Last November, I got to spent some time in the gunner's compartment of a friggin' Hind.
Thus started an itch to build, as Arnold would say, a "choppa".
'Course, the Hind is big and scary, even in 1/72, much less in 1/35, so I'm planning to start off with something more manageable - and, it so happens, my favorite of the attack helicopters, the USMC's AH-1W Supercobra.
The modern "naptime gray" scheme adopted after Desert Storm is, well, meh. So I'll be doing my 1/35 weedwhacker as a battered Desert Storm cobra. A good experiment for weathering!
A first rough test-fit shows a promising kit that is still, nevertheless, well outside my wheelhouse!
