Son of Cobra II

June 28, 2013 in Aviation

Cobra II underwent several modifications including an engine change to the V-1710-143/145(G6). This engine was developed for the P-82 Twin Mustang. Charles “Chuck” Brown, an Allison test pilot, flew the re-named Cobra KF-1 in the 1948 Thompson, and established a close-course qualification record of 418 mph, but did not complete the race.

  1. Another neat Cobra racer. This bird looks real good in color.

  2. Wow….even “snazzier” than the first one you posted – nice!

  3. Jack,
    I really like what you have done here. You have made a model of a good looking airplane look fabulous. Great work.

  4. Great job on a wonderful and unusual subject! I have a real soft spot for warbirds in civilian service. I enjoy your choice of the very seldom seen post ’46 Cobra II history.
