Sukhoi Su-25 Frogfoot A, Trumpeter 1/32

Thanks all for following this!

 

 

 

I got a minor step in the rear of the left wing root, I filled it with small pieces of plasticard and sanded to shape, simple and effective!

The tailplanes glued in place and all seams checked, of course there´s a lot to fix….

Not least on the belly….

I also primed all of the doors, hatches, weapons  and tanks when I had paint in the cup….

I filled all of those small ghost seams with CA-glue and then sanding commenced, s LOT sanding….

Hi All!

 

The inner pylons on the wings glued in place, the outermost are still waiting…

The whole aircraft primed Black (Alclad Black Microfiller) and finally I´m satisfied with sthe seams!

The wheel bays painted with British Interior Green (Hu.78)  as Trumpy suggested and I had no better suggestions myself, so that will do.

 

Looks OK to me….

The landing gears painted Aircraft Grey (Hu.196) and glued in place….

The large front doors are always closed while the aircraft is on the ground, but Trumpy designed them to be open on the model!

 

The right hand door fitted OK, only a small gap to fill, but the left door was 2.5mm too small!

Luckily, I happend to have a pack of evergreen strips of the correct width at home!

 

…and as tradition on this kit, some sanding of the doors to get all to blend in….

…finally on her own, very sturdy legs!

Next Frogfoot! I love this plane.
Remove air intakes from the nozzles. These are only on the BM version with the R-195 engines and has another rudder.
