Sky High 1/72 Mil Mi-2
Following their initial Mi-1, the Mil OKB began to examine the use of turbine engines in their helicopters. The result was the Mi-2, which was powered by two Isotov GTD-350 turbine engines. Following the initial development in the Soviet Union, the entire production of the Mi-2 shifted to the Polish PZL firm in Świdnik. Production began in the mid-1960s and did not end until 1985, after roughly 7200 were built.
For a 1/72 Mi-2, this is the only game in town, as pretty much all the other kits out there are reboxings of the same plastic. The molds have held up quite well, though, and a very nice helicopter can be made up from this kit. My thanks to Scale Model Kits for the review sample.
