Su-35S ‘Flanker-E’ is the latest and very likely last version of the formidable Flanker series. It is not to be confused with the Su-35 of the late ’80s, which was the first to be designated Su-35 (aka Su-27M and T-10M). The first new Su-35 prototype, Su-35BM bort number 901, first took to the air in February 2008 and has since entered operational service. Featuring powerful Saturn 117 engines equipped with thrust-vectoring nozzles, reduced RCS, new sensor suit and ability to carry current and future air released weapons, this generation 4++ fighter is a force to be reckoned with. And since I’ve seen a few of its displays in person, I can safely say, it is probably the most maneuverable fighter jet in the world.

The model was built out of the box, with some little scratchbuilt details. You can visit in progress posts by clicking HERE.

Finally finished. I am not completely satisfied with the end result. Too much time has passed, since I’ve began this project, Revell moulds have deteriorated quite a lot, Model Alliance decals failed on me, so I had to resort to ALPS printed HaHen ones, which aren’t bad, but not great. In the end, even the base was making me problems – I wanted to recreate water surface with clear silicone but unfortunately I realized, that it dried in the tube so I was left without. I improvised a bit and tried making water with PVA (wood) glue – again the result is not the best, but it will do.

Size comparison with its Cold War cousin. I guess I have to add F-86 to the collection and possibly a FockeWulf Ta 183 as a daddy.
