Hobby Master HA6004 – 1/72 Scale Sukhoi Su-27SKM, TNI-AU
Hobby Master diecast model HA6004 replicates in 1/72 scale the Sukhoi Su-27SKM (NATO reporting name: Flanker B), s/n TS-2701. In the colour scheme worn while with Skadron Udara11 (11 Squadron) of the Tentara Nasional Indonesia Angkatan Udara (TNI-AU), circa 2003. The squadron is based at Iswahyudi Air Base, East Java, Indonesia. The Indonesian Air Force operates two Su-27SKMs, serial numbers TS-2701 and TS-2702.
The Sukhoi Su-27 ( NATO reporting name: Flanker) is a Russian single-seat, twin-engine and long-range supermaneuverable fighter. The first flight took place on May 20, 1977, entered service in June 1985 with the Soviet Air Force (VVS). The Su-27 is the bases for the more advanced Su-30, Su-33, Su-34, Su-35, and Su-37. Designed to counter the Grumman F-14 “Tomcat” and McDonnell Douglas F-15 “Eagle”, the Soviet’s first aircraft to have a pure fly-by-wire control system and a mostly digital avionics suite.
The Su-27SK and Su-27UBK (tandem-seat variant) are export variants identical to the Su-27S, but with downgraded avionics. China produced the Su-27SK under licence as the Shenyang J-11. A significant upgrade of the Soviet’s Su-27S fleet began in 2004, designated as the Su-27SM, a derivative of the Su-27SK.
Airframe constructed is mainly with lightweight composites, aluminium-lithium alloys and titanium alloys. The fuselage is a semi-monocoque structure with the engine air intake located on each side of the fuselage under the wing. The wing is high-mounted, cantilevered, trapezoidal shape blended into the fuselage and with leading-edge extensions (LEX). Tail unit has twin fins and all moving horizontal stabilators. The undercarriage is a retractable tricycle type.
Powered by a Saturn AL-31 afterburning turbofan engines mounted internally side by side in the rear fuselage, the Su-27SK has a maximum speed of 2,500 km/h (1,550 mph), a service ceiling of 19,000 m (62,335 ft) and range of 3,530 km (2,193 mi).

Two wingtip rails, two under each wing and four under the fuselage. The wingtip rails can be removed and replaced with specialised ECM pods. Ordnance includes air-to-air, unguided bombs and rockets.
