First Look

If you're looking to add a little more detail to the front end of the HobbyBoss 1/72 Mi-24V Hind kit, here is an impressive bit of resin casting that will meet your needs. This intricate casting replaces the main wheels as well as the main gear well in the kit.

Mi-24V Gear Well

Take a look at that detailing! The tires have nice tread cast into the parts, and the interior of that wheel well is very nice! The corrugated/dented surface of the top of the wheel well used for structural strength is nicely captured as is all of the plumbing inside the edges of the well. The part drops into the Hobby Boss kit, and I am thinking it might be adaptable to the Hasegawa Hinds as well.

If you want to accurize your HobbyBoss Hind, Pavla has the parts to get the job done!

My sincere thanks to Pavla Models for this review sample.
