1/48 H-21C Shawnee “Flying Banana” (Italeri)
Italieri Model Kit
Stock: Very Low
Warning! This model kit allows you to create the “base” of a dustified unit. It wasn’t produced by Dust Studio and can be more complicated or different quality than you are used to. It can only be a base to more “dustification” with weapon spruces and model elements from the game itself, or will create a separate unit usable in the game. It’s made in 1/48 which is the scale used on all Dust 1947 models.
“CH-21 Workhorse/Shawnee is an American helicopter. Commonly called “the flying banana”, it was a multi-mission helicopter, utilizing wheels, skis, or floats.”
Introduction of helicopters allowed allied commanders to use their infantry in much more effective ways. Quick maneuver, rapid deployment to endangered front-line part – all of these were impossible or much harder using paratroopers.
Military doctrines utilizing these new machines are still being worked on – but it’s clear now that they will have an important place on future battlefield.
In this set you will find a classic scale model set, recommended for experienced modelers. As the set is not a Dust Studio product the card for it can be found in Dust Enslist application.
