Su-25 Frogfoot design (1/100)

The inspiration for a new model already struck (actually there is another model never before seen in paper that i have begun designing as well and will hopefully share soon). I've been wanting a nice detailed frogfoot model for a few years now but finally sat down and drew it out—the model still doesnt have a canopy or anything but i am pleased with the shape of the fuselage and engines.

Nice! Can't wait to see the complete design and build.

Indeed, rarely can find the paper model for this one. I wanted to build one too.
Is the prototype in 1/100 scale? It looks smaller than I thought.

Oh no! Not another amazing design by PE! We have had so many, and I only have finished the Hawkeye! At least my printer is ready to go!

Looks like I know what I will be recoloring ASAP ( with your permission of course)

Note: I was not complaining just happy about yet another of your designs.

Just wondering PE what paint schemes are you planning for the frogfoot?

Great! I will certainly add it to my 1:144 to-build list, thank you

Thank you everyone! Glad to see there are others interested in this soviet warthog
@siph0n, feel free to make recolors and post them here if you want! I'm always happy to see what others do with my models. As far as my recolor plans, I will probably aim for doing the naval and two-seater variants and a handful of operating nations (ukraine, ussr/russia, azerbaijan, peru, maybe an african operator or two).

Ok, I’d like to do the Ukrainian digital, but it’s too difficult for me. Maybe renumbering and some minor camo variants…

Edit: you can call me Siphon, the only reason I use the 0 is because Siphon was already taken

And I’d be happy to do the minor African operators. As long as I don’t have to align camouflage…

Today i got to work on a couple different canopies and tails for the different frogfoot variants. I added a regular su25k canopy to the 1/200 prototype and made a second prototype in 1/100 as a su25t tank buster. Next up is panel lines, landing gear, and aerials and then i'll add color
