  1. Abandoned Project

    A companion for a Mi-26 Halo

    I have a Mil Mi-26 Halo which will be wearing Aeroflot colours in the stash and I have started to think about getting something fixed wing to use as a size comparison. Any ideas? Preferably something civvy as the Halo will be in civvy colours.
  2. Mil-8 HIP, VIP Transport ex Polish Air Force. Pics thanks to Rich Ellis.
  3. Mi-24F Hind-A. The Mil-24F is a Modified Hind-A with seven reinforcing ribs on the port fuselage aft of the wing, the IFF antenna relocated from the canopy to the oil cooler, and the APU exhaust was also extended and angled downwards. Pics taken at The Ukraine State Aviation Museum Zhulyany, Kiev. Pics thanks to Dave Haskell.
  4. My first build of 2018 is going to be the Amodel 1/72 Mil Mi-10 Harke. Here's the box top and contents: Pretty much standard Amodel fare: Fuselage in multiple parts that will be interesting to align, nice surface detail that I'll do well not to obliterate, no locating pins, and lots of flash. Should be fun! I have all the aftermarket I can find for it - a set of KV masks and some PE intended for an Mi-6. There's still one bit of aftermarket to decide on though - something to sling underneath - building an unloaded Mi-10 would be just plain wrong. There don't seem to be an awful lot of photos of operational Mi-10s out there - lots of photos of prototypes carrying things (particularly one of the prototypes carrying a bus at a Paris air show) but not much more than that. There are a few pointers out there on what some options could be though: A MiG-15: As Thud4444 noted in the chat thread, there's this photo of a Mi-10 which looks like it's just offloaded a MiG-15UTI: A truck or armoured personnel carrier: Seems obvious that the Mi-10 would have carried these sorts of things around and Yefim Gordon's book "Mil's Heavylift Helicopters" refers to crews in East Germany practicing with these kinds of loads. Then there's the Mi-10RVK with the Zil-135V missile launcher (which would have to be scratch-built): Or the Mi-10PP with this big ECM device underneath: Then there's the Mi-10GR which carried a Grebeshok ELINT device underneath, but I can't find any remotely useful photos of it. There's also mention online of a Mi-10 airlifting a woolly mammoth encased in ice - but of course I can't find any photos (there's a video on youtube of a Mi-26 carrying one though). Right now, the MiG-15 is the frontrunner - I like the look of the missile launcher, but don't think I'll have time to scratch build it. So I think I'm going to order an Eduard MiG-15UTI. Can't wait to get cracking tomorrow!

  10. Mil-1 Hare, pics thanks to Rich Ellis, at the Helicopter Museum, Weston-Super-Mare. Mil Mi-1 "Hare", 2007, C/N. 5112007. The Museum example is a Polish built SM-1 variant, completed by PZL-Swidnik, Poland in February 1959 and delivered to the Polish Air Force. Used primarily for pilot training from 1962 until the late 1980s, the aircraft was then grounded and used for ground instruction. The final log book entry is dated 29th November 1990. Purchased by the Museum in 1992 it was delivered by road in 1993. It is restored in Soviet markings as an example of the first Russian production helicopter.Info from the Helicopter Museum

  13. Detail pics of the Hind D at The Helicopter Museum in Weston-Super-Mare. Pics mine. Pics thanks to Rich Ellis. Mil Mi-24D "Hind", 96+26/421, C/N. 230270110073. Built in 1981 as a ground attack/assault helicopter and powered by two Klimov TV-3-117 turboshaft engines. The Hind in the Museum collection is a Mi-24D variant, some 350 of which were built at factories in Arsenyev and Rostov-on-Don. Armament includes a 12.7 mm four barrel 9-A 624 machine gun, four Falanga anti-tank missiles and 80 rockets in four under wing pods. First flown on 2nd April 1981 it was delivered to the East German Army based at Basephol, North of Berlin. In early 1992 it was decided to disband the Hind squadrons and its last flight was on 24th February 1992. The German Government allocated it to the Helicopter Museum and a team went to Basephol in early 1995 to dismantle and transport it to the United Kingdom. It was delivered to the Museum on 20th February 1995 with assistance from Bristow Helicopters.Info from The Helicopter Museum
  14. Mil Mi-6 (NATO reporting name Hook), Pics taken at The Ukraine State Aviation Museum Zhulyany, Kiev. Pics thanks to Dave Haskell.
  15. My son bought me this kit for my birthday, he reckons I need something different in my cabinet. I have never built a Tamiya kit nor a Russian Helicopter. Something I can't figure out is why Tamiya re-box Italeri kits. Is Tamiya a crap kit manufacturer??? The only part of this kit made in Japan is the box. No English in the instructions and I am sure the colour call outs are wrong, I will work it out....... Box art. Sprues Decals Thanks for looking. Stephen

  21. In no real order other than by aircraft type kinda... my 2015 with a little bit of 2016 thrown in, but will note by the 2016 photos! It's been a good year I must admit, and I've only been abroad once to Switzerland 'spotting' for the day.... All Russian/Soviet/Ukrainian/Eastern European types as these are my all time favourite.... Hope they are of interest! and two from tonight (07/01/16) taken at East Midlands...
  22. 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.
