1/144 Su-47E Berkut by Kotobukiya (Available From HobbyLink Japan – HLJ.com)
The Su-47E is all put together. Let’s take a look and see how it’s turned out!
Overall, the initial comparison to a Bandai HG holds true in terms of size and color details. However, there are also some neat gimmicks that feel totally different from those Bandai spreads throughout their kits. It looks good when it’s all put together, and somehow avoids some of the most common problems with Kotobukiya kits. On the other hand, there is room for improvement. The first would be it’s range of moment. Partly due to the original design in the anime, its arms and legs don’t move all that well because they are blocked by other parts of the body. Another problem for some would be its lack of color. It may look dull if you just put it together without painting. But in the meantime, you can make it look a lot better just with the simple use of Gundam markers or alternatives on some of the parts. Overall, it’s a very interesting build, and cool looking kit! Thanks for reading everyone.
