Mil Mi-24D Canopy, Windows & Wheels Paint Mask set for Trumpeter 1/48th
Suggested scale - 1/48th
Suggested kits - Trumpeter Mi-24D Hind #05812
The set includes one sheet of masks (shown in the picture). The masks are made from thin masking tape, which is easy to be peeled off and doesn’t leave any stains. The tape is tested on clear and painted model too. If carefully removed after painting, they can be used over and over again. Material is flexible and easily applied over curved surfaces. Semi-transparent for easy and accurate placing.
The Mi-24 in 48th scale from Trumpeter is probably the most attractive all-round Mil Mi-24 Hind kit. The larger option that is available is Trumpeter 1/35 and the smaller one is the notorious 72nd scale from Zvezda. Latter one is an award winning release, constantly being repacked and re-released from various manufacturers. The middle ground in between the two scales mentioned above is quarter scale. Size-wise, this is perfect for such large helicopter and best suits most of the modelers’ needs out there. Shortly before the release of Trumpeter Mi-24D in 48th scale, Zvezda released their own variant of the kit. However, surface-wise Trumpeter kit is far better and features contemporary tooling. As with their 35th scale Hind, Trumpeter representations are currently the best on the market.
Mil Mi-24 Canopy and the cockpit are among the most distinctive features of this Mil attack helicopter. Unlike Zvezda who did not put much effort into their clear parts, Trumpeter kit features much more refined plastic material. Being vital for a well-completed model, the large real-estate of the canopy demands clean and fine completion. It is very attractive and often makes the cargo/troops bay irrelevant in scale. Proper painting and representation of the cockpit area is a necessity for any Hind model. This set comes with exterior masks only, including the canopy, windows and the wheels.
