Cheers chaps, I may add more if I find something suitable. I do have an MI-8 (still boxed) to chuck into the mix.

Here's one of the BMP-2s:

That's a great book, have a hunt for Executive Outcomes: Against All Odds by Eeben Barlow.

I still have an Mi-8 and some more troops to go with this project, but as it's 1990's I'm not sure if it's still ok to post stuff...?

Going to try and finish off this project, had the Mi-8 languishing for a while, but just bagged the Hind on eBay.
Will try to get them done at the same time.  I'm going to try to use magnets for the rotors to aid storage, could be messy...

Fantastic work ....the overall effect with the paintwork and basing is spot on. I just ordered some RLI and a few generic militia to see what they paint up like. Really useful and really interesting post.

Ash, you could either leave off the rotors all together or pin a couple of the blades so transport and storage becomes easier? Complete rotorsets are so damn fragile.

I think effectively it'll be rotors off. I do want to make up the rotor assembly, then implant some little magnets, for some hypothetical moment when I want them on. For some reason everything I've made with rotors so far sets my daughter's cat off, the ensuing destruction tends to cause sense of humour failure...

Here's one I did earlier.

Yup, thats how I do the props on my propellor aircraft as well. Small helos are not a problem, but bigger ones might be. (Hip sized)
