1/72 Zvezda Su-27 SM

Gallery Article by Ashish Velankar on Apr 21 2021



I am in complete praise for this beautiful 1:72 SU-27 SM kit from Zvezda. I have another flanker kit from other manufacturer and the Zvezda kit wins hands down in terms of correctness of shape, dimensions, fit & finish. Although the kit has too many small parts, they all fit nicely and there is hardly any need to sand and fill.

Zvezda provides decals for 3 different units and the one I opted for is the RED 04 based out of Lipetsk. I just love that bright 2 tone blue camouflage scheme There are lots of ammunition options with the kit . I decided to make an air superiority version. 

I used Camel Fluid acrylic paints and locally available fevicryly acrylics. This kit took almost 1.5 months to make as I worked only on weekends on this. Finally it came out to be a stunner and now sits proudly within my other models.
