MI-28 model in 1/72 scale
The Mil Mi-28, NATO code name " Havoc"
was a Soviet counterpart of the US Apache, developed in the eigthies. It
never came into large scale production as Kamov came with a competitor
and there is a lack of funding.
a 1/72 kit in 1989, NO. 0389.
The model is a fine representation of the real thing, with the exception of the tailrotor.
The real tailrotor consist of two
separate blades, so cut loose and add a aixle.
The rotorhead can be detailed with some hydraulic pipes and the kit's instructions in stage 5 shows the lag dempers at the wrong side! The rotormast can be painted light grey.
The tail wheel should be replaced by a thicker one; also the same applies for the main wheels that are too thin. The gun can be detailed.
Revell supplies lots of "stores", but the decals for the red rotortips are a bit "too thin" in backing.
