Default Trumpeter 1/35 Hind Mi-24 Gunship

Hi everyone
Well, time I did another WIP thread here. I wasn't going to start this yet as I really wanted to finish of my BSG Pegasus but I couldn't resist the urge to start it, so here I am
This is a well known kit and I think it deserves all the positive comments it got when it was released. It's a little sparse on some details, but that nothing some plastic strip and lead/copper wire won't cure
The only after market I'll be using for this are the Czech decals I have coming and the Eduard masking set


I have made the obligatory start with the cockpit. I spent a LONG time looking for the right colours to use for that Turquoise blue that the Hind's are known for and I found the closets match I could with Game Color's Turquoise - it's almost, if not, dead on to the pictures I have. I sprayed it over Tamiya Fine White primer and it looks awesome. Next comes the tedious task of masking out the control panels!









Unfortunately, despite my best efforts, I couldn't get the camera to truly show the colour of those panels. They look much better in the plastic



I have also added some missing detail from the back of the pilots seat. How much of this will be seen once the fuselage halves are together remains to be seen - I highly doubt anything will be, but I know it's there and now, so do you















And that's it for now. I will keep on detailing and painting and will be back with some progress later


Till then
MH
