BUMPER HIND DECAL COLLECTION
Begemot’s new 1/72 decal pack for the Mi-24P/Mi-35P helicopter offers more than 50 schemes!
If you have 1/72 Hind gunships in your stash – in particular the ‘P’ sub-type with twin GSh-30 guns – you’ll be spoilt for choice with Begemot’s new decal collection…72-068 Mi-24P ‘Two Barrels Shotgun Hind’ family (3). With a grand total of 51 airframes covered, across two large and one small decal sheets, there’s something here for even the pickiest Hind fan, and especially if you are building a batch and want to explore different air arms.
Soviet/Russian machines are included as you’d expect, but other users include East Germany, Ukraine, Peru (this option sports a substantial sharkmouth), Ecuatorial Guinea, Myanmar, Cyprus, Belarus, Nigeria, Hungary, Djibouti, Turkmenistan, Syria, Indonesia and Abkhazia.
The camouflage schemes differ widely, and there is even two specially marked display machines from the Russian Golden Eagles demonstration team, with smart red/white/blue trim over the usual camouflage tones.
This selection covers a long timespan too, so you get Cold War Hinds as well as later helicopters, and besides the air arm markings, you also get extensive stencils for Soviet/Russian weaponry such as the AA-8 Aphid missile, FAB/OFAB bombs, UB rocket pods and UPK-23 gun pod.
Although the price for these decals is yet to be announced, they will be available soon in the UK via Hannants: www.hannants.co.uk
