The Team Yankee model of the Hind helicopter can be built with the landing gear either up or down. Which do you prefer?

I have mine up.

If it's flying, gear up!

Yes if it's the air gear up …

Down, so I can put it on the table when it lands and store it on a shelf between games without worrying about it falling off of its base.

Up or down, down or up?

Sigh. This wouldn't be a problem if the Hind has skids like the Cobra or non-retractable wheels like the Apache.

Good points Scott and 28 … I'm all about model "survivability" on and off the table …

What about 2 models for the one helo, or is that extravagent (surely not a word in the wargaming parlance!)?

with a comment like that i am sure b/front will be quite delighted!

They should make the model with retractable wheels!

I have two old metal Hinds in 1/100 wheels retract
