AH-1F cobra

This Monograms A-H1F cobra in Operation Desert Storm colors. You might recognize this from my fathers AH-1F. We used the same decals and kit but I cut out the canopy door on the gunners seat so you can see the interior. I had a lot of fun with this model and only had one problem with it and that was sanding the exhaust. Can I have some tips for my next helicopters please?

  1. Doesn’t appear to me that you NEED any “tips” – that turned out just fine as far as I can see. Nice job, my friend.

  2. Good looking model.

  3. It’s always great to see a chopper here, Oliver. Your Cobra looks terrific and it does look very shark like. The likeness to the real thing is impressive…

  4. Nicely done Oliver, it really looks the part.

  5. Snakebite ! Really well done, Oliver !

  6. Oliver, nicely done! I know a retired WO Cobra pilot who was in Desert Storm. He said they used Sears housepaint on theirs, I forget which color. Field expedient!

  7. Did a great job on an older model. Awesome!

  8. Thanks for all the support guys, really appreciate it
