Revell - Mi-24V Hind E

I believe that there is no need to tell something about the full-size Hind.

 The Zvezda kit, now reboxed also by Revell of Germany, is the best kit of the Mi-24 available throughout. The kit is accurate and has a HUGE amount of details: Fully equipped cockpit and rear cabin, optional crew and rear cabin access door positions, gearbox and engine and optional colwing positions, heat supressors, flare dispensers and everything you need for a correct Hind. Even characteristic the anti-torque distortion of the whole fuselage is correctly represented. 

The stub wing weaponry consists of B-8W-20-A unguided missile pods, auxiliary fuel tank, UPK-23-25 cannon pod and 9M114 "Schturm" guided missiles for the outer ends.

Decals are provided for an attractive current tiger scheme of the Czech AF and a Russian AF aircraft stationed in the former GRD in tan and green camouflage.

Decals for:
  • Mi-24V, Czech Air Force, 221th Attack Helicopter Sqn., Namst nad Ostlavou, Czech Republic 2011.
  • Mi-4V, Russian VVS, 337. OVBP, Mahlwinkel, German 1993. 
Strong points:
  • wonderful level of detail
  • comprehensive kit
  • nice decal sheet
  • excellent clear parts
  • vale-for-money-aspect
Weak points:
  • some minor fitting issues were reported with the cockpit-main fuselage-intersection

Summary:

One can ask if this kit is somewhat "overengineered" with this sheer amount of parts - very well done Zvezda and well done Revell with the decals.
