     The rather rare OEZ Su-25K. It is believed that all OEZ mouldings were subsequently reboxed by Kopro. This item came my way via a neighbour who practically gave it to me. The OEZ boxing is rather sad with quite a poor rendering of an interesting aircraft. This is one I always wanted to build so, although not high on the shopping list, I could not avoid it for free. This was one of two OEZ kits I acquired this way (the other being their Su-7) and it looks as if these are fourth or fifth-hand. They were originally owned by someone in the Czech Republic and no doubt found their way to the UK via EBay. My neighbour picked them up at his local modelling club.

Aftermarket Extras

48-001 1/48th scale Eduard BIG ED set for Su-25K Pavla Resin Cockpit for "Suchoj" Su-25 Part' Su-25K photoetch set S48-042
An unusual acquisition from EBay - "48-001" - probably the first 1/48th scale Eduard photo-etch set and it was for (yes!) the OEZ Su-25K. It will be interesting to compare this to the "Kopro" Version pictured right. Here is the modern version of Eduard's photo-etch sets - the BIG ED set for Su-25K that will probably include the set shown left, although it is has since been renumbered and is now for the Kopro/KP Kit. Is it the same...? The Pavla Resin Cockpit for "Suchoj" Su-25 for OEZ (set 48002). The 'Part' Su-25K photoetch set S48-042 which I purchased from Roll Models in the USA.
  Eduard Brassin 648 054 Su-25K wing pylons Aerobonus 480 032 FAB-250M54 Soviet Bombs Eduard Brassin 648 025 Rocket Launcher UB-16 and UB-32 Eduard Brassin 648 127 OFAB-250 Soviet Bombs
Eduard Brassin 648 054 Su-25K wing pylons. Aerobonus_480_032_FAB-250M54_Soviet_Bombs. We also may have some spare OFAB-11's from Eduard Brassin used on the S-22 project. Eduard Brassin 648 025 Rocket Launcher UB-16 and UB-3 - these are destined for the Su-22 and Su-7 projects but we might have something left-over. Eduard Brassin 648 127 OFAB-250 Soviet Bombs. interesting to compare these to the Aerobonus equivalents - they do look a bit different! These might get used on the Su-7 Project.
Armory Su-25 Frogfoot resin wheel set AR AW48014 Armory ARMA4817 Su-25 Frogfoot Pitots Armory ARMA4817 Su-25 Frogfoot Pitots Quickboost QB48126 Su-25K Air Scoops
Armory Su-25 Frogfoot resin wheel set AR AW48014 purchased January 2014. Armory ARMA4817 Su-25 Frogfoot Pitots added May 2015. Armory ARMA4817 Su-25 Frogfoot Pitots added May 2015. Surprisingly stupid packaging - to sellotape fragile metal parts to a piece of cardboard and stick it in a plastic bag. It is all bent. Quickboost QB48126 Su-25K Air Scoops added May 2015.
Scale Resin Su-25K Interior and Avionics Scale Resin Su-25K Interior and Avionics Scale Resin Su-25K Interior and Avionics Scale Resin Su-25K Interior and Avionics
Scale Resin Su-25K Interior and Avionics added May 2015. Scale Resin Su-25K Interior and Avionics comes in a stout box with plenty of bubble wrap. (Armory take note!) Scale Resin Su-25K Interior and Avionics - this is a beuatiful set covering cockpit and avionics bays for the Kopro kit. Scale Resin Su-25K Interior and Avionics - very busy instructions cover the colour-photoetch, vacformed canopy and resin items.
Scale Resin Su-25K Interior and Avionics Scale Resin Su-25K Interior and Avionics Master AM-48-124 Su-25 Frogfoot Pitots Quickboost QB48725 Su-25K Frogfoot Undercarriage Covers
Scale Resin Su-25K Interior and Avionics - colour photoetch for the cockpit is just gorgeous. Scale Resin Su-25K Interior and Avionics - resin items are exquisite - probably the finest detail I have ever seen in resin. State of the art. Master AM-48-124 Su-25 Frogfoot Pitots purchased from Hannants in June 2016. Compare these to the Armory set purchased last year. These are better packaged so might be better. I will now have a spare. Quickboost QB48725 Su-25K Frogfoot Undercarriage Covers purchased from Hannants in November 2016.
