  1. I think enough has been shown of the new 48th scale GWH Su-35S kit in the past months. Some “friends” would say why show it at all? Some considered it to be a hype of the kit. Showing CAD’s and images of the plastic sprues and parts is far from a hype, but it is for everyone to decide. Just as decision based on the following pages of how the kit looks like on the workbench. Haneto did a fantastic out of the box build few weeks. Now it is time to add few drops of paint and do the second test build this time here in Europe. OK where do we start. Let’s cut some parts and do some cleaning of the gates. Beginning with the smaller parts. Have to say that the airframe in 48 th is fairly impressive in size. More on this later. Of course I wanted to see few of the details which I like and get the parts which go with it. Also there are sub assemblies which are easy to do, clean and prepare for painting. A pile of different parts at random, more or less cleaned and ready to go into the paint shop. Here is the cockpit, detailing of the area under the windscreen, the HUD unit with cooling ribs, electronic attachments, the gun camera, windscreen heating . . . Of course there are parts which go into the cockpit. There is one part here which I don’t like. The reason for its simplicity is very simple at the time of design we simply did not have more details of the back wall. It was clear that there is a mesh covered “window” and a pressure unit on the other side. But not much more. The choice was between designing some fiction on the back wall all add only what we know for sure. We left the fiction to other manufacturers. In comparison to this fortunately a lot of detail was available on the forward part of the cockpit, the side walls all the way to the forward bulkhead, the leg “rails” for the pilots feet and the control column base. Soon all this will get some paint and it will be more realistic. The K-36D-5 ejection seat. The harness system is provided as a separate part. The front undercarriage bay. That tinny little part in the middle is none other than the pressure refuelling point. Had a close look at it and have to say no idea how the tool makers managed to get the details on it. Like it. Of course some more parts will make up the bay. More soon. Best regards Gabor
