Linden Hill 1/72 Mi-24R (RKhR) Hind G1 Conversion First Look
|Date of Review||November 2006||Manufacturer||Linden Hill|
|Subject||Mi-24R (RKhR) Hind Conversion||Scale||1/72|

|Pros||A unique conversion for the Hasegawa kit||Cons|
|Skill Level||Intermediate||MSRP (USD)||$TBA|
Here is an exclusive and quite unique modification to the Hasegawa 1/72 Mi-24 Hind helicopter kit. This set provides the parts for the new sensors and tools for the Nuclear, Biological, Chemical (NBC) reconnaissance helicopter variant that was first observed after the 1986 Chernobyl accident.
The instructions walk you through the deletion of the undernose gun and sensors, the deletion of the underwing armament, and the installation of the new parts. These include:
- Air Conditioning Intake
- Equipment Pod
- Excavators (2)
- Hydraulic Bays (2)
- Starboard Door
- Vacuformed Bubble Observer Window for new Starboard Door
- Chaff Dispenser
This set is produced for Linden Hill by Heliborne in Moscow.
This set will take the nice out-of-the-box Hasegawa Hind kit and transform it into the more ominous 'Weapons of Mass Destruction' reconnaissance aircraft.
My sincere thanks to Linden Hill Imports for this review sample!
