  1. Thanks Tali/Greenmats! http://www.greenmats.club/ Clearprop Models is to release new tool 1/72nd Sukhoi Su-25 "Frogfoot" kits: - ref. 72017 - Sukhoi Su-25 "Frogfoot" - ref. 72018 - Sukhoi Su-25UB "Frogfoot-B" Source: http://www.greenmats.club/forums/topic/6389-clear-prop-172-su-25-–-анонс/ Source: http://scalemodels.ru/news/14347-anons-ClearProp-1-72-su-25---3D-rendery.html V.P.
  2. The first of last week's "isolation" projects completed is Su-25, the Peruvian Air Force. About the model itself I will not waste the words, quite poor but easy to assemble and does not require some major waste of time. They said aftermarket, everything else out of the box. Here's the picture. Regards to the next project, probably tomorrow.
  3. Hello to all.Here is my latest 1:72 SU-25UB model.If you want to know more you can watch the full build process on the following link https://youtu.be/GRhZYxBl9Zc
  4. Some rumours say the next Great Wall Hobby (GWH) 1/48th kits might be a family of Sukhoi Su-25 "Frogfoot". Same rumours for Kitty Hawk. Wait and see and fingers crossed. V.P.
  5. Su-25, Peruvian Air Force 2005, no. 071 in 1/48. Made from an old OEZ Letohrad (Czechoslovakia) kit. I used photoetched parts from Eduard and Part. The rest is self-made (for example flaps, slots, airbrakes etc.). Decals are from Authentic Decals 4847 set. Miss of stencils is not a mistake in this case.
  6. After the two-seats Su-25UTG/UB(K) "Frogfoot-B" kits (link), Kovozávody Prostějov is to release in 2018 1/48th Sukhoi Su-25K & SM "Frogfoot-A" kits These kits are base on the old OEZ/Smer "Frogfoot" models.

  8. KP Kit (comes with resin and etched cockpit) Extended the chord of the tailplanes with plastic card Some Eduard etched used (mainly the panel under the front fuselage) Resin wheels Intake & exhaust covers from some chap via Britmodeller (you know who you are!) Aftermarket pitot tubes Painted with a mix of Gunze, Tamiya and Akan Flory wash for weathering (the light in the pics has bleached this out - sorry) Not an easy kit!

  9. Hi, Just thought I'd show some progress of this kit, more to appease RMP2 than anything. I've not taken any pics until now as frankly I'm not a good modeller when compared to a lot of you people on here, and the kit itself is a bit poor in my opinion. Anyway the kit is the KP Masterlit/Masterline boxing so it comes with nice looking resin and etch cockpit, getting it to fit though, well let's just say its held together by a lot of superglue and foul language! I think the next job to tackle is those gaps in the wheel wells.....

