I assembled the rotor. Again very nicely detailed and perfect fit. The rotor blades where a bit oddly shaped but because they're pretty thin it's an easy task to bend them in the right shape. Just added some wires to the main rotor and some PE to the tail one.
Nothing else so straight to the pictures...




Almost done building :-)

Wow Fabian this is micro modelling at its finest ! That's a serious amount of detail packed into a my kit and it looks fantastic.

Everything is really neat and tidy too and I can't wait to see the paint go down on the exterior

Fabian...I've been following your excellent build; despite the scale the kit and scratchbuilt detail brings the kit to life. I will be waiting to see the freehand camo painting.

Thanks Pete! I'm getting used to the scale, so the switch to the 1/35 will be funny :-)
Started to test the exterior colors. Have a nice set by AKAH for Russian helicopters, looking forward to use it!

Thank you Matt for the encouragement but to be honest I don't think I can pull of a freehand camo :-/. But have a plan how to mask... not without some testing on a scrap piece. Don't want to mess up this baby ;-)

Tried to put the doors and hatches in place to save me some masking... well, some where fitting, most didn't at all. Stuffed the cockpit with tissue paper and covered the engines as good as possible with tape and blue tack. Will see how wel if done later?
Also checked for seam lines, looks okay to me.

Vallejo grey primer. Pushed the air pressure a bit, around 25psi. Worked pretty good this time..


First color is done. Like the blue. Pretty sure it will look great with a banana :-)

Hi, time for a painting update. I did some tests for freehand the camo... what was I thinking, lol. Waaaay to small and complex and my AB skills are fare from getting even close of what I had in mind. So I proceeded like this:

First the dark green. I know, usually it's better to start with the light color, but this will make masking more easy.


Than the masking fun started :-). Scanned the instructions to get them in the right scale and used the print as a template to cut al the curves.


Preshading for the sand color. Looking pretty wild...


And the sand color. Looks pretty dark in the first picture so did some post shading...
