The final effect of the whole cockpit.

Totally out of box.

Yes with some patience you can get that too!

I used Galaxy Model pre-cut masking sheet.

I strongly recommend you which is a must have for the build!

With the masking sheet's help I could even paint the light grey sealing material between the glass and black frames.

 

This kit is designed to have your canopy to be swithed bewteen open and close at any time you want, to enjoy both beautiful profile of the Flanker and cockpit details.

Looking good! I just finished my 1st GW su-35  few days ago and it was a wonderful kit to build. Hopefully I can get some pictures posted up in the display case section soon.

Thank you all for your encouragements guys!

And sorry for keeping silent for a while due to a super busy May (3 weeks on biz trips!).

 

So finally I finished painting job for all landing gear relevant parts.

Yes again, I took kit parts breakdown advantage to paint/weather the parts BEFORE gluing to make the final effect as neat as I can.

And again these are the colour charts for details I made, all based on my research on real life photos.

All by GSI Creos Mr Color lacquer paint.

Nose gear bay.

Do NOT fill the center line since it is there in real life.

Just add some rivets and it will looks fine.

Main gear bays.

Some parts are not mounted because I want to make masking easier for painting the fuselage.

Will install them once fuselage camo is finished.

Generally Flanker is not a tail sitter but I still added one 10g metal weight just to avoid any suprise in case.

Nose gear.

 

By the way all wheels are not glued to landing gear.

I will glue the wheels in last minute after landing gears are installed, to assure all weighted tires stand on the same flat surface.

Thank you all for the nice comments!

Some new updates but still very slow (busy daily work and family service!).

 

So I finished painting intakes and trunks.

Nothing special, just pay attention to the small holes decal position.

Also some addtional work.

Add one wire on left main gear door (yes it's only on left gear door).

Also piping the alcohol storage bottle.

There is some slight shrinkage on fron gear door so I chose to flatten them by some putty.

Now finally I can glue the upper and lower fuselage parts.

Fitting is quite good so only very slight sanding work is necessary.

Some panels and rivets are soft on the front half of upper fuselage so I rescribed/drilled them.

It seems that PLAAF obmit the ECM antennas on LERX so I filled the original panel lines and rivets by putty.

I'm quite pleasant with the fitting and thanks to brilliant part break down there was almost no stress to fit them together.
