Hound Hounding - part 1

I'd hoped to have had this beastie ready for the recent game but it's still not finished.  Despite its attractive price (it must have been quite cheap for me to buy it!) this turned out to be a 'proper' kit.  Indeed the less ham-fisted modeller has the option to include a load of internal detail and even opened rear clamshell doors.  Not me though.  Given that this thing is destined to have a hard life being loaded in and out of cars and halls even before we get to in game handling it seemed sensible to  leave many of the fiddly bits on the sprues....

Looks like a Soviet version of our dear Wessex Whirlwind (or maybe the Whirlwind was a copy of the Hound, who knows)...

Anyway, it's a very attractive whirlybird, look forward to seeing the final paint scheme.

I always loved the look of the Mi4

Nice looking work Tim. What it lacks in looks the Hound makes up for ugliness!

It has a definite look of Whirlwind/s.55 about it. And why not.

It's a 'proper' helicopter? Yes I know what you mean.

Harsh sir, harsh.
