1/48 - Mil Mi-17 (Mi-8MT) Hip - by Annetra

Recommended Posts

I wonder if that is the one being referred to. Thanks for the hint. That is one of the languages I do speak and read.

I am sure at the E Day in Prague in a week or two time there will be an Annetra stand and the owner will have some news, some fresh CAD photos. 

I will not be there, but sure we will hear of any developments.

 

I also look forward to this kit.

 

Best regards

As far as I know Annetra did not have a stand but was represented by HGW at the show. I was not there so we would need to ask someone who visited E Day and has some info on this.

 

Best regards

I was at their stand but there was nothing Hip-related there!

Thanks Pollie for commenting. It is good to have a first-hand account from the E Day.

 

Annetra is in a difficult situation. In the past I have spoken several times with the owner and had the feeling that he is a real enthusiast and loves his subjects and what is more important willing to work for it!  In this case he is in a difficult situation since he has to rely on another companies development work which has his own work/problems to do.

A year ago the future was much brighter with some fantastic plans from Annetra.

 

Hope that this is not the end!

 

Best regards

Gabor

Guys, give them a break. The latest info in Czech is from mid September: "Mi-17 is being worked upon, but unfortunately it will  be delayed. I can't tell you exact release date at the moment." This hardly changed during the three weeks that passed.

I seem to recall reading that Annetra were possibly working with AMK on this one, they would seem to be a bit busy at the moment with Tomcats & MiG-25's to name just 2. Hopefully if this is the case then the Hip will work its way up the list eventuall/

My information from a friend who attended the recent Eday 2016 at Prague is, that AMK is currently spending all the manpower in the F-14 project to press it for release before Christmas. The information came directly from the owner of Annetra. So, the Mi-17 obviously is delayed, not cancelled!

I still have a few hundred kits in my stash to keep me busy until the Mill is ready, so I'm OK for the tie being. I think I can make it that long LOL:D

Mr. Jareš from Annetra posted this at modelforum.cz (translated from Czech):

 

"According to Sio's promise, Mi-17 will be next after F-14."

About two weeks ago on Facebook Tanmodel was considering making a 1/48 Hind but then the owner Baris Tansoy asked Martin from AMK about their plans and the answer was "after the F-14 comes the Mi-8/17 and later the Mi-24". 

 

We may never see them, judging by the protracted AMK "let us cater to every customers whim" production process, but at least we'll see a new 1/48 Su-25 by Tanmodel.

Was intrigued by this as I was recently asked to do a Hip by my son.  Have the 1/35 Trumpeter, but thought it too big.  Has nothing new come out for a 1/48 kit in plastic?  My research based on this thread and others (scalemates, too) led me to a resin kit that was IVO USD$200.  I'm sure it's great, but for that kind of money, I can just get another 1/35 Trumpeter kit and whatever detail bits I care to put on it.

Is the vapourware F-14 out or not? Only then can we expect some credible answers. In the mean time, it's only luck for my wallet that that 150Eur resin kit has the wrong fuel tanks for the Croatian version.
