Italeri/MRC 1/35 AH-1W Cobra
By Darren McGuinness
This is my Italeri/MRC 1/35 AH-1W COBRA. I added some scratched details to the cockpit and crewed it with a D-Toys resin figure in the forward position and my own figure built from spares in the rear position. Other mods included detail painting the instrument panels, drilling out the cannon barrels, adding wiring, boxes and harnesses etc. I also used decals from Two Bobs Aviation Graphics to depict a Whiskey Cobra from HML/A-167 "WARRIORS" USMC.
I painted it with Tamiya acrylics and for the weathering I made use of AK Interactive's Panel Liner washes, with some artists oils. I know this one is not dead accurate, but I wanted to make do with what I had in the toolbox, so to speak!
