I wouldn't want to mess with this Guy. This is Hobby Boss's Mi-2URP, presented in Polish markings. Mostly an OOB build, with some scratch built pylon supports and extra rotor head details. I scratch built a new center intake, and added a lens for the landing light.  Good all round fit of the parts. This version has the door guns.

I used Model Master O. D. green, and did a light weathering job with powdered pencil lead and Sharpie markers. 

The national insignia gave me some problems, having to be applied over two large vents. I used all six of the supplied decals, cutting them carefully so they covered the area without distortions. Dull-coat sealed everything nicely.
