cool. thanks for posting that. looks like the best deal [4 pilots--I have a lot more helos in the stash], especially since the cockpit will be closed. Even if a resin figure was available, won't be very visible buried in that armored pit. The enemy chopper/missile launch idea is a good one. I actually chose the Kamov helo because out of the Russian kits I have [two fighters and the helo], it seemed to be the easiest to build and finish since I will start the GB late. My track record is not finishing GB's. NOT to mention I am way behind on the SIG! Two of the kits on my bench right now are leftovers from GB incompletes! The Phantom F-4 and the Corsair diorama. I would like to finish the Russian GB and get back to those two projects.

Ok American but they are quite good figures with separate arms and the kit is cheap too [smile]

I bought this kit online. It will arrive by boat from the far east maybe before the end of September. No joke guys!

YAY! the Academy helo was in the post today. Some of the kits of this model contain 2 pilots, some 4. Mine has 4!!! One for the KAMOV and then 3 more for future helo projects. It was a great deal. 4 helo pilots and a chopper to boot.

Thanks again Paul--Choppa Nutta--for recommending this kit. $12.99US and that included shipping.



the other positive about this acquisition is that I may tackle making some additional "RESIN" helo pilots from the kit pilots. Then I could be set for all of my Helicopter builds that I needed pilots for. Hmmmmm..................

Been catching up with the group build stuff I built the Tamiya 1/72 Kamov last year, which is the re boxing of the Italeri 1/72 kit, this will look really impressive in 1/48 and with all those photo etch goodies subscribed for sure.
Good luck Ted
Gary

Due to health/financial reasons, I will not be able to complete this helo for the GB. Bummer. However, the participation here is awesome and I will enjoy seeing the results by all you guys! Cheers and best wishes.
