Su-30 MK to Su-30MKM.
kIT-Mini Hobby Model + Zhengdefu
Decals-VFA Production (MIG-29N)
This build was a kit bash of the Mini Hobby Model Su-30MK kit and Zhengdefu
flanker kits from my scrap yard. Initially
I wanted to a build Su-30MKM by using the MHM kit, but the MHM nose is out of shape in
my opinion, then I took an old Zhengdefu nose with its better shape and bashed it
to the MHM body. Well if we want batter accuracy, we can always use the Academy
Su-29UB with resin corrections nose by Zacto.

convert the Su-30MK to a Su-30MKM, I've to scratchbuild a few features that are unique
to the SU-30MKM. These include adding the Canard & shoulders from Bondite and
plastic cards, the IRST was done by removing the original IRST, sand the cutting
edge with 340 grade sand paper, then wet sanding with 400 grade and followed by
1000grade sand paper, after that polish with autosol, Tamiya compound and car
wax, and I rebuild a new IRST by using Bondite.
modifications include converting the front landing gear to fit twin tires, adding
a refueling probe, RWR Antenna, MAWS antenna, FFWL antenna, RFLW ANTENNA,
and increase the chord of the rudder, and reposition the TVC Nozzle.
