First Look

Here is the latest from Caracal, this set for the Kinetic Models 1/48 Su-33 Sea Flanker kit and provides markings for six distinctive subjects.

The aircraft presented in this set include:

  • J-15, 552, Flight Test, 2014
  • J-15, 554, Flight Test, 2015
  • J-15, 105, Liaoning, 2015
  • J-15, 108, Liaoning, 2015
  • J-15, 113, Liaoning, 2015
  • J-15, 114, Liaoning, 2015

This set provides test and operational markings to convert the Su-33 to its Chinese counterpart, the J-15. If you're interested in a different look for the Sea Flanker kit, this set will bring you to the 'other' operational user of the Su-33.
