Recently, Sluban has also made models of well-known combat aircraft such as the SU-57, which no longer look like toys and are therefore also of interest to collectors.
|Building Time ca.:||2 Hours 30 Minutes|
First we build the central area of the fuselage including the landing gear. Then it’s the turn of the wings. These consist of a layer of plates onto which tiles are then applied. This is where the first stickers come into play. Sluban does not offer printed parts. However, the stickers are transferred with an application film and therefore look like prints. The front and rear are built separately and then attached to the fuselage.
The chassis can be completely lowered and covered by flaps. Other manufacturers can learn something from that. The final stages of construction are taking place in the rear area. 2 jet engines, 2 elevators and 2 rudders are built. This completes the rather large model.
Sluban does not use any special molded parts, as is usual with COBI. The SU-57 doesn’t look bad at all. Of course, special components would make for a smoother look, but if you’re building something with bricks, then it’s okay to have a brick look.
