Trumpeter 1/32 Sukhoi 27 "Flanker" B

By Tim Zarco

The Su-27 by Trumpeter in 1/32nd scale is a relatively old kit from Trumpeter. It is to date, the largest 1:32 kit available here in the Philippines and my Su-27 took well over two months to complete. I replaced the kit provided ejection seat with a black-box cockpit. When I damaged the kit provided canopy with lacquer thinner I replaced it with a Zactomodel Canopy kit. The model was painted with Gunze lacquers and Alclad 2 lacquer paints for the bare-metal engine section and afterburners. Due to a lack of readily available markings online, I decided to use the kit provided markings. Overall, this Su-27 was a fun and challenging build, particularly because it was my first large scale aircraft and only the 7th plane that I have ever built.

Thanks to IPMS Manila for providing advice and support in the building of this model.
