If you need any info or photos, the Mi-8PS is at the ex Motortechnica Museum, Bad Oeynhausen in Germany. Also, if you're building it how it is in the photo, a Mi-8PS is very different from a Mi-8MT. Should be good either way, can't wait to see what you do.

Yes i know there are great difrences but for me iff it looks like on the pics i will be happy

im not a rivet counter so just going to change the tail rotor and windows

the pic is just a guide on how i hope it will look like when done

lets call it artisic freedom
