The Mi-2US from Trumpeter is a nice surprise, some progress are being made by the chinese brand. Being better that other there are some issues that look very hard to solve, all the "ghost marks" (probably for other versions or variants), the lack of information about the colors, confuse instructions... some lines that almost disappear etc etc... only go tive you an example, in the box the "subject" of this box appears all painted in green, well in the painting instructions... its green and blue, like the Soviet version!!! Lots and lots of hours on the internet trying to find what is correct... the box art or the instructions... well the box art is right, i didnt find any picture of this version with the blue, but... i i found other errors... well not bad at all if we only look to the quality of the kit, in the others aspects they still have a lot to improve, and please give to the modelers better and correct building/painting instructions!!!
well im going to put some pics here soon

Looks great so far. Looking forward to the finish. Speaking of the Finnish, did they use the Mi-2?
2. August 2012 at 13:24:29
@ Bill: I don´t think so. They use(d) the Mi-4 and the Mi-8.

The Mi-1 was used as well by Finland.

Thank you for your kind workds. I finished it this afternoon and it already with the owner (this was another under commission build)
It was a fun build with some issues but nothing truly difficult.
I hope you like it.

You didn't sleep again much did you?
What type of wash did you use on the whole model?

Nice my friend, a real looker

Excellent build and painting. Too bad Hobby Boss screwed up on the main rotor hub (1:48?)
19. September 2016 at 18:18:26
I guess 1:144 or 1:72 Scale in the max, by the comparison to the paint.
19. September 2016 at 18:52:22
I mean the rotor hub that is far too big, not the kit (which is 1:72)
19. September 2016 at 19:49:45
Ah, Ok. Now i see what you mean. It looks really out of scale. I was so stunned from the Paintwork that i didn't mind that detail.
