Excellent stuff!  :)  I'm just left wondering why they didn't display the Mil 17 with a full load out?  ;D

I'm curious to see if anyone attempts to model the Mi-26 one in plastic.

Good stuff!  :) The Mi-26 in particular. I mean, they had wings on the Mi-6, why not go a step further and put engines on them for a Halo? Wonder whether Mil thought about this?

If you load that particular Mi-17's racks with drop tanks, you could embark on the first non-stop round-the-world helo flight.  ;D
Cheers,
