1/32 Su-25 Details and Corrections

Recommended Posts

PD-62-8 Pylons are now available!

If these sell well I will be doing some other improvements/corrections for the kit.

For some reason Trumpeter didn't include the outer wing pylons.

They show them on the box art.

They have holes in the wing where they should attach.

Because the Su-25 usually carries these pylons and they usually have the APU-60-1 launch rail (which I recently released) and they often carry the Aphid missile (which is in my product line) I decided it might be a good idea if I made the missing pylons...

PD-62-8 pylons:

Details on the underside in case you want to mount them empty:

The rear acts as a cover for the aileron actuator:

I've included the actuator (also not included in the Trump kit) in its' full length in case you want to position the ailerons. The part can be trimmed accordingly.

I will be enhancing a few details on the pattern before making production molds.

I'm hoping to have it ready to release in just a few days.

Great work so far Chris!

Watching APU-60 and Aphid attached really is tickling my modeling vanity. :P

Cheers and happy modeling!

Alexander.

Great job, Chris! I'm glad you decided to make the missing pylons. I'll definitely be in for a full set as soon as they are released.

Great looking model John! :worship:

No lists. I'll announce here when they are released then send out an e-mail a few days later.

Well I finally finished the necessary enhancements to the pattern and hoped to have the first (of a pair) of production molds poured already.

Unfortunately (? :P ) I've received a bunch of orders for existing product the last few days and have been too busy casting to do the new molds yet or start the instructions.

That's the nature of being a one man band in the aftermarket business. It can be a feast or famine roller coaster so predicting scheduled releases can be a challenge.

Soon...

:cheers:

HI Lothar yes it is the same one. I still have not seen another built yet!!

Great looking model John! :thumbsup:

Thank you Chris I know what you mean about being a one man band, it is sometimes difficult balancing all the tasks.

Cheers for now

Thanks again,

HI Chris

I have posted these before but for this thread here you are. The pylons launch rails and missiles all now adorn my SU-25. I have to say that these products are really top notch and worth every penny. I have also made a couple of other corrections like the odd rod IFF and the pitot tube vanes. Hope that she does the updates justice.

The dispensers are physically in the kit, although listed as not used.
Yes, they are included but the way they chose to mold them, in two halves, makes them almost unusable. Effectively filling that seam between the raised, round dispenser tubes would be almost impossible.

So, yes, they are on "the list" but there are a few major corrections for the kit that are higher on the list.

Unfortunately, as mentioned in several threads, I don't have the time or hands to tackle these projects in the near future. Too much on my plate...

Su-39 conversion for the Su-25UB maybe ?

Nothing much needed, just another tail boom and I wonder if the nose and under front fuselage isn't a bit different

Any more Zactogoodies for this in the pipeline..?
There are a couple more items on my 'list', but nothing in the near future as I already have too much on my plate. So don't hesitate to build it if you want.
