Monogram 1/48 AH-1S Cobra
August 5, 2014 in Aviation
Here’s a build that’s 15-20 years old but I had never taken it to the airport until last Thursday. It’s the old Monogram kit from 1986 and mine is painted in Israeli livery. It’s pretty much OOB but I did add a bit of screening to the turbine vents and made a couple sets of map that are stowed beside the seats.
This kit suffered the only damage in transit to the airport out of five different aircraft traveling. The rotor is not attached and it fell off and knocked the cable cutter off the top of the cockpit, easily seen in these pics. Oh well, the photo shoot must go on! The locale is the Coffield Regional Airport in Rockdale, Texas. The old hangar in these pics dates back to WWII so I’m told. Thanks for taking a look!
Here’s a link to a slideshow with a few more pics:
