Okay, I SWORE that I could not enter this GB becasue of all the projects on my bench. But when I kept looking at everything in the GB and then over to my stash, I got RUSSIAN FEVER today and decided to build a Russian Kamov K-50 attack Helicopter. I had ordered some Eduard PE a long time ago.

NOTE: I WILL NOT START THIS KIT UNTIL I HAVE COMPLETED THE NIGEL SIG BATMOBILE/FUTURA. FINAL ANSWER.

So with that said, I have photos of the kit and PE for your viewing:

 Basic Wikipedia page: 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kamov_Ka-50

A link to internet images:

BTW--if you read the Wikipedia article or some other info about the Kamov, you learn that it is billed as the only fully acrobatic helo and also has a pilot ejection system. It takes 6 seconds to cycle and includes ejecting the rotor blades before the pilot is launched out of the cockpit.cool.

If you want to fly a Ka-50 - try good old pc flight sim DCS: Black Shark 2

Nice kit of a nice helo. Long time ago i've build Italeri Ka-50, but in 1/72. But I'm wandering... Then someone start to build most russian of all russian helicopters? And it's not Kamov! [smile]

I've got a Mil Hind 1/48 by Revell [overall my FAV Russian helo] and a LOAD of interior/exterior PE + weapons, etc. I wanted to do the Kamov--it is admittedly an easier project. If I am starting late on the GB, I didn't want to overload the time frame. you guys know how I drag things out! LOL
