Zvezda 1/48 Mi-24 Hind
I've always been intimidated by the Hind. It is big and it looks mean. When the Zvezda kit came out, I just had to build it. I'd say it was a much easier build than the Hasegawa Apache but it does require some care and patience closing up the multi-part fuselage, the multi-part canopy and the iffy landing gear.
I wrote an article about the build which morphed into a commentary of how popular the Hind once was: https://modelairplanemaker.com/2021/03/02/1-48-zvezda-mi-24-hind-a-model-of-the-most-destructive-military-force-ever-conceived/
Let me know what you think!
