1/32nd Mi-24V Hind E - 0705 Czech Air Force

Recommended Posts

I'll be straight up and say while I really like the final product getting there wasn't easy. I was so excited to get this model and this scheme was a must, but as is so often with Trumpeter models it was a bit of a letdown!! Plus it needs and requires lots of extras to take it from being quite "toy" like.

 

The scheme I love and those that know me know I couldn't resist it.......even if it took 6 hours to mask up using masks.

 

Would I do it again, I probably would, but I would need to have the resin cockpit and cargo bay bits first.  

 

Please enjoy

Congratulations  on your 1st prize..

 

You deserve it as your HIND is pretty IMPRESSIVE.

Huh, so many details, don't know where to look first!

Cockpit is full to the teeth, really look busy.

I like burnt metal effect on engine exhausts, while dust footmarks on cargo doors are also very nice touch (although they might be just a touch with fingers? :D)

 

Well done mate, on to the new projects now :)

 

Oh, and congrats for the 1st place!

 

Cheers,

S.

That is a really brilliant build, absolutely stunning. The canopy and cockpit are great, love the camo scheme.

 

How long do you think you spent on the build ?

around 2 months to do, I had other projects on the go as well......plus work interfered in the end as well. All the PE stuff took the longest, especially in the cabin....which you can barely see!

Fantastic build. From the overall impression and striking paintwork down to the myriad tiny details. How you kept such a fine, uniform finish over such a large and detailed model deserves a medal of its own.

 

A well-deserved award winner 👏👏👏

Thanks.

 

Actually it was really hard, at first I was really unhappy with the finish and I wasn't too sure how far to go with the weathering. In the end I just decided to go with some light staining from the exhausts and and a bit of grim from the panel wash. That and the clear coats seemed to bring it all together. She's the biggest single finish I've done so far, plus it was all done with a 0.02mm needle airbrush.
