Kudos for dealing with that photoetch work Fabian.

Look forward to seeing that green/blue interior. I see that AK have brought out the Russian colours too.

When you get back to that Sci Fi build it's going to seem massive.

Haha, pretty sure everything is looking massive after this build. Lol
Sorry, no update yet. I'm very busy at work an a lot of my free time I'm planning our Japan trip. But e keep going on with small sessions, just have to make some pics. But I'm positive that I can post an update this weekend. The kit is great and fun to build and starting to really like the Mi-24... will propose this for the next GB, want to build the 1:32 Trumpeter one :-)

Finally I took some pictures to show what's happening on my bench. The detail of this kit is amazing... most of the 1/48 kits I build so far look empty next to this one :-).

Added some extra wires in the nose section...

...and some pluming in the crew compartment...

Some pictures dry fitting the interior in the fuselage. Pretty happy so far with the look of it. The chipping and weathering is maybe a little heavy handed, but everything is so small I figured it's good to exaggerate a little so at least something will be visible when it comes together. Hope it will work :-/







That's it for now. Next will be the engines as they have to go in there before closing the fuselage. Hope you like it. Any tips for handling this scale are welcome :-)

Fabian, this is looking fantastic. Don't worry about heavy chipping, Russian helos saw a lot action and cosmetically were not looked after too much.

The only advice I can give you is that when you get to these scales some colours don't work and can sometime give that "toy" look about the model. Quite a few times I've had to respray a cammo with a lighter/dull shade. I've heard a lot of modellers talking about scaling down a colour...might be worth checking out.

Enjoy Japan...like the GB idea.

Although I can't always add a comment I'm enjoying this..it's amazing work by you all, how you are each overcoming difficulties (with ease I might add).

Worked on the engines. Again, the kit parts are very very nice!


Pretty messy, but I think she can have it ;-)

Wow Fabian that really does look amazing ! This level of detail would be impressive in 1/32 but to see it in this scale is just mindblowing. Those little etched boxes must be microscopic but you are making it look easy

Interior is looking stunning already and the weathering is beautiful and in scale.

It's a great looking helo and I too would like to build the Trumpeter big scale kit.

Outstanding work

Pete