  10. Su-25UB/UBK Upgrade Sets (for Smer) 1:48 Eduard Smer's kit isn't new by any stretch of the imagination, the originals having their roots in the 1980s. Over the years the basic sprues have been updated, adjusted and reboxed in other people's boxes from the initial OEZ through Kopro and even in some Eduard special editions, from where these sets probably began. Eduard's new range of sets are here to improve on the kit detail in the usual modular manner. Get what you want for the areas you want to be more of a focal point. As usual with Eduard's Photo-Etch (PE) and Mask sets, they arrive in a flat resealable package, with a white backing card protecting the contents and the instructions that are sandwiched between. Interior (49835) Two frets are included, one nickel plated and pre-painted, the other in bare brass, plus a small piece of clear acetate with a blast screen shaped pre-printed for cut-out. A complete set of new layered instrument panels in both cockpits and side consoles are the primary parts on the painted set, with sidewall inserts; new rudder pedals; ejection seat details; HUD on the coaming, and canopy internal structure also supplied, which facilitates splitting the twin-opener canopy into individual sections for posing open, with sill inserts and bulkhead details added. Zoom! Set (FE835) This set contains a reduced subset of the interior, namely the pre-painted parts that are used to improve on the main aspects of the cockpit, as seen above. Whatever your motivations for wanting this set, it provides a welcome boost to detail, without being concerned with the structural elements. Seatbelts STEEL (FE836) In case you don't already know, these belts are Photo-Etch (PE) steel, and because of their strength they can be etched from thinner material, which improves realism and flexibility in one sitting. Coupled with the new painting method that adds perceived extra depth to the buckles and other furniture by shading, they are more realistic looking and will drape better than regular brass PE. As well as the two sets of crew belts, you also get seat cushions; headbox details; leg-restraints, and a set of pull-handles either side of the pilot's knees that gets him out of there in case of an emergency. Exterior (48926) This larger bare brass set contains some important upgrades, such as a complete new section of the nose gear bay that is squared off, rather than rounded like the kit part, as well as detail parts for the remaining forward section; fuel tank fillers; a mass of additional and replacement aerials, sensors and panels around the nose, under the chin, and at the rear of the aircraft; an entire set of nose gear bay doors with shaped and folded hinges; chaff and flare details on the tail, plus additional panels there and around the engine exhausts; a new bay doors for the main gear in the engine sponsons, and finally, enhancements to the wingtip pods. Masks (EX553) Supplied on a sheet of yellow kabuki tape, these pre-cut masks supply you with a full set of masks for the canopy, with compound curved handled by using frame hugging masks, while the highly curved gaps are in-filled with either liquid mask or offcuts from the background tape. In addition you get a set of hub/tyre masks for all the wheels (including the out-riggers), allowing you to cut the demarcation perfectly with little effort. Review sample courtesy of
  11. I'm busy selling my old stash off for a new stash, and one kit that is on my list for my new stash is a good kit of the Su-25 Frogfoot ('Grach') in 1/72nd scale. Specifically I'm looking for the single-seater. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Best Regards, Jason

