SMER MIL Mi-8 Hip SAR
Posted by PatrickW on Tuesday, April 16, 2019 4:11 PM

Built box stock although the instructions are pretty vague. I then Googled the real thing to get close ups of particular part positions. I don't build many helicopters so although they suggest building the rotor assembly OK, but don't fit it until everything else is done including the decals. There is a full interior, and four choices of this subject on the decal sheet.

The stat that it is the third most popular helicopter purchase in the world was a surprise. Its a versatile machine.
