  3. I'm going to build a Soviet Mi-8 helicopter, as one during the 80s. But I'm not sure what correct shade of green it be in. I'm hoping to make it like how they were used at Chernobyl. If anyone can give me so correct colours that would be great!

  7. After a great deal of thinking about which of my (many) Soviet aircraft to build for this GB I decided to do something a little smaller than my current project, ICM's Mig-25, I have finally settled on Hobby Boss' Mil Mi-8. As the topic says you cannot build a straight Mi-8 T from the box despite what Hobby Boss say, you can build an Mi-8 MT/Mi-17 and the kit is nicely detailed and accurate for such, just not a straight Mi-8. The problem lies with the engine housing on the top of the fuselage, as that (as well as the tail rotor location) is the main difference between the 2, fortunately Pavla make a correction set so i will be using one of these. Here is the ubiquitous box top shot. And the contents. And the Pavla correction set. And a nice decal sheet from Begemot. And the scheme I have chosen. The black and white picture doesn't quite do it justice so here's a picture of one in the same scheme, sunglasses at the ready! I plan to do her on a similar small diorama, snow too! Well at least it's smaller than the Foxbat! Thanks for looking in. Craig.
  8. NeOmega is to release a 1/72nd Mil Mi-8 AMTSh/Mi-17V-5 "Hip-H" resin conversion set for the Hobby Boss (ref.87208) or Zvezda (ref.7230) Mi-8/Mi-17 kits - ref?. Source: http://scalemodels.ru/news/8542-konversija-mi-8amtsh-v-masshtabe-1-72-ot-neomegi.html V.P.

  10. Hi I have posted some NATO QRA pictures and some visiting Warthogs from my recent Centre of Aviation Photography assignment to Šiaulia, but I thought you might like to see some of the Lithuanian assets and vehicles as well as some monochrome Hungarian Gripens..... Thanks for looking.
  11. Firstly, MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL!!! OK, now that that is done, I can tell a little backstory. Two years ago my brother, who is now four, got a fire brigade toy set for his birthday. It included a jeep, a truck, some other stuff and, most importantly, a helicopter which I recognized a a Mi-8. Some time later I looked over it in detail and thought how unusually detailed and accurate it was for a '3+' toy. So when the main rotor broke off and my brother left it on a shelf, I seized my opportunity and took the helicopter+rotor. My idea - improve as much of the helicopter as I can, scratchbuild an interior, repaint, possible cut out the clamshell doors and pose the open. I have discovered a review/build article of the Hobby Boss 1:72 Mi-8: http://www.flankers-site.co.uk/modl_mi-8.html This not only contains wonderful information and pictures of the interior, but has also helped me identify my Mi-8 as a Mi-8T. The parts breakdown of this thing is very similar to ordinary plastic models - fuselage in two halves, transparent glazing part, a separate cockpit and several other parts like gear, rotors etc. Here are a few photos of what it looked like before I started: As you can see, the the detail is quite good, though slightly exaggerated. Having removed one screw and battled with the rest of it for ten minutes I braved the horrible snowstorm and went over to the garage, or rather the guest area above it, where I keep my modeling stuff. With the help of a screwdriver, a knife and some fairy dust I manage to take apart everything except for the tail rotor and the side window glazing parts which are stubbornly attached to the fuselage halves, the tail rotor with a tiny nail (!!!) and the window parts with some sort of super-strong glue which seems to have melted the transparencies to the fuselage parts. That will be fun to deal with. Here is what everything looks for after the disassembly process: The cockpit part is rather simple by scale model standards, but incredible for a toy. The seats and bulkhead (+door!) are there, and even the Mi-8's strange instrument panels are accurately shown!!! With a bit of paint that part will look amazing! Sorry for the horrible photos, the iPhone camera is made more for epic panoramas than tiny helicopter parts. And another thing: The snowstorm I mentioned is getting scary, of course nothing as bad as what happened in upstate New York recently, but still. There was no snow at all for the whole of December here in Moscow, and now it has snowed 50 centimeters in the last two hours. The following photo was taken 40 minutes ago. There was no snow on the ground this morning when I woke up. If I do not post before this time tomorrow, the roof has probably collapsed under the weight of all that snow and I am having a very merry christmas trapped under the rubble and freezing to death.
