AVIATION DESIGN KIT DESIGNED BY ÉRIC RANTET
The Su 27 Flanker single seat supersonic interceptor is a typical fourth generation Soviet fighter that has come to be generally recognized as one of the world's best fighters of the 90's.
The remarkable airshow routines flown by pilots of Su-27 have demonstrated manouevres such as the tailslide and the cobra which simply cannot be emulated by Western fighters. The Sukhoi SU-27 is a beautiful aircraft both on the ground and in the air with amazing maneuverability characteristics and a firepower to reckon with in air-to-air combat.
The SU-27 from AVIATION DESIGN is a super scale kit with all the panel lines, fuselage hatches, gun, antennas engraved. It also includes many scale details (cockpit, landing gear, pitot probes, air brake...).
THE SU-27 IS FULLY MOLDED IN COMPOSITE MATERIALS :
Of course, it is fully molded in composite materials (fiberglass, carbon and epoxy) to reduce the assembly time, and improve the overall quality.
