  1. That's a nice build of an ol and not so easy kit, Josef!
    I love the Su-25.
    Nice painting and decalling!

  2. I have one these on the shelf of doom. Curious as to how you did the intakes and fixed those nasty interior seams? Is there an easy fix other than the painful obvious way (sanding/filling in a tiny cramped space)?

  3. If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck it therefore, is. To the casual modeler its good enough for government work. The Fan Boy will cry but, if you had fun and had a good experience in making the kit then why not. Sometimes beating the kit or finishing it is reward enough in being the last man standing too.

    Two thumbs up Josef.

  4. Although you had a hard time on this build, you finished it very nicely, Josef.
    I do love the camouflage pattern, great paintwork.

  5. I wonder if Northrop ever considered suing Sukhoi for copyright infringement of the YA-9A?

    You managed to successfully hide all the mistakes very well indeed. Looks good.

  6. Top job on a very average kit.

    Great job on this kit Josef, your work on the intakes gives this model a big plus.
    Very nice camouflage scheme.

  8. That's a ferocious looking Su-25 and very interesting to see in such unusual national markings. We should do a Group Build on small air forces here sometime. It looks like you have gotten the best out of this older kit. Great paint work on the camo. I have heard that the Kopro kit is actually more accurate in outline than the Revell version, which is based on a prototype without access to a production example. In that case, it actually builds up quite authentically.

  9. Looks great! Love the paint work.
