|Era:||Word War II|
The AH-1G was the initial version of the iconic Cobra helicopter and had mainly been designed to provide close support to the ground troops. The US military quite quickly realised that what they also need is a weapon system capable of taking on enemy's armoured vehicles and tanks. And most urgent this need was felt in Europe where the danger of Soviet tank forces was almost palpatable. To enable the Cobra to operate in this role the new versions the Q and S were designed and the earlier G airframes were also rebuilt to this new standard. These new machines were armed with TOW anti-tank missiles. The rebuilt ones, however, still featured a few similarities with the earlier G Cobras.
Our model can boast about possesing very nice levels of detail throughout and comes on as many as nine grey styrene sprues and one with clear parts. The decal sheet offers markings to enable the modeller to build one of four machines. Two of these are standard olive-overall US AH-1S Cobras and one of them sports the well-known bunny emblem on its dog-house and the other one flew with the Massachusetts National Guard, then there is one dark green US AH-1Q airframe and lastly also a Turkish Cobra in rather striking camouflage scheme consisting of three colours. excelentní detailní model.
