Top Gun's Mil Mi-14PL
« on: April 08, 2021, 04:06:32 PM »
Here is my next project. I am waiting to go to Halfords on Monday for some white paint for the Sea King.
Anyway I think this one will be quite a challenge - all resin parts and plenty of them.

Hi Chris,
Looks like a nice model.
Is this the amphibious version?
Along the lines of the Mil-8?
Will look nice in blue and grey.
Cheers

Yes it is the amphibious version of the Mi-8.  There are a number of usable paint schemes - all blues and greys. I haven't decided exactly which yet to do. I think it may be some time before I get to the painting.

I always think that it is a shame to cover up such nice detail.

Yes - I look at it as "if you can see it do it - if you can't don't bother" - but I am strange as Zak keeps telling me - hohohohoho
As it is its great Chris - wish I could do to that standard.

Yes I think you are right. Some of the mouldings are quite detailed.

Glazing done in each of the fuselage halves. The glazing can only be completed after assembly as the last panel of the windscreen is in the middle - so needs to be attached to both halves.

Hi Chris,
Nice work on that glazing.
Are they plastic or clear resin?
