Thanks guys it means a lot !!!!

BTW

After fitting everything together it does NOT sit on it's tail !!!

But after molding and maybe cutting in the resin flow channels that could change.

But for now she sits just fine !!!

Seeing this finished and painted is going to make for an amazing moment. I'd like to see this next to a Blackhawk as well.

Thanks guys .

I will be using the 9M114 Shturm V missile on the Hind E . These were used in Aphganistan .

These projectiles are in a tube. So that is what you will see on the end pylons 2 inside and out side.

I have one made about 95 % but I need to make the mounting bracket that holds them.

A few guys have wanted a few pics for scale of the HIND with figures. I am not sure why because the mongoloid BBI HIND has figure that fir in it as well.

Anyway here are a couple with figs in the cockpit.

They were extremely hard to get in even with out the glass. I am designing the cockpit so the whole frame glass and all will pop on and off so you can fi the figs in.




I also got the vacumeform plug in from Shapeways. Jay had them make the canopy shiny and polished but looks more like Styrofoam.

He is going to have them remake it .

feed back time .

PLEASE ALL OF YOU GUYS WHO ARE GETTING THIS PLEASE CONTACT ME VIA PM OR PUBLIC POST.

I have a meeting with my stencil guy this Thursday. We are going to hash out just what I want for him to do.

This is what I am thinking and if you guys want more let me know !!!
1. 3 Russian stars just like the decal sheet
2. Yellow and black warning signs left right
3. Crylic numbers the same style 0-9 x both sides
4. Stick on dial faces in cockpit

As far as the numbers goes I think plain stencils would work. But the warning flash and stars may be a little trickier to use because of the multiple colors in them.

They can be used but a little more work will have to be done. Now , there is another option and this is were I need the feedback. I can have the stars and yellow and black warning flashes made as self adhesive stickers !!! Just peel and stick . Then paint over ( clear ) to make them blend in.

The thickness would be like that of a piece of paper. I am not sure of the pricing you guys will have to choose one or the other. Pricing will determine if I will order one choice or both.

So you guys please speak up.

]Is there any interest in the monster B8 V20 Rocket Pod ?

I think this rocket pod was added later in the life O the Mi-24 E .

I am not sure how this can be produced. It would be a lot of work cutting those tubes because I am pretty cure that they could not be casted.

I could have them as an option for Jay to submit it to Sahpeways and you guys can have them printed for yourself . Or I could make the pod body and you guys can cut the 80 or so tubes . That is a lot of tubes

Or just keep with the stock pods that I will provide with the kit.

I got a little work done on the crew cabin. I was able to raise the ceiling about 1/2 inch. You can fit the figures in through the top but they will have to articulate like an Acid Rain figure to pose them. Chance of finding a Spetznaz figure to fit may be a challenge.







Thanks Nick

Lots of practice !!


.jpg[/img][OK Guys ,

With lots of help from Lee Patterson I have a handle on the Hinds pilot and WSO .

Their flight helmets are similar with the 50 style American helmet. The same helmet that comes with the 104 ( I hope that I can find one )

The major difference are the solar visors USA slides behind a protective cover USSR the visor is external .

Also some typical pilots wore a brown leather bombers jacket and camo pants !!!!

One of my figures in the crew cab picks has a bombers jacket !!!

Combine the upper torso with a Viet par of pants and you have a hind crewman !!!!

Of course with the correct helmet of which I will make.

These guys are waring black leather jackets .










This guy is using the helmet liner only but is waring the brown leather jacket with camo pants

I have yet to determine the final cost . But I have them up for PRE-SALE NOW @ $300 plus shipping.

Once production starts I will be able to determine the final cost.

Est final cost $350-$450
