The Su-35 is a super maneuverable Russian fighter plane. One of the reasons for this is the vectored exhaust nozzles which can direct the exhaust in a variety of directions allowing the super maneuverability required in a dogfight.
Amigo Models has released a set of exhausts for the Kitty Hawk Su-35. Packaged in a small cardboard box the parts are protected by bubble wrap and resealable bags. The resin is a very light grey resin. The parts are superbly cast but more importantly extremely well detailed. They are quite thin as they should be. The interior of the burner cans is simply breathtaking in its detailing. The detail on the inside and out is simply beautiful. Removal of the burner ring is tricky but the rest are really easy to remove. Time and patience will reward you with perfectly formed pieces.
The instructions are a simple one page affair affixed to the card stock backing. They are very easy to understand. The fun of this set, once you remove the pour blocks, will be the painting the multi-hue hot section. Amigo Models does not provide any color callouts but they do show some great pictures on their webpage for the exhausts that will be instrumental in getting the look right.
This set is simply amazing. Again patience in removing the pour blocks and painting will provide you with an ultra-realistic vector exhaust section. It is another great product from Amigo. While it states that it is designed for the Kitty Hawk kit I’m sure you could fit it to the Hobby Boss kit as well.
