    Hello my friends. I tis my pleasure to introduce to all of you another project from Jan Rükr (Alien) and myself :) Last 3 months we were working on something really special and I Believe that you will love it.

    It was a lot of paperwork and finally (the last 3 weeks) the painting itself. Jan did an amazing job on our MI-24 helicopter and today the beast has left the lair and head for the tiger meet 2016 in Zaragoza. I would like to thank to all of the participants and to apologize to all modelers :p This is our flagship… the mighty ALIEN TIGER !!!

    Wedge,

    Damn, this is unbelivably A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I knew that the master of the Astro Racer and the creator of Mega huge Nostromo model Jan, was talented but I had no idea. WOW!!:surprise:

    OK I'll just shut up now a keep staring. Maybe I'll get a rubber band to clamp my jaw shut so I don't drool on the floor.

    Inspiring!! This is what I call motivational!:bowdown::bowdown::bowdown::bowdown:

    That is a great honor to have your military let you guys do this. It also says a lot about your military, willing to use it's weapons for good cause, fun, and for the people. It shows just how cool The Czech Republic is, recognizing it's genius Artists, and letting them do this. I honestly believe this is one of the coolest things I have seen. How could that not win!! You've got my vote!! :)

    This is crazy - Imagine when somebody make model of mi-24 with this camo and will be saying this it replica of the real army vehicle. Would you believe that? I would definitely not.:animated:

    I am tempted to do it. I always liked look and design of Mi-24 and wanted to have model of it, but never did. So this could be good opportunity to build it.

    So technicaly this does not even belong to this scifi and fantasy category. Oh men, this is very REAL :))

    Now THIS is a quite a "model"! :)

    When I read, "1:1 scale", I first thought, Jesus, that must be insane. Or a typo. ( :D ) When I clicked the link to the thread and saw the first pictures, I made "AHHHH" and drooled over every one of it. ;)

    Awesome work, guys! The result is unique and so astonishing. I am sure there are many people standing in front of it in awe. Major kudos to a very fine job!

    I'd love to see the beast in action, maybe in a little video? (hint, hint) :)
