That's OUTSTANDING Thomas, one of your very best.  :thumbsup:

And the backstory's just amazing too.  ;D ;)
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Thank you. I did a lot of legwork, and a dedicated book about current Russian attack helicopters (Mi-24, Mi-28, Ka50/52) helped a lot, even though there are some historic inconsistencies. But if it reads well and keeps the reader's attention, I have accomplished my whiffing mission.  ;)
I just have to add some technical data, it is not complete yet.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Another fantastic model!
Owing to the current financial difficulties, the light at the end of the tunnel will be turned off until further notice.
