  1. Happy New Year and Welcome to a Happy New Build. This will be my first ever Helicopter so please be kind. I know nothing of this wonderful beast but as with all my other builds I expect to learn a whole lot over the space of the build. So Tonight Mathew I’m going to try and build the. Ka-27PL Helix Anti-Submarine warefare helicopter. It jumped out at me at the LMS on the bargains table a a quirky looking thing. Right up my street. I know our good friend @Martian Halehas started one of these but he (as we all expected) will be and has started adding all the bells and whistles that is only possible from a Red Planet dweller. I myself will be keeping my additions to a minimum to try and get my build count up this year. Others have finished this kit and it looks great but the WIPs are few and far between as are the ref pics of the interior but I’ll try my best to make it look as good as I can. Well then I’ll hope that you may want to follow along with this one and maybe chip in a few tod bits here and there as only the BritModeller Hive Mind can. Lets start with the all important box shot eh. We’ll make the rest up as we go along. Tis a thing of beauty or a blot on the sky scape either way it’s won my attention that’s for sure. The trees/ sprues are thus. The Big and clear bits. the little bits. The instructions, decals, phot etch and “shaft” ooh err missus! Construction so far is like a mini Ikea set. Lots of Billy and Malm to put together. the detail is lovely however. Attempting a dry fit some Filing was needed to allow for a good fit. and then we can start popping the internals together. looks really nice and busy. As I said earlier I’m not sure of the accuracy in there but I’m going to run with this one as is. Judging by the colour call outs I’m going to need all the help I can get. Academy seem to want this bit to be light blue. What on earth? some other colours and pointers would have been helpful. At least she looks the part in Schematic view. This is the one I’ll be aiming at by the way. Moving on with the dry fit the rest seems to fit well. Especially in this morning light. I’m looking forward to getting some paint on these. Whatever colours I choose. The seats look good but will need belts of some kind. And here’s the IP. all very nicest far. That’s it for now. I do hope you all are having a lovely New Year and thanks for popping in to have a look at my plastic shenanigans. All the best and as always dear friends. Happy Modelling. Johnny.
