1/48 Monogram AH1S Cobra

Gallery Article by Charles Johnson on May 20  2009



This is the old but still a good kit from Monogram can't remember the year. Construction is easy as there is not much to the model itself.  Painting was done with Flo-Quill Engine Black then a coat of Testors Dull Coat and then a coat of Testors Gloss Varnish.

Decals are a gem, they go on very easy with hardly any trimming once cut off the sheet, then given 4 coats of future floor polish for a good glossy finish.  Also with the decals you get the rocket pods and the outboard smoke generator made of resin. 

Joe Osborn form Fire Ball Model Works did an outstanding job on the decals and resin parts.  http://www.fireballmodels.info/
