Thanks for the photo! Awesome. I probably won't weather mine, even though the actual plane is well worn. I like my flankers new and shiny. 🙂And also because the older I get, the lazier I get and can't be bothered to do the extra work lol. 

 

Can anyone recommend an AKAN lacquer set that matches the camo for 64? 

 

Thanks....!

I got two kits, the one I got from Sprue Brothers today is fine, the one I got from Lucky Model has the same problem as described by Helmsman above.

 

Easy fix, I don't know.

Preordered mine from AMMO MIG (Spain) in October and received it today. First check went to the armement and to my relief, everything is O.K.

Preordered from MIG too. Package was sent 18th even tho I requested them to send it in January. Tracking is not working at all. I'm away from home until 3rd January and afraid the package will be returned or go missing if my neighbour pick it up...

Depends where you're living. Mine was also sent on the 18th of december and I was informed on the 28th through PostNL tracking system that my parcel would be delivered the 29th between midday and 4.30pm. Can't you still choose a "Pick-up" point instead of your address ?  Hope you can get in touch with the Agency who should deliver your parcel....

Good luck.

Hi All,

Just  thought I'd jump in here to add my $0.02.  I got my GWH SU-27UB from SprueBrothers in early November, and decided, based on the discussion here on curved missiles, to verify mine.  All of the weapons in my kit are perfectly straight.  

I've read with interest this lengthy thread, and certainly a lot of opinions presented here.  I'm not certain yet whether I"m sold on the multi-part exhaust of this kit, and in fact, if there are ever parts of any jet airplane model that I am inclined to want to replace with aftermarket resin pieces, they are generally the ejection seats, and the exhaust nozzles/afterburner parts.  It will be interesting to see what aftermarket companies do with the exhaust for this kit.  As far as I can tell, no such dedicated aftermarket exhausts have yet been made available (if anyone knows different, please provide some info), but I'll be looking forward to seeing if such aftermarket items can/will improve on the detail of the kit parts.

I've investigated PostNL website and the package has been delivered yesterday... I assume my neighbour from the downstairs picked it up and left it in the staircase. Unfortunately I'll be back in whole 4 days.

Hi Curt B,

 

If you dont like the seat and the exhaust please feel free to blame me. After all the seat was in all respects my work while for the exhaust I added details and an idea. How it turned out in the end in plastic form is . . . Still think that given the constraints of injection moulding we tried our best to give as good and authentic parts as possible for both of these areas.

 

I think a Russian resin maker has exhaust cans for the Su-27. Does it fit the G.W.H kit? I have no idea.

 

For the ejection seat this is the early K-36DM Seria 2 version of the seat. For the G.W.H kit I made several visits to operational MiG-29 unit (which has exactly the same seat) to do some measurements and photo work as well as using my own K-36 for measurements and details. Is it authentic? It is up to everyone to decide for themselves.

Looking around the market I am sure you will be able to find other aftermarket seats. Are they good, authentic? Have no idea. I can speak only for our work.

 

Still hope you will enjoy the kit!

 

Best regards

Gabor

Hi Gabor, and thanks for the response.  As I wrote, it's typical for me to replace the seat(s) and exhaust(s), but certainly not something that I always do, automatically.  I would be thrilled to find no need for those replacements, and from the photos you have been supplying, comparing the kit parts to the real thing, I'm thinking that aftermarket parts being an improvement is pretty unlikely!  With the exception of using the new Quinta cockpit decals, mostly because I'm too lazy to do the necessary work to make the existing cockpit detail look fantastic (and the kit details on the panels is nothing short of stunning!, I'd love to build this airplane completely out of the box.  I'm leaning in that direction, anyway.  I know for sure that no matter which direction I go, this airplane is going to be the centerpiece of the completed models I have on display!!!

There are no dedicated Resin Exhaust for that kit. But from all the accuracy discussions in other flanker threads and from the various russian resin AM manufacturers the correct diameter in 1/48 should be almost exactly 1 inch. The AMUR Reaver exhaust catalog number RC4823, AMigo Models catalog number 48023-1 and Res-kit RSU48-0012 should fit if kit's is 'correctly' sized.
