Trumpeter's 1/32 scale

Mil Mi-24V Hind E

 


Trumpeter's 1/32 scale Mi-24V Hind E is available online from Squadron


 

Description

 

Here some photos of my Trumpeter Mil Mi-24V Hind-E in 1/35 scale.

 

 

This is my last creation, which took more or less six months.

The model has been improved with many extra details (especially engines and rotors), not bought from aftermarket but found at home and/or hand made.

 

 

The camouflage has been painted freehand, with the airbrush at low pressure (no mask) using reference photos for the pattern. Humbrol colors has been used for the camouflage, while Tamiya "Smoke" has been applied to realize some weathering near the engine.

Weathering has been applied with oil colors. Many of the effects have been created via postshading with the airbrush. I used post-it notes to mask different area tones.

The stand was made from an old wooden plate. The artificial grass is from Heki.

Photos were taken with a Nikon Coolpix e880 and enhanced with Photoshop (to remove undesired surfaces with the wand tool).

 


 
I would to thank Trumpeter to give me the fortune to build this kit. Thank you!
