This is fantastic news for us 1/48 helicopter modellers :yahoo::banana: :banana: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I had a 1/50 multi coloured piece of crap Mi-8 made in Russia (I think) that is long gone, thank god. I think I melted it down, it was so bad.

I was even contemplating buying the Trumpeter 1/32nd kit just to have one in a bigger scale. I know the Zevda 1/72nd one is nice but no interest in that small scale.

I can hardly wait. Wow going to be an expensive year :(

I can't wait for this kit. I have been waiting to do this bird for almost 10 years.

If it's as nicely done as the other AMK kits I've seen it will be something to see!

My favourite version of the Hip is the V5, hope they release this too, and make an A-Stan AF bird.

Looking forward to see this.

AMK said they are running these molds after the F-14 kit so I wonder how many pages long this thread will be by the time we see it? 😎

From Annetra here are some views of two production tools.

Work is progressing as far as I can see. My Czech language knowledge is not that good (Zero in fact apart from Ahoj ) but it seems that here is the very first test shoot of the kit.

Just have a look at any pages concerning the F-14

Have no idea at all. Lets hope that the F-14 is not something to go by. This Mi-17 has been in works for a very long time so lets hope it comes out soon.

The first test shoots are done and on a Czech site there are more photos including the strap on side fuel tanks. They look good.

 

Best regards

Until we can order it, in stock, I will think of it as vapor ware til then and keep my expectations low.

Clearly the Mil 8/17 is not as popular as a certain other kit AMK is working on as I noticed Jennings started both threads before he was long ago banned..........

I believe it will be a different story from the AMK F-14. Work is progressing really well, so I for one look forward to see the kit! Based on photos there is some nice details included in the kit. Lets keep fingers crossed!

Remember this is not an AMK kit. It will be from the Czech Anettra company, AMK is only doing the tooling of the press forms.

 

 

Some new photos of the first test shoots. The weld lines on strap-on side fuel tanks are made as they should be with raised lines. This is the small fuel tank with 3 braces.

 

Obviously the real plastic in hands will be interesting and real test of the product but based on these photos it looks like there is a chance for optimism.
