1/72 AH-1G, AZ or Special Hobby?


Recommended Posts

Interested in doing 2 Vietnam options,  the early 3 tone came scheme and an olive drab Air Cav version. Best kit /easiest build?

Hi @roym

 

When I looked into this myself I went for the AZ kits, as I believe there is an accuracy 'issue' with the engine intakes on the Special Hobby kit. Especially so for the early (Vietnam) aircraft.

 

You might end up wanting to buy these for your Special Hobby AH-1G..........

This would be a good bet, I think

I think Special Hobby had more than one mistake, pretty sure there it was a dedicated thread on ArcForums when Loach & Cobra kits were released and people wasn't as happy because modern variants were once again ignored and forgotten
