Mil Helicopter's Mi-1

Mi-1 modeled in SU7.

The Mi-1 was the first of many iconic helicopters produced by Russia's Mil Helicopter Plant. Movie enthusiasts may be familiar with the Mil Mi-24 gunship in Rambo 3, seen menacing the protagonist throughout the mountains of Afghanistan.

Revisiting the Mi-1 seemed the best way to explore many aspects of Mil's signature architecture carried forward into their later designs. Concerning the model itself, the difficulty of shaping the body in SU7 was made easier once again with Fredo6's CurviLoft plug-in.
