From the very first sight of it, Sergey Antokins‘s scale model of a Mi-171 helicopter charmed me with its neat design. Its structure is skillful enough to surprise you with a couple of unusual building techniques, but at the same time, stays clean and straightforward and looks totally like a slightly refurbished LEGO City set. I give bonus points for this pleasing white and blue color scheme — we finally have a model of a civilian aircraft to blog!
The model includes a crew of two pilots and offers a couple of nice play features like a sliding door on the right side and a cargo door in the back of the hull.
Dozens of detailed pictures are waiting to be faved in the builder’s album on Flickr!
