Hello Britmodellers! 👏

 

Finally, I’m finished this excellent and well-detailed kit from Zvezda. I’m not planned to post the pictures in RFI and even the WIP sections, but it can be interesting for some of us. It’s not a Class A build... Let’s look!

 

The starboard side:

And the port side:

48017899023_4b6d84f711_k.jpg

 

The front view is good and the disadvantages is not so noticeable:

Hats off:

The other side:

Zvezda provides us a very detailed engine compartment OOB:

The main rotor is very detailed, too:

The belly has a nice details, I like how it looks slightly weathered:

Let’s take a closer look on the aft side:

And the nose section:

The navigation lights are from the clear parts. The starboard:

And the port side:

That’s all for now and there is a WIP thread, for those who interested:

 

Thanks for looking! 🐈

Very nicely done indeed. Colouring and finish looks great and I especially like the way the green camouflage parts are represented. Looks pretty authentic to me. Zvezda are producing some pretty good models these days. May have to get myself a Hind sometime soon!

 

Well done, great result.

Good work! Only camouflage colors are not correct.

If I'd built it, I'd call it Class A!

 

Very well done, and your build thread was very informative.

But I must choose the other way and paint her from dark to the light tones.

YES! The suggested colors turned out very light in the end, next time I’d prefer to mix my own. Practice, practice, practice...

Thanks, it’s always interesting to how it builds (I don’t know why)! That’s why I not so often visit an RFI section of our site...

 

Thank you guys! 🤝

Looking good, may,be, just maybe, add the anti-icing strip to the main rotorblades... is metallic, but looks more brownish, will make them less dull...

Thanks, it looks like my fault... But instructions are silent about it.

 

Thanks! 🤝

This "Crocodile" looks very good, my friend. It looks like Zvezda have put more / better detail on a 1/72nd kit than Trumpeter put on their 1/35th brute!

 

Thanks for sharing with us. 

 

Chris.

Yes, it’ll be great to see that kit in quarter scale - like Zvezda did it with their Pe-2.

No, I slightly weathered the belly and tail - I haven’t enough experience for that and, to be honest, not like a lot.

Fantastic.  The Hind family look a terrifying bunch of choppers.

EXCELLENT work, Sir!  I have this beautiful kit and will build it as a Sudanese bird as soon as I can get the decals and AKAN paints lined-up.  Will probably build her closed-up (and put the extra parts in the spares box!) but I DO like what you've done on your kit.

Has anyone around here built the Monogram 1/48 Hind?  It's been in my stash of unbuilt kits for more than 30 years. 😀

Fantastic build and lovely finish, Nikolay. Enough 'class' for any of us to be proud of! Can't wait to see you do one as a Class A build!

Thanks, Werner! Sure thing - this kit is detailed enough, even for the 1:48 scale! Maybe a Kitty Hawk will do it?! 😋

Hello and thank you, CC! But something went wrong with the colors (the suggested ones are so bright) - I think I can get and try the AKAN paints (nice idea, @WARDOG) for the next Hinds...

Thanks, Kev! I think I need some more practice (or patience) to level-up my skills...
