Mi-24D "520" from KHG-3, NVA 1990

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

this was a very special build for me, as it was a present for my dad.

He was a pilot from 1980 till the end of the German Democratic Republic and flew first on Mi-8 and then on Mi-24.

The Airframe depicted is the one from his very last Flight on September 20th 1990.

Here's a photo of the original

The Build:

[WIP can be found here]

I used the Hobbyboss 1/72 Mi-24V kit along with the Italeri Mi-24D kit (Parts used from Italeri: Pitot tube and Decals)

Also used some Tom's Decals for NVA Insignia and Stencils

The Base is made from Plastic sheet on a wooden board and some grass mat

here are the pictures:

A very nice "Hind" (BTW: How did the crews call it in the old DDR?). I also like the display base. A base always adds a lot to a model.

Congratulations Konrad, you’re done her very accurate and with a diorama base she’s looks brilliant! 👍

 

I think I’ll need a some time to finish mine, and seems like a painting job will be tricky...

 

Cheers! 😎

Wonderful job on this model.  Love the light weathering and the work you put into painting it.
