TOPIC: Brazilian AH-2 Sabre (Mi-35) in 1/72

Brazilian AH-2 Sabre (Mi-35) in 1/72 14 Feb 2020 10:45 #1

Hi Friends,

I am really pressed for time but I wanted to get the ball rolling on my new Project. This is going to be the Brazilian AH-2 designated Sabre in the FAB (Brazilian Air Force) which is the first Export of the Mi-35.
Brazil has bought 12 of those which are based at Porto Velho AB in Rondonia, and are used for the Border control and Anti-Drug Trafficking duties.

This is the new Zvezda kit with Eduard PE and decals from Begemot in Russia.

This is by far my favorite chopper. I hope you like it too :choppa

Cheers and happy Valentine's day (which is actually my birthday too...)

Alex

Eduard offered a special release a while back that had 2 of these Zvezda Mi-24 kits and a real nice reference book. Most of the photos were of Czech machines including one in H.R.Geiger "Alien" livery.

They look like really nice kits so it should be interesting to see what you do with yours Alex!..

Happy Birthday FBD!!!

Great subject I'll definitely be following along... :popcorn
Perhaps we can get together offline and talk over some paint and weathering techniques...when you get to that point.

Thanks Luiz, Paul and Eric.

Unfortunately the Keyboard is German and I can manage to Change it to English but for portuguese it is simply not possible. So all the crazy signs we have will remain silent.

Paul, I have seen a few of These on EBay, going for about 50-60€ generally. I found it a bit expensive. If I do get a Chance I will get them as well. I have the Begemot decals which offers more than 30 Versions, so there is a lot you can do.

Eric thanks a lot! I will most definitely take you up on your offer as soon as I get to that Point. Cheers!

In any case this is the Progress so far dear friends - lots of PE and some Initial assemblying:

Thanks Bob,

somehow I am having a Problem with These .HEIC Images, although they seem straight in my Computer when I upload them into the site they are crooked. Any ideas on what I am doing wrong?

Cheers

Alex

I have seen this with my phone photos. There is some kind of coding in the photos that the computer can sometimes ignore and do weird things with. Check the thumbnails, if they are rotated you might need to do a simple edit on the computer. I usually crop my photos and save them in the size I want to post. That way they always show up as intended.

I have no idea, about this time next month the website should handle your photos much more differently. :thumbsup
