The Su-33 Flanker D is an all-weather carrier-based air defense fighter based on the Su-27. The airplane had a production run of 24 units. Hasegawa has produced a kit of this interesting aircraft for modelers. As usual, Quickboost has added several items to improve the accuracy of the basic Su-33 Flanker D kit.

This set consists of new horizontal stabilizers. The attached photo shows the Quickboost part compared to an Su-27 from my collection. The stabilizers are the correct shape for the model and are interchangeable with the kit parts. The level of surface detail of the resin parts is excellent. They are molded in a brownish-grey colored resin. They are smooth, seamless, and bubble-free.

I highly recommend this product if you want a really superior-looking model. Since these parts are interchangeable with the kit parts, they can be recommended for all levels of modelers.

These parts are imported into the US by Stevens International. Many local hobby shops can obtain these parts via Stevens. Several on-line shops also carry Quickboost.

Thanks to Quickboost and IPMS USA for the chance to do this review.
