[Kit Review] - Academy 1/144 - Su-25 Frogfoot -
Kit which ive had I'm stash for over a year and reckon its about time it was built. Think this is the only Su-25 available in the scale and luckly its a fairly decent kit.
Been doing some research on her and there is a lot of choice when it comes to paint schemes, like alot of the soviet era jet they where sold to alot of country's with so many different marking to choose from. Probably go with the red star
Fairly fine sprues with nice amount of detail, all the main panel lines are present with a few needed to be added and most of the shape looks correct.
Decals are simple like all soviet jets, go quite a few red star decals in my stash so should be able to pick a scheme i like.
Most of the detail present, a new panel line along the wing needs to be added i think and maybe replace the air-brakes at the end which are not quite the right shape.
All looks correct with the panel lines except some small access panels which are missing.
Paint schemes for the same bird as the box art, haven't found a scheme that ive wanted to model yet but notice that nearly all these Frogfoot's have camouflage patterns, must be because there ground attack jets.
Except for a whole new cockpit can't see this being difficult to build.
