Looking great.
Resembles a Chickasaw.  8)
Based on it but larger.

Hi Chris,j
Great stuff.
How much bigger than a Chickasaw?
Cheers,
Bigkev
Here are a couple of dimensions for you Kevin.
The Mi-4 rotor dia. 68ft and length 82ft
The Chickasaw rotor dia. 53ft and length 42ft.
So quite a bit larger.

On one of our next meetings I'll bring both models so you can compare.

Completed.  A bit of filling was required but overall not bad. The green is a Tamiya (XF13) paint and the blue a Mr Hobby(67).
I had to buy some additional decals as I don't remember whether they were in the kit or I'd lost them.
The figure is just for scale.

Looks good. Judging by the figure, the thing must have been enormous!
