SU-25m1 Digital Grach

Recommended Posts

Hello to all, I can finally present you my last work: it's a Su-25m1 in force with the Ukrainian aeronautics in 1/32 scale Trumpeter kit.
We found a really grueling job for a lot of reasons, the Trumpeter kits are always revealed for what they are: toys designed by people who saw the real aircraft only on photos found on the net. Without dwelling on the dimensions (they are not one of those that compare the scale drawings to verify the truthfulness) and on the details sketched or completely missing, the real problems are in the joints and in the brain-splitting decomposition of the kit; a clarifying example are the gondolas that house the engines and the very long air ducts divided into two parts that leave a line in the middle that has been eliminated.
The changes have been innumerable and in each area of the aircraft, the wpp monograph on the Su-25 has been fundamental in trying to reproduce the details that the manufacturer has omitted. To make this operation easier, I have also given background to everything that the market offers in the form of aftermarket.
For the coloring I used the dedicated set of the Russian firm Akan with self-produced masks with the cutting plotter.
The decals are a mix of the dedicated set of Foxbot (completely wrong, I think they are about 1/25 scale ...), of the Trumpeter decals and something cannibalized by the sets dedicated to the Su-27 and Mig-29 of Begemot, especially for armaments.
It took nine months of hard work.
Here are the pictures:

Superb work. I love the weathering, it is so effective and credible when it is done subtly. 

I have the Foxbot decals and I am a bit worried to read about the dimension errors. I got to check them.

Bravissimo!

 

A very close friend built one with all the possible sets as well and confirmed what you wrote: the kit is a true dog to assemble because of an insane design...
