Rarely am I lost for words, not being able to express myself. But, after I'd started looking
and reading through this build thread, I soon realized I needed some help. So I went back
to Page-1 and copied all the "superlatives" used by others, in describing the process and
progress of this wonderful project.
 
It's not everyday we have the pleasures of seeing a task such as this, performed in this
upmost professional manner. And, I'm by no means an expert on helicopters. But, I do
know this... "only both the Russians and Alexandre can build a Hind like this!" It would
be criminal if this model didn't make it into several, Scale Modeling Magazines. So the
best thing I can possibly contribute as a worthy comment about Alexandre's model is
this.
 
"He decided to start and complete a Scratch-building endeavor, and discovered along
the way... he needed to add a Hind helicopter kit to it."

Thanks rlangdale and Charlie!

Glad you liked it!

Sammuel,

The Monogran / Revell kit landing bay is not completely incorrect. It is only "poor" in detail and the point I commented in the last post is one of the perceived defects. In an OOB assembly it passes smoothly.
Regarding the sale of drawings: Not everything in life is money! The camaraderie and respect among the members of this hobby should prevail. For the human being to evolve, it is necessary to share knowledge without financial ambitions.
Send me a private message with your personal email that I forward to you the drawings in PDF (drawings) I have made (so far) of Hind 1/48 pieces.

Man, I don't even care about the model...that is some righteous, spot on spirituality.

Just when you thought you'd seen what you thought you saw, we now get an APU for

the Hind. Oh, forgive me... an VSU (вспомогательная силовая установка) as those

folks in Russia would say! "It shouldn't get any better, but you can bet it will."

Meu amigo,

 

I just spent more than an hour going thru this thread. Incredible work!  Not surprising we ran out of superlatives. A true inspiration for us mere mortals.  Looking forward to see more.

Eu levanto meu guaraná!  🙂

 

Thanks,

Ismael

Alexandre, have you tried to print my m60? 

Yes Alex!
Your M-60 was printed using resin (not filament) and looked great on the 1/48 scale ...
Printing using this type of material is not cheap, but it has a much higher quality compared to the filament ABS.
Thanks again for the availability of the 3D file!
See print photos...

Are those lights on the tips of the blades?

My Friend,

There are lights at the tips of the blades that provide this effect:

However, in my model, I did not program the inclusion of these lights (it would be very nice ... unfortunate not to have foreseen and done that).
