How was the kit quality?
13. January 2019, 23:15
Jon Fincher
The kit quality was great, and everything fit well. It comes with masks for the canopy, which made painting very easy. It was my first try at a freehand camo paint job, and the size made it fun to do. It's an impressive model when it's done - it's half a meter long when done, and the rotor is 10 cm longer (about 18-20 inches)

There were three issues I had: The interior is a little sparse for the scale - if you display it with the aft cargo doors open, you'll want to add something else. The pilot/co-pilot fans on the instrument panel were a little finicky to create - the photo-etch blades needed to be twisted, and I wound up shooting one somewhere in my workspace (I never did find it).

The worst for me, however, were the rotor blades - at 30cm long, they are waaaay too heavy for the mounting hardware. After they broke for the umpteenth time, I wound up flooding the joint between each blade and the rotor housing with 5-minute epoxy. It helped for a while, but they still broke when I moved the model.

In the end, after displaying it at a few shows, losing pitot tubes and other greeblies from the moves, and constantly broken rotor blades, I had enough. It was too big for my display space, and taking up storage space in my workshop, so I finally (gasp!) binned it.

This kit is underway for me, I am just about to start painting it. Some initial thoughts.

Kit is overall pretty average, much to be desired for the detail-oriented but a good kit nonetheless. It's nice to see many schematics available to build future kits from different countries, different production models, etc. I am building mine to be the Chinese Mi-171 per the three options given by Hobby Boss.

Here's where I've spent most of the time so far on this kit:

-sink holes in crew and rear cabin are VERY frustrating. Some occur on a curve in the plastic, making it very tough to fill and then re-sand. Others occur in between raised panels such as in the ceiling. These sections of panels are only 2-3cm x 2-3cm equidistant, so these are even more difficult to patch and sand. I opted to do my best but leave the cabins closed, as there isn't much to show off without aftermarket PE, which I am not using.
-instruments are crude and need reworking, same with seats. Everything in the cockpit needs work and has poor details.
-poor execution of side and rear cabin window mounts. Hobby Boss has made the windows so that they are glued in from the inside, which of course means that there is a huge area that sticks out which serves as the contact portion to glue onto the doors and walls. The windows are NOT flush fit and leave much to be desired.
-fuel tanks needed extra work to achieve continuous lines
-engine and air intake areas needed much sanding and filling, worst fit of anything so far on this model
-wheels must be sanded down and completely re-scribed
-exterior detail is molded into the half shells along seam lines, you end up filing these off. I wish Hobby Boss would have just made these details on the sprue sheet to glue on after you are done fitting the two shells

Rating: 3.8/5

@Bernhard: Thanks for the congrats! There are some weaknesses that I don´t like. For example the PE window frames and the grinding dust inside of the windows.

Das linke Fenster ist nicht ganz zu, daher wäre ein folgender Versuch wert: Schraube anstelle der Airbrush eine Kanüle an den Schlauch an. Der Schaft der Kanüle müsste ein wenig zurechtgeschnitzt werden. 0,7 mm und so lang wie es geht. Dann mit 1,5 - 2 bar drauf und Versuch den Staub wegzupusten. Die Kanüle kannst du biegen um um die Ecke zu pusten. Hat bei mir oft funktioniert. B

Danke, aber der Staub ist durch das Wasser vom Nasschleifen angebackt. Da müsste ich schon über das Fenster wischen denke ich...

Staub innen auf den Frontscheiben hatte ich auch schon - ich hab's dann mit einem mehrfach gewinkelten Microbrush wegbekommen. Damit hab ich auch schon Kleberausblühungen wegbekommen. Dazu muss man den Microbrush nur in Clear/Future, oder was man auch sonst zur Behandlung von Klarsichtteilen verwendet, tunken.

Of course... the rocket pods are in no way a masterpiece, neither my work on them nor -and especially- Zvezdas plastic pieces for them. The best that can be said about them is that the may be removed very easily :) Eventually they will be exchanged for a resin version some day.

For me to make a model respecting the details its important but also its to make one with a real story behind. So please let me give you one "Top Congrats!" for such nice work and by shure that all of us enjoy watch it.
Superb Job!!

Well, things that hapends..
I recently watched your post on Flankers-site.co.uk and I found your (Mil Mi-8 family) interesting article.
And looking to the whole well done work that you've made I just come and watch Scalerotors to take a closer look at, and give high five for its.
I find very meticulous and fine job on every singe superb "Mil Mi" that you´ve done.
Congrats!!!

So, making progress! Since the side doors and the loading ramp are going to be open, I want to detail the cargo bay as much as I can.

nice work indeed... I shall watch this indeed. want to buy the Mi-10K from Amodel .. your quality build on this will inspire me to drop the $$$ and buy the giant sky crane..
Good job so far Xenia... :)

Xenia V.
Thanks Dean! Mi-10, wow... that would be a daunting build what with all those spindly legs and struts and whatnot!!

Got some more work done today - finished the floor of the cargo area. Added the black dashed line using spare number decals cut up, and weathered the floor. In a pack of cheap eyeshadow I found some browns and yellows that look just awful from a make-up point of view but look just right for weathering, so used those, plus the black from a Tamiya Weathering Master package to dirty up the cargo floor.

Very nice Xenia, I like the improvisation with the eyeshadow for weathering. that's thinking outside the box indeed. but it sounds like the results worked.

Nice.................

Xenia V.
Thanks, guys! :)
And yes - this eyeshadow thing is one I'm going to add to my regular repertoire. Perhaps amongst those super low-end packs there could be some blues or oranges that would be useful on exhaust cans (like in the Tamiya package)... and I could get like 10 of those for the price of one Tamiya pack!

I added a couple of small panels (the white square from .005" sheet and the little black one is a decal) and the hose part of the fire extinguisher... I think I can call the forward wall finished now. I've also continued work on the ceiling - painted it, and put 'o' decals to represent the flush-mounted light fixtures... I think they'll look okay once everything is closed up.

Nice work so far! I was once lucky enough to get a ride on one of Czech AF Mi-171Sh - really cool helicopter!

Xenia V.
Thanks, Seb! I'm envious - that sounds like it was great fun! Only thing I ever got a ride in was a CP-140 back in 1991 or 1992...

Mit der Mi-8T habe ich noch zusammen gearbeitet, als sie noch als SAR (Holzdorf) flog. Ebenso mit der Mi-2 aus Bad Saarow/Brandenburg.

This is very confusing. We have now two separated topics: 'Mil Mi-8 Hip' and 'Mil Mi-17 Hip'; but many products (starting with kits) are labeled as 'Mi-8 / Mi-17'.
I think it would be better to merge both topics in one: 'Mil Mi-8/17 Hip'
