Airfix Su-27 “Flanker”
April 5, 2014 in Aviation
Up to a few years ago, this was regarded as the most accurate Flanker in 1/72nd scale by many modellers. There was the Hasegawa kit which although much superior in build quality and surface detail, had some terrible inaccuracies. I built this around 8 years ago, and used the model master colors for the Su-27, but they are a bit too bright for a real Flanker. At present I am building 3 Trumpeter Flankers, which are better than the Airfix, although they still have some issues with some details, and a few fit problems as well! But I guess that’s the hobby!
