Corsair A7D – Commission Build

HobbyBoss Ka-29 “Helix-B”

by Marvin Reyes on February 9, 2017 in Aviation -- 16 Comments

This is the HobbyBoss Kamov Ka-29 “Helix-B”, in 1/72nd scale. The kit exterior is pretty nice, however, there is very little detail inside of the cockpit or the rear transport compartment. I added a little scratchbuilt detail inside the cockpit […]
