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!
Hello! This is the 1/72 Heller kit and i tried to give this oldie a go. I rescribbed it and chopped the flaps to give it a little rupture around the wing shape area, and also cutted the canopy and done the interior. It was painted with vallejo acrilycs. The Magister with it's distinctive tail always looked odd to me but after this one I will try one in 48 for sure. This machine was based upon on a scheme of the Berlin Gatow Magister and the whole point was to get the worn out look and the hi vis orange. Your comments are welcome!
Time for my first build here on Brit modeller, I've gone for a Su-17M2 by mistercraft (formerly master craft). he kit is supplied on five sprues of decent flash free plastic. Included in the kit are drop tanks, rockets,bombs and a reconnaissance pod (although the M2 rarely carried them). To helm the kits overall look I've ordered myself some resin pilots as the kit doesn't have one :(. I'll also be borrowing some bombs etc from the spares box.
I am about to begin a 1/72nd scale Yak-18 on skis from AModel. So far the kit looks typical of older AModel kits with heavy, soft sprue, and a fair amount of flash. A pre-fitting lest shows the distinctive 5-cyclinder cowling will not fit flush without some filling and plastic. Other than that it looks to be straightforward build of an interesting bird used primary for training purposes. I'll be building it OOB except for the repair work I'll need to do. Anyone build one of these? Any tips if you have?
