Nice choice Steve. I fell for the Mi-4 when I saw one in a museum a couple of years ago and I’ve been thinking about getting this kit ever since, so will be following

Love the look of this helicopter Steve and not having built one I'm really keen to see how you get on with it.

Thank's Guy's looking forward to this one too especially as I've never built one.

Two scheme's Glynn,Russian and Chinese included,I'm a big fan of HB's Helicopter's I really should build a few more that said the Boeing Vertol was

a poor kit with regard's the front glazing I binned it,the Hip and Hoplite are superb looking kit's think I might order them soon.

Be careful with the Hip's Steve.

As they come they can only be built as Mi-17's not Mi-8's, pay no attention to what the box tells you as the contents of both kits are identical, nice Mi-17's but definitely NOT Mi-8's. At least what we in the West call Mi-17's, the Russians call them all Mi-8's and vary the model, anything after the Mi-8 MT is what we call an Mi-17.

I've been so tempted by this kit, but the interior needs a lot of work if you are going to open it up to show it's full splendour (& hugeness).  :unsure:

 

Look forward to see what you do with it, fear it might end up costing me quite lot of money!  ;)

Thank's Sarge,I can't find a lot of interior photo's of the Mi-4,they seem tobe finished in light gray rather than the light blue/green I had assumed.

Eduard used do three sets for this kit but the interior set (at least) is discontinued, the instructions shows how the interior should look:
