I don't claim to be any sort of weapons expert but are you sure the Bulgarians even use the Kh-25? I know they do use the Kh-29.

To answer my own question: http://www.bgspotters.net/pictures/pic.php?subm=3&oprt=2&form_PicId=23670 and a bonuspic of the Kh-29 http://www.bgspotters.net/pictures/pic.php?subm=3&oprt=2&form_PicId=23671

Don't see any pics of twoseaters carrying them though, just fueltanks and these http://www.bgspotters.net/pictures/pic.php?subm=3&oprt=2&form_PicId=14058 http://www.bgspotters.net/pictures/pic.php?subm=3&oprt=2&form_PicId=2528

Thanks for the links, I had a look online the other day and found one pick of a Bulgarian example carrying the Kh-25 training round, can't remember if it was a two seater or not. Like you I have only found pics with them carrying rocket pods and free fall bombs, I'm going with the theory that it's possible!

Thanks for all the comments, still plodding along with the stencils!

Su-25 and UB can carry Kh-25ML(6 pieces). But must be using an adapter APU-68-II than the rocket S-24. Not be used on racks 5 and 7.

Finally some time to post an update, I've managed to finish the rest of the decal stencils, not sure if they'll be strictly accurate for a Bulgarian airframe but I've just gone by the kit instructions.............

With the decals done I needed to tone everything done so went over areas with some Tamiya smoke and then a light thinned done covering of the base camo colour. After this was down I applied a flat coat using Alclads Flat Kote, still needs bits sorted where I've overcooked it a little but I'm happy how its turning out....

Thanks again for the comments and encouragement. Been a few days since any update so here's where I'm up to, basically adding the undercarriage, pylons and bits n bobs...............

The nose gear attached, I drilled out the slots in the mud guard although you cnt see it in this pic, also added couple of bits of detail to the leg itself.

Pylons on, still to add the sway braces.

Got the metal area around the cannon painted using Mr Metal Color and the front probes are attached.
