This time, I will try to make a modern Russian military fighter for the first time in a while. It was released by Academy a long time ago. I started making it a long time ago and threw it away on the way. I’ll try to make it to the end this time.
Oh! When I open the box, suddenly there are upper and lower parts of the aircraft. How exciting. This kit is sold with additional parts for Su-30 in the Su-27 kit. According to the instruction manual, it seems difficult to handle many things. Since the shape of the vertical tail is different, the Wolfpack remodeling kit is recommended.
I wonder if the modified mold version is a modification of the wrong part of the Su-30MK or an improvement of the details around the cockpit from the Su -27. Unfortunately, I don’t know much about it as I’m not a Flanker expert or familiar with current jets. But it says that the upper end of the vertical stabilizer should be cut and the different parts should be attached. Also, the Su-30MK does not have a canard, but the export model to the Indian Air Force is a different type. If I compare it to the AFV, the German Type IV tank has a lot of differences between Type D and Type G. The Franker family is complicated because there are many variants.
In other words, the upper end of the vertical stabilizer is lowered diagonally backward in the case of Su-27 and Su-30, but the shape of Su-30MK is not so lowered. Rather, the top of the vertical stabilizer is horizontal. The size of the rudder of the vertical tail seems to be bigger. Well… just move my hand to see if I can finish it.
When I make it, the assembly instruction manual seems very simple. However, most of the parts need to be glued together and military equipment such as missiles are attached, so there are many detailed works.
There was no mention of ballast in the manual. However, while it is still being made, it seems to be heavy in the back when I balance in the middle. Just in case, I will put about 2 fishing weights in the radome.
I am interested in models of tanks, airplanes, ships, military figures, I build them little by little when I feel like it. I am also interested in the history of war. My starting is Tamiya’s Military Miniature series in elementary school.
From elementary school through university students repeatedly suspend and restart my modeling, it’s about 25 years of this hobby’s history.
Born in February 1970, I live in Tokyo. From February 2007 I was quietly doing a site called “Miniature-Arcadia”. It is being transferred to this blog with the same name from December 2016. My update pace is uneven, but please come to see me here occasionally.
