This has got to be the best time to be a modeler of modern Russian aircraft. I remember as a helicopter pilot in the Cold War, it was virtually impossible to find photos of aircraft let alone weapons systems. Advanced Modeling is the latest from the Russian manufacturers to represent missiles and bombs. This is the first time I’ve had the opportunity to review this company’s products. All I can say is wow!
Packaged in a self-sealing bag, a card stock backing keeps everything safe. The instructions are glued to the backing card. They are beautifully printed on two folded pieces of paper. The instructions are written in Russian and English. The drawings are some of the most detailed drawings I’ve seen. The instructions even include some of the capabilities of the missile. Something unheard of during the Cold War. The instructions are broken down into two separate assemblies. The instructions also have the decal locations prominently displayed so there is no question what goes where.
