Nice. That's a subject I've been thinking of building, and the current crop of models (in my preferred scale at least) did leave some to be desired...

This is mega cool!

I always wanted these guys to make something that I could be interested in, Rook is definitely a must buy for me

FINALLYYYYYYYYYYY 

I always expected trumpeter or modelsvit to fill this gaping hole but clearpop model is evidently on a mission plugging gaps . Will be pricey no doubt but will make an exception for this one . This model is a dream weathering  project. 

Won't surprise me if they deliver a Mig-23 next , we have no quality model of that type either except that hideously difficult RV kit .

Excellent - about time we had an accurate rendering of this aircraft! Let's hope Clearprop can carry this one across the goal line.

I bought a Revell kit some 25 years ago, it was quite nice, really good surface detail, lots of stores. It must have been a reboxing I guess, but apparently it's not all that accurate? Good to see someone stepping in on this then.

Having (just about) beaten an Art Model Su-25K into submission, I hope Clear Prop come through with this one!

£35 it maybe, but to some of us it's £35 well spent. I have to play devil's advocate and fight the manufacturer's corner on this one. We must remember that Clearprop's products are short run mixed media kits and like any producer, they need to make a good profit margin to justify producing more of the kits that we all want - like the Su-25.

 

In contrast I've also got an old Eastern Express Gloster Pioneer that I picked up for £9.50 at Gloucester Air Museum (appropraitely) and that's not worth even that much compared to the Clearprop version, it really does show that you get what you pay for. If you want a product of its time, a few bits of plastic and enough detail that it looks alright when viewed from over a mile away then buy the Eastern Express/Frog product. If you want a product of 2019 with etched and resin bits as part of the package, extreme detail packed into what truly is a tiny package and a beautiful rendition of a groundbreaking plane, buy the Clearprop.

 

Unfortunately the Su-25 doesn't fit any of my modelling interests but I might have to get one just to add what will be a very worthwhile model to my stash; I can always What-If it as an East German Air Force one :)

Clearprop kits aside from Gloster E28 are state if the art full mainstream kits made from high quality steel molds.

There are plenty of kits today that have same quality of injection molding+there is nothing inherently revolutionary in their current quality of toolings to warrant such prices.

Market will decide, but from my perspective 25€ for 1/72 Claude, 50€+ for Seasprite or Su-25 is beyond reason.

Do you have the Claude? It is an amazing package. For 27 euros you get not only a state of the art kit which is as good as anything Tamiya or Eduard produce these days, but also a full resin engine consisting of 33 parts, a photo-etch sheet for small detailing, brass pitot and gunsight, canopy and landing light masks and a film to replicate the instrument panel dials.

 

Have a look at what you pay for a 72nd scale WWII fighter kit these days, even 'simple' kits from Airfix are in the 10-12 quid range and short run kits are usually around 15 or 20, easily. Tamiya and Hasegawa even more.

 

All those kits don't give you any of the extras that Clear Prop provides as standard, and they would cost you a lot more if you got them as aftermarket. And if you want to save some cash, go for the non-expert version, which still includes the etch and the panel film, it's 19 euros.

 

A lot of money =/ expensive.

Was it this one? I have it as well. Apparently it's originally from Ace Hobby (1988). This was the second re-boxing by Revell, with similar artwork to the first, just different presentation.

I have the KP kit as well: The original boxing released by KP in 1989 (and by the world and his wife since then).

Yes I have, and i was not even referring to the( Early )Expert kit, Advanced ( Late ) Claude from Clearprop costs 22 euros, compared to 17,90 for Eduards MiG-21 and 14,90 for Spitfires,

both are comparable technology wise,and even to Spitfire,Claude is a diminutive kit.

If someone thinks that paying 50+ euros for Su-25 is reasonable, fair enough, I will state again my subjective opinion that is ludicrous.

I have tried to cobble up a decent Frogfoot from just about every 1/72 kit out there, even the horrid old Hobbycraft one, and none of them measures up to the old OEZ 1/48 kit, which I built out of desperation, so I've already spent a potfull of money on this lost cause. I'm willing to believe that the Clear Prop kit will be the definitive Su-25 in 1/72 scale, and therefore I will buy it gladly, say whatever you like about the price!!! (Although if the price was low, I might buy two of them...)

But maybe no need was built  a decent Frogfoot, maybe

of those models that were, it was easier to build:

Where did you find price for Su-25? Why 50€? Why not 150€ or 15€?

50 euros is just your guess. And talk about the price of 50 euros and resent just ridiculous. Nobody knows the price of a model. Even the manufacturer.

Hi Dmitry, my Ukranian source which was never wrong, cited same price for Seasprite and Su-25, as 50+ euros range,depending on the boxing, I will be more than happy to be proven wrong.

As for the model itself, I have no doubt that it will be superlative..

Wow.  I know that a 3D render isn't the same as getting one's hands on the plastic but that looks REALLY nice!  

 

Everyone has their own price point but that does look to me like an accurate and complete package
