in the same bag that may cause some damage during shipment.  And the box has left over spaces.

 

Here are some photos of the kit:

I just hope GWH will release a 1:48 su-27 which has more possibilities in weathering, camoflague and decal options.

I thought they said they were going to set a new standard and 1/48 scale modeling? A standard of good or bad?

Those lines looks really dissapointing.

Gabor, can you take some photos of the same areas? Something seems odd about this. Like it is test shot quality or perhaps some bad shots made it into the hands of some who are jumping on a some easy money.

Jeffrey, thanks for posting those pics. That's the reason why I generally do not do pre-orders and I prefer to wait until the plastic is out to the public before spending my valuable money. If that's the norm, I'm probably gonna pass on this kit. Hopefully, it's not the norm and you just got some bad QC.

 Hope is not lost kid's! GWH has retooled and corrected mistakes on previous kits, like the MiG-29 and the F-15. They really have to shake up their quality control team. I'm curious to see what they will say about this, and I'm sure they will do what they can to fix it. This should never have happened!
