  1. I have found this thread a bit late but definitely your work in progress report will help me a lot during my Su-35UB (T-10UBM-1 "801") build. I have recently got an Academy Su-27 Flanker B with Wolfpack Su-33 conversion set from Ebay. I will use canards + shoulders and nose in my build. Serkan
  2. I did same camo first on my F-15C test aircraft: I will do next on F-16C To wash panel lines I have used ordinary aqua paints (gouache) which can be completely removed under tap water. I have added only a drop of dishwasher detergent to break surface tension. During "Flankerstein" build I used oil colors thinned with mineral spirit but it caused a lot of problem such as damaging the paint and decals during wiping off excessive wash... Serkan
  3. Some more pictures: Next step is to paint and attach arresting hook and IFR probe & door and load the missiles... Serkan
  4. All parts were assembled to aircraft fuselage: This project is now very close to end and ready to place next to her sister "Flankerstein" Serkan
  5. The nose landing gear assembly was cloned from Trumpeter Su-34 kit: The lights are from Revell/Zvezda kit and the wheels and mud guard from Armored Wheels. The pylons and little antennas and probes were painted as well. Next is to put all parts together... Serkan
  6. The exhausts were painted with different shades of MM Metalizer colors and TVN assemblies were mounted to airframe: Next step will be the landing gear assemblies... Serkan
  7. After a long break here are some futher progress: The decals were sealed with Future/Pledge and let it dry for a week. After then the panels were washed with aqua color: The excessive paints were removed with a lightly moistened kitchen paper towel and then dull coat was applied to entire aircraft to seal the panel wash and get final camouflage finish. Next step is to finish exhausts by adding TVNs... Serkan
  8. Last few weeks I was heavily involved with garden work. I had to remove around 15 cubic meters soil and replace 5 tons rocks and concrete blocks for our new garden design. As you can imagine after such exhaustive work my fingers lost their sensitivity for precise model build... I need to give a short break till I can control my hands again... Although I gave a short break in my ongoing projects I have used this period to study how to modify/improve Academy and it's cheap copy MHM Flankers (which I have dozen of them) to build T-10M series (Su-35 with canards) in 1:48 scale. It won't hurt much when I chop/butcher these kits... Serkan
  9. Nicely built Flanker Stephen. Although Academy Flankers have known issues (e.g. lenght) once it is finished looks always beautiful. I have dozen of Academy and it's cheap MHM copies (besides Kitty Hawk, Hobby Boss and Kinetic Flankers) and I am planning to use them to build T-10M series because it won't hurt too much when I butcher these relatively cheap kits Serkan
  10. Nicely detailed cockpit tub and well aligned rivets Sam... It should have taken quite long time to drill all rivets one after other... Serkan
  11. In the company I use Catia V5 to view part assemblies and extract necessary geometries for my work. But I have done my own drawings first time on this Blackbird project. Indeed I did some sketches for Ching Kuo in the past to learn CAD tool features. Serkan
  12. I have just caught this thread. All these 3D designs and prints are awesome... Several months ago I had launched a 3D Blackbird thread in this forum but since then I made no further progress. I had even bought a resin printer but I haven't opened its box yet. Maybe seeing your builds can motivate me to go back 3D design/printing world Serkan
  13. Nice intro and start. I have set of KP Frogfoots single and two seater versions. I was assuming that KP kits should not be too bad because Eduard has reboxed this kit. But definetely Revell Frogfoot has better details than KP one. Serkan
  14. Yes indeed. My intention is not to sacrifice beautiful Kinetic Su-33 kit for T-10M conversion. Serkan
  15. I know this thread is very old one and nowadays there are high end Su-33 kits available in the market but today I have seen in ebay by chance a Flanker set including Academy Su-27 Flanker B, Begemot decals and Wolfpack Su-33 conversion parts WP48123. The price was incredibly cheap (only 66.00 € including shipping) and of coarse I didn't miss this chance. My intention is to build T-10M series using Academy and it's cheap copy of MHM kits using resin canards and shoulders. I am sure that this conversion will be easier than butchering beautiful Kinetic Su-33 kit to get canards and shoulders... Serkan
  16. Very nice result for the first time Nikolay. It is hard to identify which one you did with riveting tool. Did you make any practice on plastic sheet or spare parts or directly go with the Vigilante? Serkan
  17. I had bought this tool several years ago but haven't tried yet. Maybe you can guide me how to use it... Serkan
  18. Amazing work Bill!.. I wish one day I would have been able to finish one of my ongoing dozens of builds... Serkan
  19. Lovely finish for such poor kit!.. I had built two samples in past and it costed me several times longer build time than a regular build: I know, the horizontal tails were misplaced but I was really bored of working on these kits... Serkan
  20. Very impressive work! I have several 2000s in different scales in my stash but I haven't started any of them yet.. Serkan
