1/48 scale Su-27UB from Hobby Boss


Recommended Posts

Famed Indonesian modeller Alex Sidharta has just sent me this photo.....

trumpeter 48 su-27ub.jpg

It is, apparently, scaled up from the Trumpeter 1/72 scale version - with improvements.

This is a sample boxing sent to his friend - so that's all I know about it.

He promised to take more photos soon.....

Happy Flankering!

Ken

Editted to change title from Trumpeter to Hobby Boss on request

Damn, I was hoping for new 1/48 Su-27 Flanker from other manufacturers...(GWH...).

The machine of such beauty deserves more than Trumpecrap....

I can understand your "feelings" about Trumpeter...but lets have the "hole picture" first...

Oh my GOD!

Finally, they are coming. I have been waiting 5 years for these models.

I thought they were going to come from Hobbyboss but whatever... As long as they are better than Academy (which is not that hard to achieve) I am extremely happy and buying all the versions :D

J-16, J-11B, J-15.... Su-35 maybe... so excited.

It's about time. I would have never thought to see them released in my lifetime :yahoo:

Although I have amassed 9 Academy/Eduard Flankers already I will buy at least one single and double seater just to see how they compare to their Korean counterpart.

this is great news and I too am hoping for the chinese company to make a chinese version of the jet, Im surprised there are not conversion or decal kits out there, I bought the yufei mao conversion parts for the academy, but still haven't built anyting

Other than the oddly angled main gear bays, was there much else to nitpick on their 1/72 kit??

Aside from the main landing gear openings being angled incorrectly, the LERX are a little off, as was the stinger on the early variant.

Regards,
