Hard kit to complete but your knowledge about plastic make this build move!

Progress update...

Worked on adding external photoetch and resin details to the model.

Here you can see I decided to cut down the surface for the photoetch canon access panel. I think just gluing it to the original skin would add too much of a step and be pretty obvious when I go to add washes later.
[20170113_0015_zps84b1c5tb] 
Back near the engines comes some photoetch details. I had to cut a slot in both sides of the fuselage to fit the panels next to each engine exhaust. Not sure if I sanded off too much to get the engine pylons on or if the photoetch was too big, but made it work.
[20170113_0018_zpskmnut9qh] 
For the front canopy I cut a piece of .030" thick clear styrene to make the armored glass on the windshield. This should also make the photoetch supports that come up from the instrument panel actually meet up to something. I tried a few different times to get the two parts joined with PVA and Future (Johnson's Floor Care). Both times had nasty looking glue seams visible between the two, but I think with some delicate placement I will eventually get it right. At least I can just throw some alcohol on it and try again when it doesn't work. I really need to get this installed soon, since I accidentally smooshed some of the cockpit photoetch the other day.
[20170118_0006_zpsoxuibdha] 
I cut and attached the front camera window, again made from a sheet of clear styrene. In this case, the edges don't need to be perfect as the window will be smaller than the fill sheet of clear here. I tacked it down with a little bit of Micro Krystal Klear around the inside edge of the opening. Once the PVA was set, I used Tamiya Extra Thin to solidly glue it in place and added some liquid styrene filler around the edged to help with blending when I break out the sanding sticks.
[20170121_0003_zpshg1seflr] 
So here is where we are at today.

Unfortunately, life outside the hobby caught up with this Group Build and I am off on a 2 week business trip tomorrow. So, alas, I will not get this done in time. As I continue work I'll still make updates though. Not sure if the thread gets locked down after the GB is over. If so, I will start a new thread in an appropriate area of the forum.

My hat's off to all those who finished, great work out there!

Life gets in the way! Bummer. I believe that I am right to say that the build threads are left open.

Yeah, usually they kept open for everyone to finish. Of course it's a pity that you can't finish in time but I'll keep following future progress :-)

Finally got a little time to keep working this project, but also have a few others on-going too, so not a lot of progress. 

I realized the kit does not include a small nose camera (I'm guessing that is what it is) between the air data probes. I decided to try to add this detail by cutting open a section of the nose and shaping some styrene.

Next I am working to add the additional flare dispensers above each engine exhaust which are present on the Ukrainian Su-25s, but not part of the kit.

I decided to purchase a few more accessories for my kit. I didn't like the accuracy and level of detail for the weapon pylons and the photoetch gear doors from the Eduard set seem a little complicated and potentially a hassle, so I purchase these aftermarket accessories. I also purchased a second photo etch set to help with creating my additional flare dispensers. Expensive buy to use just two parts, so if anyone wants a photoetch set minus the flares, I would be willing to ship it.

[20170405_0002_s_zps5ftf2kua] 

I also worked on adding the engine mounted flare buckets. I damaged one of the photoetch details trying to get it separated. The Eduard set is designed to represent the aft buckets, which are right next to each other. Splitting the two was made difficult by the thicker piece of metal joining the two. In the end, I think it turned out okay.

Off on more travel...hopefully I can squeeze more work in between trips.
