Product Article by Steve Bamford on Mar 18 2020



This resin nosecone from Zactomodels lengthens the nose and corrects its angle as well as providing detailed engraved panel lines corrects the shape of the intake and includes a new intake lip.  Trumpeter has 'retooled' this part of their kit on the SU-27UB, Su-30MKK and newer releases of the Su-27 Flanker B.

Zactomodels also produces a 1/32 Su-27 Canopy detail set as well as 1/32 Su-27 resin intakes or you can buy all 3 sets in their combo set.

Resin casting is of a very high quality and all the detail is very well done with no air bubbles.  The nose cone has fantastic panel line detail and the nosecone is hollow to reduce weight and ease the installation.  You also get 2 thin stripes of styrene for making the various antenna on the nosecone, this is detailed in the instruction sheet.  The instruction sheet is one page and includes well drawn line drawings and text that easy explains and shows the process to install this nosecone.

This new resin set from Zactomodels will permit modelers to take their 1/32 Su-27 to a higher level of accuracy and detail and correct the angle of the kit nose cone.

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