Monogram AH-1F Cobra, 4th Squadron, 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment, Desert Storm 1991
Hello All! I meant to post this one last year when I posted my USMC Cobra, as I built them simultaneously but then time got away from me...
Anyways, this is the Revell of Germany boxing of the old Monogram Cobra, built ALMOST OOB, with the only addition being the engine inlet filters from Werner's Wings, and a scratch-built landing light on the skid. Paint and decals represent a bird from N troop, 4/2 ACR during desert storm.
This build went mostly to plan, aside from some stray and excessive liquid cement on the clear bits that I didn't see until after i pulled the masking off...gggrrrrr! Still, this is an awesome, inexpensive and well detailed kit right out of the box, and I highly recommend it to everyone. I would gladly build another myself!
