Amazing hand-painted 1/35 Mil Mi-24 Hind

A picture in Rob’s latest Friday Briefing showing a Hungarian Mi-24 Hind painted as a bird reminded me of this, the Best in Show winner at this year’s Moson Model Show.
This 1/35 scale Hungarian Air Force Mi-24 Hind “Csőrike 2” was built and brought all the way to the show by Mr. Cheng Pin Fan from Taiwan.
According to the modeler: “I always wanted to build this particular Mi-24, but since there was no aftermarket decal set available, I came in to paint it myself.”
Cheng Pin Fan used a combination of brush and airbrush techniques for this remarkable and challenging paint job. A tell-tale gallery of construction photos can be found at his Facebook page at:
