Zvezda 1/48 Mi-24 Hind

I've always been intimidated by the Hind. It is big and it looks mean. When the kit came out, I just had to build it. I'd say it was a much easier build than the 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/

  1. A wonderful Hind, Chris! Love all this extra detailing you added! The end result is definitely impressive!
    Loved reading your article at Model Airplane Maker: born in 1966, being a youngster during the 70s, I do miss those simpler times...
    Congratulations!

  2. Fabulous! More pictures, please.

  3. Great build, Chris. Looks as brutish as the real thing. Superb detail on the engine and armament. Beautifully airbrushed camo.

  4. Outstanding model of the machine that became the terror of the skies of Afghanistan for a while.
