Ok,so now I have measured area on fuselage,in section where is joint when canopy is closed on Su-35,and it is 21,25mm.Which is 1020mm in 1/1.SO it means that I little bit pressed harder plexi material when I have measured canopy,so correct measure is logicly 21,25 of GWH Su-35 1/48.So, Delide,you were right.Something is strange going on here.It appears that on each side the lowest area of canopy is wider exact 0.78mm from each side.Which in full scale is around 10% than it should be.Now how the f... to fix that???In my first measuring,which was wrong,the error was 0,35mm,but...after repeated method,but inverted,on area where is joint,and surface is harder,I got now correct values.The only way how to fix it, is next: I need to buy  new SU-27 single seater,and then cut the area around fuselage,and then transplant that part on Su-35 and use canopy of SU-27.The only solution.And what is left of parts to throw to trash because it is unusable.Or to beg GWH to send me just upper fuselage of single seater and canopy for my surgical procedure...But I doubt that they will do it.

Yes, I only took rough measurements, it already tells me that should be around 10% difference to the Kinetic's V1.0, so I didn't check further. Wondering about the truth, I tried to find more photos of the Su-27/35,  they pointed me more and more toward Kinetic actually. Now that the new data from GWH confirmed that Kinetic is indeed more correct(for a Su-27/Su-35 that is, maybe the design team used data/drawings of the Su-27 to design the V1.0 kit?). I guess finally I know the truth now. Personally I would just live with it, as the canopy of SU-35 kit looks quite OK from the side, and if you build the kit with canopy closed, then it's only about 5% too wide, so only half as noticeable. But I can understand if that would be difficult for you.   

 

Yes, it's going to be difficult to fix, as always with canopies. Their new Su-27 could provide a solution, but the windshield of the Su-35 is too wide too(it has to match the canopy after all), and you can not use the one of Su-27. But think positively, their at least measured the real thing and corrected it on their Su-27 kits for us, so we will have the perfect Su-27 at least(Until we do more comparisons... X-P just kidding, I do not expect any sufficient issue).

no no no,it was just ruff point of view,I am not  alowed to show real photo...

OK OK, that sounds much better, but still I thought you guys were able to measured the real things. I don't know how to take exact measurement from photos and there is not that many photos of the Su-33 I can find, so I can not tell. I will see the test build someday.

M. Belov, you can update the thread/discussion title !

Don't speak about Aviation Art anymore as the name of the new manufacturer is: Minibase (for Minibase Hobby Corporation?). The company logo design is reported still to be finalized.

The kit release is now expected before Christmas 2020. Hope is what makes us live.