  13. In my opinion, the ArtModel Su-25K is the most accurate Rook currently available in 1/72 but it is by no means an easy build. It’s a limited-run, mixed-media kit and that comes with some compromises in terms of fit. Also, the plastic seemed to have an inconsistent texture in places, which made it difficult to re-scribe straight panel lines after the repeated heavy filling and sanding sessions. Nonetheless, the shape is right and there is some really nice surface detail. I augmented the kit with HR Model etch, which provided some nice details for the cockpit and airframe. The B8M rocket pods came from a Dragon weapon set (slightly lengthened for accuracy), the S24 heavy rockets came from an ICM set, and the R60s are from Streem; the load-out is intended to be representative of that used during Russian ops in Chechnya. I used Authentic Decals Su-25 Part 1 for the markings, which I am sorry to say were a disaster. I think the decals must have had no carrier film as they disintegrated on contact with the water, especially those that were just a single layer of ink ie the white numerals. In the end, I cobbled together the necessary markings from the kit decals and what I could salvage from the Authentic Decals sheet by using some Microscale liquid decal film. By the way, the kit decals were entirely usable and behaved well, although the stencils lacked a little finesse. I’ll admit to not being 100% confident about the colours I’ve used for this particular machine (from the 960th ShAP at Primorsko-Akhtarsk in 2009) but I think it looks just about OK overall, although not my best work.
  14. Ok I know we have had a big run with Jet STGB's and that the STGB calendar is closed until November but Enzo, bless his little heart said we can still come up with Ideas, so.... The Sukhoi Su-25 "Frogfoot" This is an aircraft that has been in service for close to 35 years and probably been used in conflicts around the would for probably as many years as well, and still is! A design of the 70's, it made it's first flight in 1975 with series production starting in 1978 before entering service with the Soviet Air Force in 1981. In a few peoples minds it was a design "stolen" from the US...as it shares similar design cues with the Northrop designed YF-9 from the A-X Program, in which the eventual winner was the Fairchild Republic A-10. It's a popular "Ground Pounder" that has served in 28 countries and is still in front line service with most of them! There are lots of interesting colour schemes to choose from including some amazing ones from Central Africa. For me I have a Digital one in mind from the Ukrainian Air Force. If this one gets the numbers, it won't be until 2018, so plenty of time to think about it. ok, now time to get a list started: 1, trickyrich - host 2, exdraken 3, Ilking 4, Peter W 5, Radleigh 6, Skids 7, CliffB 8, Rob G 9, vesthepes 10,
  15. Some of the original OEZ/Kovozávody Prostějov's (KP) classics Sukhoi 1/48th kits were becoming difficult to find. They're to be re-released soon by SMĚR (http://www.smer.cz/en/). ref.0853 - Su-7BKL "Fitter-A" - http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10326152 ref.0854 - Su-7BMK "Fitter-A" - http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10326153 ref.0855 - Su-17/22M-3 "Fitter-H"- http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10326154 ref.0856 - Su-17/22M-4 "Fitter-K"- http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10326155 ref.0857 - Su-25 "Frogfoot-A"- http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10326156 ref.0858 - SU-25UB/UBK "Frogfoot-B" - http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10326147 V.P.
  16. Stills from a recently-released North Korean video show a novel approach to ejection seat head box covers... http://theaviationist.com/2015/08/05/nk-su-25-headrest-cover/ Now waiting for Eduard to do this as a 1/48 detailing kit, presumably also including tiny bust of The Glorious Leader to go on the cockpit coaming.
  17. ArtModel has just released a new variant from its 1/72nd two-seat "Frogfoot-B" kit, the Sukhoi Su-39 (Su-25TM) - ref. 7217 Source: http://www.jadarhobby.pl/art-model-am-7217-172-su39-p-44491.html http://modelsua.com/Sukhoi-Su-39-Su-25TM-Frogfoot-1-72-ArtModel-7217.html V.P.
  18. I'm thinking about building a 1/72 model of the Su-25SM, probably using the Zvezda Su-25 kit. I'm aware that the Su-25SM is an upgrade to existing Su-25's pulled out of service and refurbished with improved avionics, weapons control systems, etc. These details would (I think) be confined to the cockpit, and therefore not obvious on a model with a closed canopy. So far, the only external difference between the -25 and the -25SM I've found is that the -25SM has only 4 pylons on each wing, versus 5 for the standard Su-25. I've found a couple of walkarounds of the Su-25SM, so I suppose I could work my way through those, comparing the kit parts with the photos; on the other hand, if anyone can offer some guidance, it would be very welcome! Thanks in advance; John
  19. Su-25 Frogfoot Air Intakes 1:32 Quickboost from Aires Aires in their various incarnations are continuing to expand their range of 1:32 scale detail sets. This one, contains the auxiliary air intakes for the Trumpeter Su-25 Frogfoot. Contained in a poly sleeve, with a card backing these intakes, moulded in dark grey resin are direct replacements for the kits parts. There are five types of intakes all moulded with no sign of flash and minimal contact with the casting block these will be ready to use in no time at all. The intake lips are beautifully thin, certainly much finer than the kit parts. They will be a great improvement and add that little extra something to the completed model. Conclusion A great little detail set that can really help set off a model. The intakes look great in the resin and are so easy to use. Highly recommended for anyone with the big Frogfoot.

  20. Hello all. I am nick from Greece and this is my first topic here. I have been watching the forum for a while but this is the first time I post a WIP. I am new to modeling and this is my seventh model so far. My project is the the old Su-25 from OEZ with after market 1. cokpit from neomega 2. EDUARD interior 48416 and exterior set 48421 3. EDUARD BRAsSIN Su-25 pilons 648054 4. EDUARD Masks EX079 5. EDUARD BRASSIN R-60 / AA-8 Aphid 1/48 648082 6. EDUARD BRASSIN Rocket launcher B-8M1 1/48 648041 7. NORTH STAR MODELS Kh-29 L (NATO AS-14 Kedge A) with AKU-58 (pylon) 8. NORTH STAR MODELS Kh-25 MT (NATO Karen-10) with APU-68 I want to build this aircraft of the UKRAINE air force with splitter camo The build started from the cockpit from the canopy that I added plastic to replicate the frame: I continued with the cockpit from neomega that is very good in detail as well is the fit. I painted the cockpit with AKAN colors. hhThe disappointment came at the wheel whells that came with zero detail. So I decided to scratch new from EVERGREEN plastic. The result is this: I painted with Gunze and AKAN colors and it looks like this: II painted the EDUARD seat (I did not used neomega) I closed the fuselage and the cockpit inside: after that it was time to make the main gear whells. The kit had as I said zero detail and looked like this: So Evergreen to the rescue again. The result is satisfying for me because it is really the first time I attempt to scratch something: And a picture of the total progress so far: I would be pleased to hear your comments
