MI-24 Hind completed 600 size

Here is my 600 size MI-24 Hind F depicted in a camo scheme common to Afghanistan circa 1982. I had to scratchbuild the rocket pods, guns and other small items. The machine has flown twice before final painting. I hope to have a video of it in the air soon now that the painting is completed.
best wishes,
jeff

Glad to see one finished product by final consumer.

Watch them rocket pods during landing.

Thanks guys for the nice words!
Here is the maiden of the completed model this morning. Spent the first couple of minutes getting it trimmed. Also tried the retracts successfully. Have to put a little more expo on the tail for the next flight, but was very happy with the first flight of the completed machine.

Very nice model... Only 2 questions.

Why is the back landinggear so low.
As Stenz28 asked... Which manufacturer is it from.

I am not sure of the manufacturer, I bought it from RC Aerodyne. The back landing gear are low because I used a little bit smaller tire than was included with the kit, however the real Hind sits at a fairly similar angle on the ground.

Good Job Jeff. It's a TFModel/SmartModel Hind if you got it from RCAerodyne.
