AH-1W Cobra.

Recommended Posts

Hello! 

 

This is my Italeri/MRC 1/35 AH-1W COBRA. I added some scratched details to the cockpit and crewed it with a D-Toys resin figure in the forward position and my own figure built from spares in the rear position. Other mods included detail painting the instrument panels, drilling out the cannon barrel's , adding wiring, boxes and harness's etc. I also used decals from Two Bobs Aviation Graphics to depict a Whiskey Cobra from HML/A-167 "WARRIORS" USMC.

 

I painted it with Tamiya acrylics and for the weathering I made use of AK Interactive's panel liner washes, with some artists oils. I know this one is not dead accurate, but I wanted to make do with what I had in the toolbox, so to speak! 

 

Here are some photo's I wanted to share with you....

 

Happy Modelling!

 

Darren.

Superb Cobra Darren. This is coming from a former Cobra driver! I flew Army single engine versions in OD. (Rather boring scheme). The Marines have use their -W versions with great success for years. Love the out come.

 

Well done Darren.

Thanks, Darren! Do you have versions of them without the faux frame?

Sorry Kev, I don't have them to hand. I can crop them later if that helps you.
