    Product Description
    This is a plastic model kit, which comes unassembled and unpainted. So glue, model paints and other basic modelling tools are additionally required.

    The set contains 253 parts in grey plastic; 10 parts in clear; markings for 19 aircraft from 1st and 2nd Squadrons.

    The Sukhoi Su-33 Flanker-D is an all-weather carrier-based twin-engine air superiority fighter designed by Sukhoi and manufactured by Komsomolsk-on-Amur Aircraft Production Association.

    It is a derivative of the Su-27 "Flanker" and was initially known as the Su-27K.

    First used in operations in 1995 aboard the carrier Admiral Kuznetsov, the fighter officially entered service in August 1998, by which time the designation "Su-33" was used.

    Following the break-up of the Soviet Union and the subsequent downsizing of the Russian Navy, only 24 aircraft were produced.

    Attempted sales to China and India fell through.

    Compared to the Su-27, the Su-33 has a strengthened undercarriage and structure, folding wings and stabilators, all for carrier operations. The wings are larger than on land-based aircraft for increased lift. The Su-33 has upgraded engines and a twin nose wheel, and is air refuelable.

    In 2009, the Russian Navy ordered the MiG-29K as a replacement for the Su-33.

    At least 19 marking options are possible from the number jungle on the Cartograf-printed decal sheet.
