Paper model of Mi-24 helicopter

The paper model of the Mi-24 helicopter- (according to NATO classification: Hind - "Lan") - a Soviet / Russian transport and combat helicopter developed by the design bureau of M. L. Mil.

Materials and tools:

  1. scissors, paper knife, drawing ruler
  2. tweezers;
  3. glue brushes and paint;
  4. watercolors (or pencils), toothpicks;
  5. clear acrylic glue ("Moment", etc.);
  6. to print the model matte photo paper with a density of 170-180 g / m2;
  7. for small parts - 70-80 g / m2.

Build Tips:

  1. Before you assemble the part, read the drawings and instructions. Determine the place of each part and imagine its assembly;
  2. Make holes in details before cutting out the part;
  3. Cut only the part (s) you need right now. Unpacked items in a box, and unused sheets in a closed folder (as an option). Throwing out trash after work, carefully inspect the scrap paper;
  4. for the best bending of the part, it is necessary to draw a ruler along the fold line, slightly pressing,the blunt side of a knife or a toothpick so as not to damage the surface of the paper. Better to do it from the wrong side of the part;
  5. Keep your fingers clean and be sure to use wipes to wipe your hands, because hands may get dirty in the process;
  6. wind up cylindrical parts before gluing onto a round object of a suitable diameter, this will give them shape;
  7. Before gluing it is necessary to paint the ends of the part. White crop lines spoil the overall look of the model. To paint the ends, use watercolors or gouache paints. After selecting the desired color, apply them in a thin layer, then allow the paint to dry. About markers better to forget;
  8. Take your time with gluing. First, cut out the part, paint it from the end, wait for the paint to dry, assemble the part. Attach it to the place where it should be to make sure everything is done correctly. And only then stick. Do not forget to let the glue dry.

A bit of history

Mi-24 Helicopter

Mi-24 (according to NATO classification: Hind - "Lan") - Soviet / Russian transport and combat helicopter developed by the Design Bureau M. L. Mil.

He became the first Soviet and second in the world (after the AH-1 Cobra) specialized combat helicopter. Serial production began in 1971. It has many modifications, exported to many countries around the world. It was actively used during the years of the Afghan war, during the fighting in Chechnya, as well as in many regional conflicts. Produced at OJSC Rostvertol (Earlier - RVPO).

The unofficial name is "Crocodile". Helicopters of the early editions were also called “Glass” - because of the flat glass of the cockpit, causing associations with the edges of the faceted glass.

The development of the design of the product "240" (B-24) began after the issuance of the Decree of the Council of Ministers of the USSR and the Central Committee of the CPSU on May 6, 1968 in the Design Bureau of M. L. Mil. Experienced machines (OP-1 and OP-2) were ready in a year. Much of the components and assemblies was unified with the Mi-8 and Mi-14.

An experienced helicopter had a common front double cabin (the so-called "veranda") with dual controls. The crew consisted of a pilot and an operator. Later, a flight mechanic was added to the crew. In the middle of the helicopter was a cargo cabin, which can accommodate up to 8 people. On the right and left sides of the cargo compartment there were double doors with upper and lower doors.The opening windows were equipped with pivoting installations for conducting fire during the flight from personal weapons. Both cabins are sealed, with supercharged engines.

From the very beginning, the crew’s equipment included specialized flight armor and body armor. Cab booking is represented by front armored glass, armored crew seats, local armored plates on the sides of the cabin and on engine hoods.

Due to the unavailability of the Sturm armament complex, it was decided to install the K4V complex of the Mi-4 helicopter — the Phalanx-M rocket with the manual guidance system and the machine gun NUV-1 with the A-12.7 machine gun; four beam holders for NUR or free-falling bombs.

Factory testing began on September 15, 1969 (test pilot G. V. Alferov). Immediately began the construction of an experimental series of ten helicopters. At the end of 1970, two cars refined - to improve stability at speeds exceeding 200 km / h, a wing with a negative V 12 minus 12 degrees and an elongated cabin were installed on the helicopter. The first production helicopters Mi-24A (product "245"), made in this form and equipped with the Phalanga-M complex, were sent for trial operation to the troops.

Mi-24A were built by the plant in the city of Arsenyev.Almost 250 machines were manufactured, which were used by the army aviation structures to be formed, into separate helicopter regiments of the joint-arms armies of the combined arms and assault brigades. On the basis of the Mi-24A, an educational modification of the Mi-24U (ed. "244") with full dual control was developed.

Mi-24B (ed. "241") received a new machine-gun installation USPU-24 with a YakB-12.7 machine gun (4500 rpm), the "Phalanga-P" missile system. But the development of the helicopter was suspended and major changes were made - the cabin was converted into a tandem, tail rotor with a reducer installed from the Mi-14 - the propeller from the pushing became pulling, which dramatically improved the efficiency of the track control. The helicopter was named "Mi-24V", or the product "242". But due to the unfounded complex "Storm" helicopters with a new cabin had to equip the type of Mi-24B, and this "intermediate version" went to the series under the designation of the Mi-24D (item "246"). Literu "G" decided not to use … The development of the Mi-24V took 8 years. In 1976, the helicopter was officially accepted for service and built by the most mass series.

Thus, by 1973, the appearance of a helicopter, widely known throughout the world, was formed.
