This kit provides highly detailed corrected pylons for the 1/32 Su-27 kit.  The pylons also correct the position and angle of the missiles (missiles sold separately).  Detailed launching mechanisms are included on the undersides of all of the pylons if you decide to display your model with missiles.

The kit includes 10 resin pylons, 6 resin actuator parts (2 are extras) and mounting pins for the wingtip pylons.  The wingtip pylons are included in this set or can be purchased separately.

Above photo includes APU-73 and APU-470 pylons mastered by Alexander Rogal.

Resin casting is of a very high quality and all the detail is very well done with no air bubbles.  Chris at Zactomodels has gone to great lengths to give the 1/32 modellers some very special product with the accurate detail that this scale demands.  This latest set is the same glorious high end quality that Zactomodels is famous for.

I would like to thank Chris at Zactomodels for providing me with this product sample.
