Sukhoi to the sky - flaky Frogfoot part 3

My Su-25 is now finished so here it is on a training flight in the garden.  It is perched atop a 3-foot length of stiff wire.

Predictably I was not alone for long, though Zoe was far more interested in her ball than the Frogfoot.
Coincidentally, I see that a more effective means of air defence, the Russian SAM  S-400  SA-21 goes by the NATO reporting name of Growler...

She turned out nicely Tim, great job. I really like the striped camo.
Never work with kids or dogs they'll outshine you every time.

I do like the striking camo on that aircraft. Very pretty! One of the reasons I have never used our back lawn is that we had a dog. Not a very well trained dog...

Looks great in the open air Tim- a wonderful uprgade to the WP forces.

Cheers,

Pete.

This is why I can't do lawn games at home!

Dogs and toys can be a dodgy mix. In fairness to Zoe she only ever (so far!) lightly chewed a single Britains Herald guardsman.

Come and 'fly' it yourself in a game soon!

With pleasure Tim- I'm long overdue a trip down to see you all at the new club.

Cheers,

Pete.
