Good morning BritModeller and welcome to my next build. I don’t know why but this kit screamed at me to be bought and built. This will be my second Zvezda kit and slightly larger that my first, those who followed my last multi build will know what I mean. I saw many reviews of the kit ( even the flory one ) and found that most thought it to be disappointing, an upscale version of the 1/72 kit. I almost went for the smaller version but as I could get this kit for pretty much the same price and the fact I love an under dog I made my choice. The kit itself looks awesome and I needed no help in loving this helecopter as it’s been a favourite of mine since the “Metal gear solid” game on PS1. There’s are a lot of choices to be made before starting this model which I will go through during this post. I’m going to try and go for accuracy but I always tend to lean for what looks cool and what makes me happy. My previous “multi build” showed that my focus is better, you know focused. So I’m looking forward to concentrating on just one build. I can hear @corsaircorp screaming at me now. I’m still not 100% sure which one I’m building but I’m 99% convinced it’s the scheme that’s on the front of the box because I’m a whore for a pretty picture. The one thing I am sure of is my addition of rivets!!! Hence the title of the thread. Any way let me begin by laying out my stall. I have a well earned week off so fingers crossed for a bench time bonanza. Please join me with this build, I love to have you all along for the ride filling in my knowledge base as I go and giving much needed moral support. so without further ado. The Mi-24v “Hind” by Zvezda 1/48 Still here? Cool. I found this on YouTube and have no permission or affiliation with the creator but I thought it was a great view on the subject matter. Here is how the state of play is on day one. This is where the magic happens. The box itself is huge with some lovely art work depicting the model I will make. (I think) Here is the scheme I’m aiming for. Although these ones look great too. I shall post up this intro now so I don’t lose it. And post up some more later on. I hope you will enjoy this build as much as I hope I will building it. Take care and as always dear chums. Happy Modelling. Johnny.
