Gluefinger Dead cheap for what you get; no major fit issues; sufficient level of detail without millions of parts; good choice of decals/finishing options; some minor quirks (open-ended rocket pods?). Turned out to be the perfect quick in-between project I hoped it would be.
Martien Lourens Very nice model and bases. The total image has a grand appearance. Not too much, not too little. A great beautiful piece of work.

Philip De Keyser Thanks Mates, I build this 3 yaers ago, I almost forgot him, I have a lot of fun to build this little guy, I like to make models where I don't have to spent a lot of money. The model is from Revell.
Maciej Bellos This one is a bit of a challenge but with a resin cockpit and seat it turns out pretty good.

Germen V Indeed, although i think it would be enouigh to buy a resin seat, cockpit detail is not so bad, only the seat is horrible.

Erik Leijdens I was already afraid of that mates since I'm building 2 ex-OEZ Sukhoi 7's.... Terrible kit too
21. May 2016 at 18:26:22
Melf Boyens Which 1:48 scale Frogfoot would you Consider to be the best available on the market, i mean as a Basic kit? There are SMER KITS out which are just Kopro repacks but dont they come from Same mould? Would be interesting to know als i want to buy one and build it with Digi camo Deals.

Erik Leijdens Hi Melf, the Kopro, KP, Smêr, Eduard are all reboxes from this one, tne OEZ kit. I know Monogram/Revell have a Frogfoot too and that's a complete different kit. Do not know which is best, think they both have their ups and downs.

Maciej Bellos I built is some 20+ years ago without any reference material back then. I'll upload some pics in a few days. The seat is rather crude, the cockpit might come out better with careful painting. I sure didn't do that good back then.
I don't know about other Su-25 kits in 48th.
21. May 2016 at 19:17:04
Melf Boyens In other words i Could buy SMER and have the Same kit at cheapest price and Could update with PE Parts
Scott Dutton Like the scratches on tanks etch, well done. Love the colours, whose did you use? I ask for upcoming Su-33

Selman Yarar Thank you, these are Akan colors a special set for this plane but i think you can use them for a Su-33 too. You can check www.hobbycolours.com for details. I bought them from this site. But there's also a special set for this plane. Please read carefully what i wrote above for dilution for airbrushing.

Scott Dutton Have some of their sets but not used yet. Thanks for advice
Selman Yarar Thank you, it's almost finished. Then i'll supply the photos and the building steps. It was not totally unproblematic. The kit is a short run one and i could observe almost all the disadvantages of such. Flash, uneven joint surfaces. But to my surprise all the parts could be installed without major problems and no major refining was needed. Some parts are very tiny and thin, thus very brittle but somehow i could manage not to break them. Two very tiny pieces i've lost i could easily build from scratch. The major problem was with the Akan paints in the airbrush. Akan colors are very easy to use with brushes but when it comes to airbrushing, i had to dilute with very much thinner. I used one time Lacquer Thinner from Tamiya and one time X20A but both resulted in coagulation and blocked the nozzle. The cleaning of the device was also difficult, the paint was hard to eliminate from the nozzle. I had to use excess amounts of LT. On the net i read that somebody recommended distilled water or Wimpex for dilution, next time i'll try these. Of course the result of the painting was a little coarse, but with a little sandpaper (2500) and a coat of gloss varnish (from testors) the problem was eliminated. Ah, before i forget, the Akan paint is not very resistent to Tamiya masking tape, i had many small spots where the paint stuck to the tape although i used a Gunze primer and waited at least one day to dry for both layers.
Alexander Perov Good day colleagues . before I assemble the model of a study prototype in the Internet .what I wanted to recommend to you .if only because interesting marks must be applied correctly because it's climbing right in the eye and spoils the perception of the model .I'm talking about inverted above the feet of the Russian flag .unless of course it is not done on purpose and you are not the first on this site

Christian Ristits Great Build, remember this was one of the most dangerous planes in the old PC-Game "Commanche 3"

Sören Mårtensson Alexander! Yes, i did notice that and the mistake is corrected... i'm sorry...
Alexander Perov Yes needless to apologize it happens with every Modeler.fix will not be easy .by the way, for information .this aircraft was suspended under the wing of special containers in one flew ground specialist for maintenance at the field in the second airfield and ground equipment later this idea was abandoned.
Melf Boyens I am a fan of brush paint, well done! How was the building, is the Revell kit nice? I am looking fo an 1:48 version, Revell does not have the Russian Decals, but that is a minor problem, is it recommendable kit?
Es-haq Khosravi Damn it! Revell kits have proper cockpit detail! But I can't figure it out why they want to hide it by moulding their canopies in one piece! Like for this kit?!!! Although I'm going to cut it in two separated pieces.
Jose Costa After carefull analysis, the mold on OEZ model seems to be the same used on the new Eduard model. All the lines are there, the same panel lines.
Gathering sevreal opinions on the net, it seems to be the best 1/48 mold on the market, whats you're opinion? Offcourse, OEZ lacks the PE, Resin, Decals and so on thats on the Eduard package.
