This recent release is very comprehensive indeed, comprising four grey sprues, one clear sprue, a set of vinyl masks, a fret of photo etch and a cartograph decal sheet for four
versions. The 'Zulu' Cobra is the US Marine Corps latest upgraded variant, equipped with a rotary 20 mm cannon, AGM-114 and AIM-9 missiles as well as rocket pods and a host of other enhancements.
The completed model is by a recent addition to the 580 crew, Lenny Brennand. The model is very much out of the box apart from the addition of a DEF Model USMC AH-1Z Viper Pilot set, which comprises
12 resin parts and an etch fret, allowing a variety of poses and equipment to be selected.
The kit is painted in Hataka Lacquers, with Dark Ghost Grey
and Light Ghost Grey used for the main scheme.
The kit decals were used and depict AH-168961, coded SM-47, of Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron
369 (HMLA-369) based at Marine Air Corps Station Iwakuni (Japan) in April 2018.
Having looked at reviews on the web, this is evidently an awesome kit and
Lenny has very much done it justice.
