Mil Mi-8/17/171 Hip...

...Scale Plans No 63, from MMP Books

Title:  Mil Mi-8/17/171 Hip

Author: Dariusz Karnas

Publisher:  MMP

ISBN:  978-83-65958-56-3

Number 63 in their Scale Plans series, and this one is timed to coincide with the publication of their Yellow Series book on the same subject.
Four large, fold-out sheets in this one, holding more fine scale plans from Dariusz Karnas, this time all in 1/72 scale. There are side (both left and right) and plan vews of each variant, from the earlier Mi-8S, the armed Mi-8TV, the Mi-8PPV with side mounted aerials and then an unarmed Mi-17. The final page carries the drawings for the Mi-171, the newest variant of the design, with a different shape to the nose, and the rear clamshell doors to the cargo compartment replaced with a single large ramp.
Useful to add even more to their Yellow series book on the Mil Mi-8 and another useful guide for modellers, in whatever scale.
 

Thanks to MMP Books, who kindly provided my review copy.
