I've been chatting with Flying Kiwi about his AH-1W Cobra build, and thought I could start mine too
2 modellers building the same kit at the same time
So I thought I'd mention it to you all and ask if anyone else was keen
Just a fun build, completely optional, just find a fellow modeller and build the same thing (dif kits like Revell/Italeri is fine just stick to the same subject)
Same sorta thing that the 2 Kanes (grover and Xtr3meNZer) and I did a while back
If anyone wants to build the AH-1W Cobra as well feel free to join in
Aiming to start in February
Let us know if you're keen!
My Build is the AH-1W with HMLA 169 in the two tone grey (not the three tone gulf war scheme)
This is for a mate who was a crew chief on the "Whiskey" and has some great stories of nearly falling off the carrier while attached to the bird, or nearly being flattened by a CH-53 Sea Stallion as it was trying to land on the Cobra... while he was under it looking up.... and then there was a story about stealing a tank...
