I actually have a real update.

I have taken a copy of the color schemes and went down and enlarged them to 1/18 scale.

Before I started the HIND I ordered a vacuform helo body in kinda 1/18 scale.

Originally I was going to use rubber sheeting to make the camo template but considering the nature of the rubber I feared that when I took it off the model it would smudge the paint.

So I figured that I would use the vac shell as a hard template .

After 4 days here is what I got and I am still not finished.

Hopefully I will have it and the boom done enough to do a trail paint .

Lee Patterson who was the VERY FIRST person to buy the Hind has changed his full build to the UN livery .

His will be the Mi-35 with the twin cannons on the starboard side and of course the wjite paint job .

So I will be offering the UN variant as well !!

Hmmm why is that UN Hind all blurry ?

Anyway the templates work perfectly .
I airbrushed some paint to check the edges and I am happy they way it tured out.
Nice and soft .
After I cut the temps I glued some rubber bands 1/8th inch tall and back from the edge.

Proof of concept.

Back set of temps came out great as well

It took me over 6 days of work !!

I hope that the time saved will be worth a weeks worth of work.
