Considering that the Eduard SU-27 is a mix of update sets I'm a little disappointed.
When I heard the news that they would release a SU-27 I first thought it would be a new tooling SU-27.
This would be far better than the refurbished Academy kit.
I've got several sets for the Academy kit which doesn't bring it to the standards of the Eduard Mig-21's.
So will there be in the future a decent SU-27?
Pretty much most of Eduard's new tool releases have had a good deal of promotional forecast, while their reboxed kits are called out just a couple of months in advance.
A reboxed 48th Su-27 makes sense than all the time and investment a new tool Su-27 kit would take. However, I don't see the need for such a ridiculous MSRP! It's bordering on absurd, especially since for the asking price a corrected nose, full exhaust, wheels, and accurate Soviet modern missiles (since the kit ones are all wrong) are sold as separate accessories instead of being included. A good marketing approach, but one that gouges the comsumer! Had Eduard of included those useful accessories; it would have been a great deal.
