This handcrafted Su-27 "Flanker" 1/48 scale model is painstakingly built by our skilled craftsmen with a wealth of detail. The Su-27, NATO reporting name: Flanker, is a twin-engine supermanoeuverable fighter aircraft designed by Sukhoi. The Su-27 most often flies air superiority missions, but is able to perform almost all combat operations. The Su-27's basic design is aerodynamically similar to the MiG-29, but it is substantially larger. It is a very large aircraft, and to minimize its weight its structure has a high percentage of titanium (about 30%, more than any of its contemporaries). The Su-27 began to enter operational service around 1984, although manufacturing difficulties kept it from appearing in strength until 1986.
This handcrafted model is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen with a wealth of detail and makes a great gift for any veteran, aviation enthusiast or history buff.
