This was another review I completed for The Modelling News
You can read the articles here, which covers construction and finishing of the model
Overall, I enjoyed building the model, and think it ranks as one of kittyhawks better models to date, only let down by the lack of drooped nozzles and being able to make a late version Flanker OOB. Well, that and the normal KH issues like poor instructions and could-be-better moulding .
Really though, I thought KH might have started to overcome a few of these things by now. That KH instructions continue to mis number parts or show them incorrectly is incredibly frustrating, and seems to just illustrate (excuse the pun) a lack of listening to customer feedback
I cant comment on the accuracy, but nothing really glaring stood out to me.
Since I have completed this kit, Great Wall Hobbies have released theirs, and were I ever to do another, this is the kit I would choose, being superior in all facets, but I wont do another as one Su-35 in the cabinet is enough for me.
This was also the first time I completely painted a model using Mr Color laquers, and I will certainly be using them again. I have to say, the finished model looks quite striking in the cabinet due to its size and that colour scheme.
