1/144 Mi-4A & Mi-4AV (2 in 1) / Mi-4A & Mi-4AP (2 in 1) - Eastern Express

1/144 Mi-4A & Mi-4AV (2 in 1) /  Mi-4A & Mi-4AP (2 in 1)   - Eastern Express
We seem to be awash with small helicopter kits at present, with Marks 1s Wessex Series, Eastern Express are also in the midst of releasing a series of mits based around the Mi-4a

The Mi-4 was designed in response to the American H-19 Chickasaw and the deployment of U.S. helicopters during the Korean War. While the Mi-4 superficially resembles the H-19 Chickasaw, it is a larger helicopter and is able to lift more weight. The first model entered service in 1952, and replaced the Mi-1

Mi-4A - Assault transport helicopter.
Mi-4AV - Armed versions based on the Mi-4A.

Mi-4P / Mi-4VP  Civil transport helicopter, with accommodation for between 8 and 11 passengers, plus eight stretchers and a medical attendant for air ambulance duties.

Release Date: Dec 2014  (Well, it depends, some territories have it already, others coming soon)
