SakisG Posted January 28, 2020 Share Posted January 28, 2020 Hello. My second submission in the forum is the AH-1G Cobra from Special Hobby. It’s a good scale model with the recessed panel lines bit on the heavy side and with a lot of armament. In the box there are items that allow to build other versions too. I had the Marine version but I wanted to do the Army one so I used the decals for the specific chopper from the AZ model. “Sound of Silence” was the Cobra that CW2 Jim Moran and WO1 Neil MacMilan used in one of the longest missions of war, maintaining the extraction at night and in bad weather of an LRRP team that was surrounded by a large NVA unit. (US ARMY AH-1 COBRA UNITS IN VIETNAM by Jonathan Bernstein, Osprey Combat Aircraft 41). It is built out of the box with the only modification seat belts from Tamiya tape and air intakes from Brengun because Special Hobby’s are wrong… see the photo. Thank’s for looking.
