The Su-33 (NATO Codename: Flanker D) is the result of a number of modifications applied to the Su-27 for aircraft carrier suitability. These modifications include: folding wings; upgraded landing gear; and arresting gear (tail hook). The Su-33 also received several airframe updates applied to the second generation Flankers including those canards. The Su-33 would go on to serve aboard Kuznetsov while the navalized MiG-29 (MiG-29K) would be selected for India's aircraft carrier.


Molded in light gray styrene, this kit is presented on 28 parts trees plus a single tree of clear parts and one fret of photo-etched parts. In many ways, the kit has the feel of a Great Wall Hobbies kit, especially with the one-piece AA-11 Archer missiles with the fins molded in place. Nice injection-molding!
