  1. Hello guys, I thought I'd put up some WIP pictures of my latest in progress project. Here's the subject - the Czech Air Force Mi-24v Hind Alien Tiger... I'm not dwelling too much on the interior with this build - the kit cockpit will be good enough for this one... Racing ahead, the fuselage going together... The Revell kit is of the Mi-24D whereas the Czech Alien Tiger is the Mi-24V (or Mi-35 which is the export designation). So a few bits will need to be added to convert her to the 24-V spec. One of the items is the IR jammer (Disco light as it's known). This was scratch built starting with a blob of Milliput (on top of cling film so it doesn't stick)... Then cut to rough shape with a razor saw and sanded... A little bit of detail scribed into the Milliput and the jammer made from Sprue and styrene rod wrapped around it. Two more sensors scratch built - this time RHAW sensors. Almost ready for paint - here's a quick mockup... Here's the canopy - seams sanded and fettled into position... And a view of the extended tail boom. The light grey insert is from a CMK resin kit. The kit includes weight on wheels, flare dispensers and fuel tanks. In hind sight ("HIND sight" - I'm here all week!) I could have also got a CMK kit that included the IR jammer and other bits but I only worked that out after I had scratch built the parts - no worries, had fun doing them anyway. And finally for tonight a pic of the beginning of the paint job. This photo is really a test piece to see if I can get a fine enough pattern with the airbrush to freehand the entire paint job, and to tune in my paint to thinner ratios to get a good consistency for micro airbrushing. The brown colour is a custom mix of Tamiya colours and I'm pretty happy that it's close to the original colour. I will need to work on refining some of the fine details to get them so they look sharper - but happy with that as a start.
  2. Hi there, here is my Mil Mi-24 A from Zvezda in 1/72 scale that I did some time ago. This build was featured in Meng Air Modeller issue 65. Most of my scratch build efforts went in the cockpit as it was pretty bare. Otherwise this is a great kit. INBOX REVIEW The whole build you can find on the link: To The Mi-24 Hind A Build Article All comments and critiques are appreciated. Best regards Metodi
