Here they come! Finally the new Hind Commander miniature sets in 1/600 scale are in Assault Publishing on-line store. They are smaller, more flexible and allow you to compose your Strike group in a more individual way. They are also a very good way of expanding existing Hind Commander collections, as the models come from the same producer (Oddział Ósmy), but the new range brings new possibilities and options.
The models are grouped into 4 main categories:
HCC (26 PLN/set) category groups the stars of the whole show – the helicopters. Most sets consist of 12 helicopters (but there are some exceptions) always in 3 types. For example Soviet/Russian strike set 1 (coded HCC7) consists of 4xMi-24s, 4xMi-28s and 4xKa-50s.
HCU (14 PLN/set) category covers the ground vehicles or artillery pieces and always consists of 9 vehicles/artillery pieces in 3 types.
In HCH (15 PLN/set) category you can find the airplanes: always 6 in 3 types (2 planes per type).
Finally HCJ (14,50 PLN/set) category covers all special models, such as infantry sets or complete SA-2 systems.
