Su-27 Flanker-B Russian Air Force 941st IAP, Red 36, Barents Sea

Historical Note:




The Sukhoi Su-27 (Russian: Сухой Су-27; NATO reporting name: Flanker; nicknamed "Sushka" in USSR) is a twin-engine super maneuverable fighter aircraft designed by Sukhoi. It was intended as a direct competitor for the large United States fourth-generation fighters such as the Grumman F-14 Tomcat and F-15 Eagle, with 3,530-kilometre (1,910 nmi) range, heavy aircraft ordnance, sophisticated avionics and high maneuverability. The Su-27 was designed for air superiority missions, and subsequent variants are able to perform almost all aerial warfare operations. It was designed with the Mikoyan MiG-29 as its complement. The Su-27 entered service with the Soviet Air Forces in 1985. The primary role was long range air defence against American SAC B-1B and B-52G/H bombers, protecting the Soviet coast from aircraft carriers and flying long range fighter escort for Soviet heavy bombers such as the Tu-95 "Bear", Tu-22M "Backfire" and Tu-160 "Blackjack".

  1. Sharp Model of the last pinnacle of Soviet Aviation 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Aug 2020

    I have been fascinated by this aircraft ever since the first grainy black and white pictures appeared in the West back in the mid 1980's. The more information and pictures came out, the more impressed I was. Hobby Master has done a great job designing and constructing this replica with very few flaws. Some have complained that the medium blue in the camouflage is too dark, but after studying many different photos in different lighting conditions, I think is about as close as you can reasonably get in a model. The medium blue should extend closer to the green radome underneath the red 36, but that is a minor imperfection. The airbrake piece has joints that are more flush than shown in the pictures which is a plus. All the paint and printing is sharp and accurately placed, though the red 36 on the left vertical tail may be barely crooked. The whole cockpit area and canopy look great. Some people think the panel lines are too wide and deep, but if they were any finer, you would need a wash in order to see them at a normal scale distance. I am not a fan of most of the factory washes as they are too dark or bold. The light shadowing that occurs with most Hobby Master panel lines looks good to me.
