1/18th Scale Mi-24 Hind In Production !

Post by pickelhaube » Mon Dec 01, 2014 6:54 am

Alright guys , it is the first of the month as promised time to unveil the next large build .

As the title says if will be the Hind !!!

I do have something to show but it will have to be later on today.

I have enlisted the help of one of our talented 3-D computer guys and he has already plotted and had printed one of the major componets of the Hind and in hopefully in 2 weeks we will have something else to show.

He will be platting the smaller parts and I will be building the larger ones .

This will be my biggest under taking so far .

I have done the polls in the past and I will have a price point of around

$350-$450 for a resin kit.

This kit will not have as many parts as the Tiger II but will be close to 38 " long.

Stay tuned !!!!!!!

Thanks Mud Hen !!

I tried let the primer paint ( laquer ) dry for an hour but it never did . I guess I need to use acrylic .

Here goes .

Figures fitted. I had to pop off their feet so they could fit.

I will deepen the feet area so a full figure will fit in.

Supersonicfifi, hoping that every helicopter will get away of this swarm with all its main rotor blades intact...
If I had the choice, I would prefer the old sand/olive camo and the red star. My Mi-24 1991 pic posted a long time ago:

Great choice Matthew. 8)

Cockpit detail looks very good, and interested in seeing the rest of the project progress.

Not really a helo guy, but the Hind looks mean, and the business.

Nice idea, the UN version! Could be used in about every kind of diorama, no problem about "political correct", no problem for use with any nationnality of small army soldiers (with perheaps exception of ISIS?)... Point of view of a "neutral" swiss guy. I have allready a small platoon of UN Blue Helmets soldiers ready for boarding in the Mi-24...
