Maks posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingUH-46D Sea Knight US Navy (2) by [Maks], on Flickr Good morning. After 3,5 year hiatus I would like to present my newest creation. It's good ol' Boeing Vetrol helicopter, "the smaller Chinook", CH-46 Sea Knight. Here in UH (utility version) as used by US Navy in 60s and 70s. Here you can see the exact color scheme I tried to mimic: This model was almost entirely bulit during spring of 2017. But then DA came and I was unable to find time and motivation to buy some needed parts and finish it. But here it is, the big moment for this heli!

SVERDLOVSK '86 In 1986, the confrontation between the two superpowers reached its climax and turned into the third world war. Nuclear strike razed to the ground dozens of major cities on the continents turning them into a lifeless desert. Millions of tons of radioactive dust raised into the air by the powerful explosions that led to large-scale environmental disaster. The remnants of humanity were thrown back in the development for centuries, and leading a losing battle for survival. Spiral of evolution on Earth has completed its turn and start a new one ... One of the places where you can meet the survivors became Sverdlovsk. This city with a million people was once the main administrative, industrial and cultural center of the Urals. Perhaps being in the interior of the continent away from the object of the main attack saved it. SVERDLOVSK by vir-a-cocha, on Flickr A handful of survivors settled on the right bank of the dry river Iset in the former building of the circus. The unique design of the dome withstood the shock wave. A second preserved building is unfinished TV Tower maden from the heavy-duty concrete. It was not finished in time of peace, and construction stopped at around 219m. SVERDLOVSKby vir-a-cocha, on Flickr Now, it's just concrete structures buried under the dust . The right bank of the Iset River, between the streets of Kuybysheva, 8-go Marta and the Dekabristov, and all the buildings are made in the scale of 1:2000. (geotaged) SVERDLOVSK by vir-a-cocha, on Flickr Somewhere in another reality ... In 1986, a meeting of Gorbachev and Reagan in Reykjavik, which marked the beginning of a new foreign policy of the USSR. From this moment the relations between the countries have warmed. In Soviet Union Perestroika has began, then another serie of events occured during which the Soviet Union ceases to exist. Sverdlovsk in 1991, was renamed into Ekaterinburg. Circus, located on the corner of Kuibysheva Str and March 8 Str, continues to delight children and their parents. The famous TV tower was never completed. After 1989 began construction financing shortages, and it was frozen. In 90s the tower was a popular place for suicides, adventurers, climbers and BASE jumpers. After a series of resonant accidents access to it was closed. Video aerial view shows the beauty of the center of modern Ekaterinburg. youtu.be/PoWjtfDNAB0
