Camo paints and layout schemes.
Here is the Humbrol paint link .
https://www.humbrol.com/us-en/
Type in the color number in search and you can see what I will be using.
Color 94 ( tan ) can not be found so I am thinking it should be 74 any way that is what I will be using.

The full builds will be in this order.
Afgahn War


Cold War



Modern. I will not be doing the tiger tail and the line between the top camo and sky gray bottom will be strait.

I have modeling book on how to make that paint scheme .

It is not going to happen.


Here is an update .

it takes on an average one full day to pour one full kit and at best 2 .

Depending if I have the main hull done.

It takes about 4 hours to prep the hull because of the misshape on the bottom of the hull .

I can sort up to 1-5 kits in a day.

I can pack 1-5 kits in a day.

On a normal week I have 2 days to work on the HIND.

Saturday and Sunday .

That means it takes about a month to get 4 kits out.

So what I am going to do is start to work on 2 kits at a time .

That means in about 1-2weeks I will be shipping 2 kits out .

2 weeks is better than 4 weeks to be waiting OD ( on deck )

I will try this meathod when I start the full builds , I think

2 Af War then 2 Cold War then 2 Mod and so on.

I think that this could be a little fairer .

But this could be a logistics nightmare .

But we will see.

It was just a joke and a show off, what a cool show helicopter we have here in Hungary, IMHO. :)
I wouldn't paint my chopper to that scheme even if i could, because
1. It can be a pain in the ass.
2. I want a military helicopter, not a showcase one.

Hey Guys,

I may have an issue with the full builds .

I have enough decals to do all of the kits but NONE for the full builds . ( stars and tail cation flash )

I called my decal maker and he said that his machines are packed away and it may be late fall till he can get to them.

I have had stencils made of the stars and flash but I am not sure how user friendly they will be.
THE STARS HAVE THAT RED OUT LINE ON THEM.


I am hoping ( l planed to use them ) that the stencils will work out.

But in case they do not , would it be possible for you kit guys to loan me your star and flash decals just in case.

My decal guy says that they will be truly replaced.

Matthew

Work progresses on The first build.

There is a lot of nipping and tucking going on.

The prototype fitted perfectly , the production parts not so much.

I am trying to take pics on what I am doing so it will be easier for you guys building your own to fallow along.

I built a brand new 36 " paint booth to paint the full builds with 2 blowers .

I thought that it would be big enough. It is not.

I am rebuilding it to 5 feet with 4 blowers


A potential buyer wanted to know the specs .

I thought you guys would be interested as well.

Here are the HIND Stats. in 1/18 scale.

Nose to tail ----------------39.25 "
Rotor diameter------------38"
Rotor to tail fin------------44.5 "
Main rotor to tail rotor---46.5
Height -----------------------10"
All measurements are aprx.

Cockpit paint masters almost done.
It took me over 3 days to make the painting templates.
I did all the button details with tooth pics.
It took me 3 hours do !!
They worked great !!!
I am going to let the parts dry over night before I stick the instrument faces.

Hey Guys ,

Looking back to 2018 it was the worst year ever for my work.
Making toys and selling off some of my helmets got us through the year.

At the start of holidays I took on some projects hoping to make quick money.
That did not work out so well.
The quick part anyway.

I would say I have about 3-4 weeks to finish these projects .
Then I will be able to get back on the full builds .

I have tried to do a couple hours here or there , but that does not work.
I need total days to get anything done .

I hope this does not pizz anybody off but I had to do what I had to do in order to pay bills.

In the mean time I have been able to put in a few hours here and there to finish off a couple of projects to garner more money hopefully.

I can wait no prob, and I can also front you some money for that AAV project if your still interested in doing it, I have all kinds of smalls too if you need cash flow, side jobs here in California are busting at the seams $$$ pm me if your still interested , also if you have old kits or parts laying around for older projects I might be interested in purchasing loose stuff IE hummer turrets M113 turrets gun mounts tires, wheels etc.

Thanks guys for understanding.

I got roped into doing a 1/48 scale tug boat that I need to finish with the possibility of having to make 6 more.

That actually is a good thing because the money is there.

I have given them a finish date of March 31th or sooner .

After that date I will be jumping on the HIND with booth feet.

My wife is the artsy fartsy type ( I have been accused of this as well) and I will have here take on the finish of the cockpit details so I can work on other things .

That is good because from start to finish I have about 3 days into the paint master and I have 16-17 to do .

That should take about 51 days off the top of the project.

I am thinking of posting the Tug boat on the Off Topic Forum .

That will be kind of a timer until I start back on the HIND .

Unless this is going to pizz you guys off .

Let me know from you full build guys if you do/ do not want me to do this.

Matthew
