Man... After the Kitty Hawk 1:48 Huey, Seasprite and 1:35 AH-6 and MH60 I had hoped for a kit of something that's not already available….

Well I can always hope, can't I?! 😏

Fantastic news! PLEASE release an Mi-24A - it's never been done in 1/48.

Awesome! I loved the Trumpeter kit but it was just a bit too big for my liking so this would do an absolute treat. Now if only some kind (and extremely talented) soul could also design a set of decals to turn it into the 'Alien' Hind it would be mind blowing!

Yeah, I hope all those don't come out at once as it will be a fortune to invest.

 

Also, perhaps these announcements kick the competition out of their sleep as all these kits are long overdue (e.g. Hobby-Boss should have downscaled Trumpeter's 1/35 Hind and the 1/32 Su-25 a long time ago).

Will the NH-90 and Tigre come with ground crew trying to fix them instead of pilots to make them more realistic 😁

It is not difficult to downscale the 32 model, why Trumpeter never did it?

But Trumpeter 1/35 kit haven' t warping on back. Only accurate kit of Hind is 1/72 Zvezda series. I hope a KH make Hind with over surface rivets and warping fuselage... but i don't understand why Zvezda don' t upscale their nice kit. But thank you KH, their Viper/Venom are nice.

Absolutely Zvezda is the best one but even them omitted two bulbs at the upper surface of the wings.

You're probably right... Hind users used to taste content of this pink bottle and it was quite strong but rather bland... dJiyM7Y.jpg

Well, Andre; my fascination with IPAs was by utter & sheer chance, I guess; one Friday night I returned home to find my sheila was throwing a shindig. The lasses had not only guzzled down all of my Stella Artoises, but also they were playing music the kind of Erasure, Scissors Sisters?, George Michael and stuff on the same Hi-Fi I play my Heavy Metal music! :analintruder: (Outrageous). So, after I kicked everyone out, I saw that there were a couple bottles of IPA brews left in the fridge.

Little did I know how good these were; finished those off and went to fetch some more at the Bottle-O. Drank Stella Artoises ne'er again after that.

Yeh, me didn't...

Cheers,

I did not realize the Mi 8/17 was in their pipeline but am very excited to see it.  Just so many versions and markings that it will be impossible to resist.  And of course I. will need the alien version of the Hind and Aligator too.  I love helecopter models and this whole thread is getting me revved up!

Looking forward to a good kit in 1/48, and agree we need an A model.
