HBB87257 1/72 Russian T-50 PAK-FA
- Customer Reviews
Although many features are still secret it is thought the the PAK-FA will not have full stealth capability like the F-22 Raptor but will have a significantly reduced radar signature. This is a compromise in order to maintain dogfighting ability, it is also thought that the top speed will be Mach 2+ and like the Eurofighter Typhoon it will be able to 'supercruise' at supersonic speeds. It will carry an internal 30mm cannon and has internal weapons bays for air to air and anti-ship missiles. It is intended as a long term replacement for the Su-27 and MiG-29 and is being designed with input from India.
Hobby Boss are a relatively new company from China. Generally speaking their kits are well detailed and engineered.
This is not one of their easy build kits and it looks really nice, with clean crisply moulded details and fine engraved panel lines. It comes with optional decals or photo etch parts for the instrument panels.
Markings are for 2 different prorotypes.
