1/72 Zvezda Soviet Helix D Rescue HelicopterZVE-7247
Was designed by the Kamov Design Bureau in the late seventies for the Soviet Navy, its main objectives being the hunt for enemy submarines, rescue, and general naval surveillance.
Equipped with Kamov's characteristic co-axial counter-rotating rotors, the Ka-27, NATO code-name "Helix," was designed to replace the smaller Kamov Ka-25 "Hormone" in Soviet Navy service.
Zvezda has released the air-sea rescue Ka-27PS version. This kit has the surface-search radome, a rescue winch, fuselage-mounted fuel tanks, and a molded-shut rear cargo hatch.
