Alex,

 

Your work is extremely impressive. Your cutaway portions are clean and very neat. I look forward to your progress and especially how you plan on detailing the exposed engine.

Yes. Your idea would probably work.

I'm stunned. I built the same kit (Monogram Mi-24 Hind D 1/48) back in 1987; it was my first helicopter ever. MAN do I appreciate all the more the stunning work you've done. :worship::cheers:

Many thanks Andrew.

Thank you Sammuel.
I should detail the engine compartment, yes.
The doors will be retractable.

Amazing work and look forward each time I get an alert about your work.

Started on my build and using some of your techniques for my project. Also doing some research. Is the troop cabin much different from the D and F versions of the Hind?

Hi Sammuel,

 

Answering your question, about versions D and F: the troop booths of these versions are practically the same, small differences exist only in the current and export versions when compared to the old ones.

Now it is the turn of the "Raduga" system (electro-optical sighting pod KPS-53A) ...

Interestingly, this complex "Raduga" was originally an underwater periscope (dating back to the 1930s) mounted upside down!

This is just crazy good. This, like your other builds, is a course on scratch building.


What sheet metal are you using? How do you cut it?

dnl42, Thanks for attending the topic!
I use aluminum plates cut from beer cans. I think they are 0.4 mm and are very malleable for folding and drilling.
I usually cut using a good pair of scissors. Use sandpaper to round the ends.

As always, you work is just amazing and real craftsmanship.

 

Your landing gear bay is interesting. So is the kit landing bay completely wrong? 

 

Would you be interested in selling your templates? If so, I would like to purchase a set of your cockpit template.

 

Thank you for the education you are giving all of us on scratch building

 

 

Respectfully,
