Revell 1/72 Kamov KA-52

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

I just wanted to show you another of my models.

This one was build last winter.

The cockpit is a NeOmega and didn't fit at all. It was definitely not designed for the Revell kit.

However, I sanded and sanded untill it fitted.

The camo is a little different :closedeyes:

I hardly didn't use decas and the camo was taped off with 1mm tape. A lot of work but I was really happy with the result.

Let me know what you think of it. All comments are welcome.

Hi

This is very well done. The camo is fantastic.

What is the difference between the Revell, the Italeri and the Zvezda kits?

Absolutely brilliant result from what must have been very time consuming. A lot of patience needed and you've really pulled it off.

Thanks for all your comments !!

It was time consuming, however it cost me a lot more time (and frustration) to get the resin NeOmega cockpit to fit the airframe than the paintjob.

A lot of sanding and dry fitting.

It is a beautiful cockpit set from NeOmaga and a big difference with the Revell cockpit.

Of course taping and painting the KA-52 cost me a lot of time too. I think I needed about 10 evenings to tape and paint the whole scheme. And two evenings to get the tape off.

But it was fun, so much fun I will do another one. Maybe the next winter…. Not sure yet though.

Again, thanks for all your comments.

Really superb job - and I thought masking the splinter camo on a 1/48 Viggen was difficult. Wow!

There are a couple of USN F-18 Super Bugs with an experimental digital camo like this. Seeing your build makes me want to give that a try!

Cheers,

Bill
