    Allan, grabbing this “blast from the past” takes courage, but it seems you have it going smoothly. Are the decals from 1988 also???

  • Allan J Withers said 1 month ago:

    Thank you Pedro, yes original decals, will replace some with paint and check these for quality !!

    Nice looking Cobra Allan !!! Somehow it managed to fly under my radar…………… I just noticed it. When I was a kid, I built the exact same model. They came as a pair of Cobra’s in the box, (and it was the Monogram box). I’m pretty sure it would have been from 1977…………… This was what I wanted to fly !!!! Sadly it didn’t happen………….. my left eye kept me out of flight school…….. 🙁

    I just found it over at Scalemates…………… It was released 1973. The boxing was Monogram kit #6839, and two models were in the same box. This also reminded me of the larger 1/32 scale Cobra I built as a kid that was a Revell kit.
