Mil Mi-24 Hind Standard Soviet
camouflage set is designed and based on the standard Soviet and later Russian paint scheme that was used on the attack helicopter. Mi-24s used in Afghanistan during Soviet-Afghan war in the 80s were painted mostly in similar manner. Many of the foreign clients of Mil Mi-24 flew the helicopter in that scheme as well. Due to its spotted appearance, this camouflage pattern allows for interesting weathering techniques, especially for the Mi-24s that were used in desert conditions – Afghanistan, Africa, Middle East. Since the appearance of Mil Mi-24 Hind, this is considered one of the standard paint patterns.
Mi-24 in 35th scale
is available from Trumpeter. The kit is very popular on the market and is considered relatively accurate release despite some minor geometry issues. Those concern mostly the tail boom. The kit is the only 35th scale kit of the Hind on the market and many variations are possible due to aftermarket products available. This camouflage is perfectly suitable for Mil Mi 24 Hind kit. The size and shape of the spots allow for various modifications and are easily adjusted. Due to the flexibility of the masks, this set can be used more than once if applied and removed with care. Various weathering techniques can be used to alter the appearance of this pattern, since this is one of the oldest ones in use. Thus old and worn helicopters can be replicated with ease, especially concerning the spots.
