Platz/Zvezda Su-27SM Flanker B(Mod)


Scott Van Aken

Platz has released a very nice photo etch set to go along with their recent Su-27SM kit. This particular set is and exterior set and produced for Platz by Eduard.

So let me start with the big bits. There is an interior for the speed brake, main gear well side panels and the wiring/plumbing that goes in that area. The main gear get brake lines and etched oleo scissors. There is a set of canopy locks for inside the canopy. Inside the lower intake is a set of grills for the air bypass doors. The long skinny bits with pointed ends are the base for the missile rails. you also get engine panel hinges, a lot of very tiny static dischargers and a nose gear lock piece for the nose gear well. There are rocket nozzles for some of the missiles and the cruiform fins for one of the missile types is also included. A few other antennas and smallish bits are also in the set. Apparently Platz at one time had considered including this and the interior set together as the parts start at #41. 

Besides being superbly done, the fret comes with full instructions.
