Sukhoi S-37 Berkut

Sukhoi Su-37 Berkut

 


 Italeri's boxing of the 1/72 scale S-37 Berkut is available online from Squadron.com

 

Description

 

This is 1/72 original Zvezda S-37, later re-boxed by Italeri and Revell.

It's a simple kit to build with sparse decals. There are not many references that can be found for it.

Fit is acceptable and I only used a little amount of putty.

Decals are on the thin side and conform very well with surface detail without any silvering, but colour density is not good. I also have the Italeri offering and decals there are much superior to Zvezda decals. The aircraft appears to have to different types of markings. An early variant (depicted here) with white panel on the right vertical fin, yellow leading edges of air intakes and Sukhoi logo on the nose cone. And the current one - without the white panel on the fin and yellow outlines of air intakes and with Sukhoi logo moved from the nose cone to the sides of air intakes.

The aircraft has now been redesignated as the Su-47 and presented at shows such as MAKS 2001.
