This time another helicopter,
The model is Mi-8MTV Polish Navy. The Model made straight from the box + one additive resin vibration damper over the rotor.

Trumpeter kit isn’t too good and easy to assemble, the big problem is with the cabin cover.
Unfortunately, I did’t use resin wheels and these kit ones are very weak. I will probably order new ones and replace them.
I tried to mix the color of the surface a little so that it would not be an ordinary gray-blue color.

Beautiful build, Dariusz! And a subject we don't see too often. Is it really 1/32, rather than 1/35?

At the beginning, thank you all for positive reception.

I made a mistake in the description, this model is of course scale 1:35.
I can't change the description in the title.
Maybe there is a chance to change the description by the administrator :please:

Done! But you actually can do it yourself; just edit the original post, and then choose the "use full editor" option, which will load the full post, enabling you to edit the title.

Looks much better dressed in white.  Damn nice windshield tie-in.  Great work all around.  Are the pods for fuel?  Electronics?

 

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Mark

Very nice! I've always kind of loved these ungainly helicopters. They may not be attractive but they can sure work! I've got one to build one day... I hope it comes up as nice as yours.
