Building the Flanker
The cockpit was well detailed and made up of a number of parts featuring raised instrumentation
Dry itting the seat revealed a large recess in the rear of the head box

The Su-27 Flanker has long been a modeller’s favourite, with a myriad of differing shades of blue camoulage and choice of exotic users. The Academy kit dating back to 1995 was hitherto the sole example in 1/48, and though not without its faults, with a splattering of aftermarket detail and corrections, an outstanding example of the type could be portrayed by the more fervent amongst us.

Twenty odd years later and HobbyBoss bring us a new tool offering in the same scale that will have been on the must have list of any Russian aviation addict. A whole Flanker family will not doubt follow with other versions of the type already announced or released.

The large stout cardboard box protects the contents and provides storage space for the sprues and other sub assemblies during construction. On lifting the lid the first thing that is noticeable is the large size of the model in this scale.
