'Orrible 'Oplite - part 2

Here is the completed Mi-2, resplendent in two-tone green camo.
The simplifications I introduced to the build aren't too obvious.
Polish markings were sourced from the decal box.  I had wanted to use East German markings but didn't have any in stock.  If anyone has any East German decals to spare I can offer them a home and gainful employment.  The same goes for most Warpact markings.

Turned out nice Tim- are the main rotors fixed or removable?

Cheers,

Pete.

Oh that looks very dandy.

Nice work!

I am sure I can source you a few NVA type looking decals.

The rotor assembly is removable - making storage and transport if not easy then at least possible!

I needed to try and balance things up after someone sent me a load of US helis.......

Well done.

Lovely work Tim. I recently saw a picture of one of those (or maybe a later model MI series chopper) in Polish colours exercising with Canadian troops in E. Europe. How times change.
