The Modeller wanting to have this 1:72 scale aircraft in his collection has apparently many options. The Su-27 is produced in kits by Revell, Hasegawa, Airfix, Heller, Italeri and Nakotne. Unfortunately, many of these suffer both in their shape and accuracy, with most of them having been released in the early 1990's when accurate and detailed information on the Flanker was difficult to obtain. Many modellers are still waiting for a quality model Su-27. Hopefully soon their wishes will be fulfilled by Trumpeter with a Flanker which has been listed for some time in their catalogue. I decided some time ago, to build the Su-27 from kits available at the time and reviews regard the kits from Airfix and Hasegawa as the most usable kits. After comparing the two kits I decided to use the Hasegawa kit after comparing these two models. Their kit has a beautiful surface, subtle but sharp engraved panel lines, typical of models from the Japanese manufacturer.
