  1. Zvezda catalog 2018

    31 Jan - 4 Feb 2018.
  2. Kitty Hawk's 1/48th Scale Su-22M-3 & M-4

    I was under the impression they were including pylons to go with it or are these going to be seperate I wonder?
  3. 1/48 KH Su-35 Flanker

    Not updated for a while, mostly due to laziness as I've been doing quite a bit of work..... All the main camo colours on, had to do a bit of playing about with the darkest blue to tone it down a bit.
  4. SU-27UB 1/72

    Stunning job, great work.
  5. Just been on Naza Model Arts Fb page, there appears to be a conversion in development for the Hobby Boss kit. It looks nice so far wil have to keep an eye on it.
  6. I suppose it depends on what your planning to build, I don't think there's any planned release of an original 90's era Su-35 or Su-37, so it would be the only way to go. IPMS19 is tackling a similar conversion at the moment although he's using the SOL Sea Flanker set on an Academy UB........ http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235026323-sukhoi-su-30mkm-148/&tab=comments#comment-2812648 I was sure Hobby Boss/Trumpeter were due to release a canard equipped Su-30MK but just double checked and can't find anything, maybe I imagined it.
  7. 1/48 KH Su-35 Flanker

    The wings fit well in that the tab/slot system is a snug fit and lines everything up nicely. There were small gaps on both upper and lower surfaces that required filling though.

    Thanks for confirming the colours Sanjuro, I thought that was probably the case. Build coming together now, main wings and air intakes on, I painted the interiors of the intakes to make things easier going forward. Also added mesh grills to the intakes, these aren't included in the kit and apparently were not fitted to early Su-35's, it being retrospective fit. The tail fins are not fixed in place yet and will be going on after all the painting done to help get access to paint the engine cowlings.

    Mmmmm, Kitty Hawk paint call out has the multi tone operational scheme as being a 4 tone camo, with 1 grey and 3 shades of blue. Their suggesting that the lower fuselage and wings are a different pale blue from the upper fuselage is this correct?, looking at many photo's and the lower blue and the lightest upper blue appear the same as with legacy Flanker types. @Flankerman Any help appreciated!

    Gear bays done and fuselage together........ The nose gear parts are not very well engineered IMHO. Two half go together forming the two sides and roof with the two ends then being joined. You end up with a join li e right down the middle of the roof which needs attention. This didn't go too badly considering I'd already painted up the area. The main fuselage........
  11. Flanker reference thread

    Some good Su-35 walk round pics......... http://news.fjsen.com/2014-11/07/content_15177245_all.htm
  12. It’s not a big problem to add a bit of plastic and sand to blend in, it’s actually discussed here in one of the builds in the Flanker GB, scroll down to post 15.... http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235027164-148-su-30mk2-venezuelan-air-force-update-2710/ Muzz
  13. Double Fulcrum Build

    Some more work done on both kits....... Gear legs, wheels and pylons fitted to the HEH kit. And some NMF areas sprayed (Alclads) on the Academy kit on the leading edge of the tailplane and find. Currently working on painting up the exhaust cans.
  14. 1/48 KH Su-35 Flanker

    Cheers guys. Cockpit now fitted and working on the undercarriage bays.
  15. Kitty Hawk's 1/48th Scale Su-22M-3 & M-4

    I was talking about the actual review of the kit, the fact that the reviewer has cut and joined plastic.
