Title: Mi-24 1/72nd from Hobby Boss
Post by: B_Realistic on April 09, 2013, 04:09:32 PM
Hi,

I've finished my Mi-24 from Hobby Boss in 1/72nd scale.
Decals are from MAV and represents the Mi-24 from Mozambique.
Better pictures will come later.

Hi Michel, looks very nice, apart for the struts of the canopy, whose paint gives the idea to be too thin and transparent.
Regards
Massimo

Hi Michel,

same as Massimo I noteced a bit transparent canopy framing. But generally very nice kit. And I suppose quite difficult to place it somewhere on the shelf due to big horizontal propeller (I have AH-64 in 1:48) ;-)

I've noticed that about the canopy and I'm going to correct this.
It's when taking the pictures that you see those things.
So when corrected other pictures will follow. :D

Hey Michel,

That is a very cool looking model here  8)! I love this model and it always have a agressive look.
I have seen this helicopter in real live and its a beast!

@4bogreen
Thanks for the comments.
I'm going to redo the canopy and bend the rotors more.
And several years ago I had the opportunity to sit in the gunners seat from a Tzech Mi-24. :D
