    Product Description
    This is the latest decal sheet from Zotz Decals and features five Mi-25 Hinds in colourful jungle camo schemes used by Peru, Cuba and Nicaragua. The decal sheet is contained on 2 separate decal sheets.
    The Mi-25 "Hind" (as it was nicknamed by NATO) is a premier attack helicopter and one of the best in the world. Its speed and firepower as demonstrated in Afghanistan for the Russian invasion forces earned it the nickname "Devil's chariot". To date it is the fastest military helicopter in the world, with a top speed of 180 knots (335 km/h). Its massive and diverse weapon-carrying capability make it an effective platform for many roles.
    The first Mi-25 Hind's are from Peru. You have a choice of two Peruvian Hinds (#659 and #695). Aircraft # 695 was shot down during a short war with Ecuador that was called the "Alto Cenepa War" in early 1995. Aircraft #695 was shot down on Feb 7/1995 by a SA-17 missile. Colours for the Peruvian Mi-25 Hinds is Gloss Light Tan FS10318, Gloss Brown FS10111 on the upper surfaces and Gloss Pale Blue Gray FS16473 on the undersides.
    The next Mi-25 Hind #12 with the Escuadron 361, 36 Regimiento is from Cuba. I have always enjoyed the colourful blue and white national markings on Cuban aircraft. The top on this machine is painted in a blue and green camo scheme with Light Blue/Grey on the underside. Colours mixing ratios for Humbrol paints is included in the instructions.
    The last two Mi-25 Hinds #359 and #391) are from Nicaragua. Hind #359 has a gloss Brown FS10111 and Gloss Light Tan FS10318 jungle camo on the top with light blue FS16473 on the underside. Hind #391 Gloss Grey Green FS16165 and Matt Light Grey FS365595 on the upper surfaces and Pale Blue Grey FS16473 on the undersurfaces.
    The 3 pages of instructions are clear enough to follow and should prove no problem and include FS #'s to aid in painting as well as colour 4 view drawings about camo and decal placement. This is an very interesting decal sheet with those jungle camo schemes everyone likes so much.

    How to apply water-slide decals:
    1. Preparation: to achieve better result, a gloss or semi-gloss coat is very important. It will make a smooth layer which the decals will suction to and make it much easier to apply and set them.
    2. Cut out the decal you need (do it on cutting mat)
    3. Grab the decal with tweezers, place it on the surface of the water and leave it for about 20 seconds.
    4. Remove the decal from the water and place it on paper towel to remove any excess water.
    5. Apply decal solution to the part where the decal is to be placed.
    6. Slide the decal off the backing paper on to the model. Using a paint brush or cotton bud is a good way to do this without damaging the decal.
    7. Use the brush, knife or cotton bud to position the decal. Using your paper towel, gently dab the decal and soak up the excess water (decal softner is also recommended at this stage. After applying softner, the decal will suction to the part and flatten out smooth.)
    8. When the decal is completely dry, give another coat of varnish or Klear/Future to seal it.
