  5. After recently finishing a P-47 in 1/48, and currently planning to join a group Spitfire build starting in a few weeks on the IPMS Ireland website, I thought I'd try and be a latecomer to this GB as I'm keen to build my Monogram AH-1 dating from the late 80s. I started it around 2 weeks ago, and I might get it finished in time for the June deadline! The kit I think has been around since the early 80s and it's pretty simple with a low parts count and raised panel lines. I added some aftermarket in the form of an Eduard mask, a Master 3 barrel gun and some aftermarket decals (which in the end I've decided not to use as I very generously got a sheet of decals from a later Revell boxing of the kit of a Cobra used by the US Army in the first Gulf War. The real "Sand Shark" as seen below is what I'm going to try and recreate: Parts ready for primer: Cockpit completed: Fuselage interior with turbine installed: Fuselage halves joined and skids added, (I used 15g of weight up front to make sure it wasn't a tail sitter): Currently I'm painting the main and tail rotors and then the next job is trying to get the seams sorted out prior to paint (which is going to be hard I think!)
  6. My entry for this GB is going to be based on the venerable old 1/48 Monogram AH-1S Cobra, which despite it's age and raised panel lines is an accurate representation of this classic gunship. Here's a picure of the box top followed by one showing the contents still sealed in the original plastic bag. And here is the decal sheet I will be using from Two Bobs. And a close up of the option I will be using for the decals for my build. Not that I intend to be finishing it like this, I've found something much more unusual, this one! Gotta love that temporary winter camo! I hope to make a start on her this evening and I am really looking forward to the build, there are already some really good models being built for this GB I hope mine grabs your interest as well. Thanks for looking in. Craig.

  8. Hi Everyone! Haven’t been posting a lot this year but now I start to speed up Here is the AZ Models’ AH-1G Huey Cobra flown during Vietnam War. Originally, I planned to do “The Crystal Ship”, but changed my mind having read a thrilling story in Jonathan Bernstein’s book “US Army AH-1 Cobra Units in Vietnam” with the “Sound of Silence” Cobra starring. On the late evening of 21 January 1971 CW2 Jim Moran, who was expecting to go back to the US in just few days , was sitting in the club minding his own business, when battery commanding officer approached him and ordered to help rescuing reconnaissance patrol team that was trapped and surrounded by North Vietnamese units. Jim Moran accepted the mission, took WO1 Neil MacMillan as his front-seater and a wingman, at night and in bad weather found the way through the jungle and located surrounded troops. On the scene Cobras put the fire onto attacking NVA troops to hold them off , and maintained control of an increasingly dangerous situation until Slicks and Medevac choppers arrived to extract the LRRP team. Jim Moran stayed at the place to coordinate evacuation until everyone was safely lifted and returned to the landing zone "on fumes in the gas tank" This mission is believed to be one of the longest flown by Huey Cobra in Vietnam. After the mission, Jim Moran and Neil MacMillan were recommended for a Silver Star Now back to the model. AZ produced a very nice kit, sufficiently detailed, with thin and crisp panel lines, good fit for short-run mould. I used Brengun PE set to enhance details in some areas – mostly in cockpit, and in some places outside. I also added landing light on the bottom side. I got Pavla’s vacformed canopy as AZ’s one is fairly thick. But in the end I decided to go with original kit’s canopy and I'm fairly satisfied with how it went on. Model is painted with Gunze US Olive Drab, other paints are Vallejo. I used kit’s decals, that went quite ok. No stencils are provided by AZ. Another kit’s omission – just one weapons option. Jim Moran flew his Cobra with 4 XM-200 launchers but kit provides just two of them and 2 XM-18 miniguns. Enough words – on to photoes: Thanks for looking! Dennis
  9. Bell AH-1F Cobra, sometimes referred to as the Modernized Cobra. Pics taken at The Don F Pratt Memorial Museum, Fort Campbell, Kentucky, USA by Rick (infofrog)
  10. Call me insane, but here is my 6th and final entry. (Unless I find another gem on eBay cheap ) I've just won it, so until Mr Postman pops it through the door and it's in my grubby little hands you'll have to make do with an eBay photo. I built one of these in the late 80s but the skids ended up a bit lopsided, I was using Revell Contacta Pro and unfortunatly didn't leave it long enough to set. Those were the days before I trusted myself to use superglue. (I now live near a hospital as well...) I can't wait to get started on this one, the AH-1G is a beautiful looking aircraft and with my move to 1/144 (mainly) it's not often I'm going to get a second chance at building a kit from my early modelling days. ***Update*** Now I've got the kit here's a photo of my lovely sealed HueyCobra
  11. Built for the obsolete kit group build. Converted to an "early" variant AH-1G with scratch built cockpit and details. AH-1G 66-15259 was the first HueyCobra to fly an operational mission and also the first to achieve a combat kill. Build thread.
  12. OK, time to start HueyCobra number two! I'm not bothering with sprue shots as they're exactly the same as my other build, and to keep it interesting I'm not telling you what I'm doing These are the only kit parts I'm using, the only other things I'll be using are scraps of card etc. I've made a start on the trenches with Mr. Surfacer already.
