Hello everyone,

Yesterday I've finished Ka-58 by Revell (well, it;s Zvezda inside).
Nice box, great decals, instruction printed in color, it looked superb OOB. But during construction truth came out. Rough plastic, not matched forms (I mean f.ex. missile halves are postponed to each other). It was tiring job to put togeher this one.
I've made gunsight from few pieces of styrene and used resin K36 seats instead of styrene ones.
Ka-58 is painted in Airwolf-style on purpose :)
I've used Tamyia and Mr.Hobby paints for large surfaces and Ammo Mig range for brush work. Weathering is done with Tamiya pigments and Ammo Mig washes.

 > 1.  Fit, details, finish, weathering leave no hint of kit deficiencies you mentioned.  8)

 > 2.  Looks like most was copied (stolen) from Boeing design we worked on during 1980s.

Looks very nice.

The shape lends itself to other uses as well. 
For example, I see so NOD type Aircraft from Command and Conquer.
Wish I had found this when I started my attempt at the NOD Venom, might have saved bit of scratchbuilding
