Review:

About 5 years ago Twobobs released their decalsheet AH-1W Whiskey's In the Mix, now it has been reprinted.

Markings are provided for a total of  fifteen aircraft. The massive amount of decals comes on 3 decalsheets, it also includes a smaller sheet with the nose art. The last one is printed by Archer. The decals are very thin and all markings on my sheet are in perfect register.

The first 5 Cobras are painted in the standard two tone tactical scheme (FS36375 and FS35237) in combination with some interesting artwork

  • AH-1W NTS Upgrade, BuNo 160804, EH/40, HMM-264 "Black Knights": Coloured sharkmouth

  • AH-1W NTS Upgrade, BuNo 160815, HF/06, HML/A-269 "Gunrunners", Operation Enduring Freedom 2002: with noseart

  • AH-1W NTS Upgrade, BuNo 162542, TV/28, HML/A-167 "The Warriors": Subdued "detailled" Snake

  • AH-1W, BuNo 162545, TV/39, HML/A-167 "The Warriors", Combined Arms Exercise (CAX) 2001: Subdued Sharkmouth
  • AH-1W, BuNo 165317, EM/30, HMM-261 "Raging Bulls": Subdued "undetailled" Snake

You also have the possibility to choose from one of the 10 Desert Strom two-tone Brown Cobra's (FS33711, FS30257) in service with HML/A-367 "Scarface". They ware based at Saudi Arabia, first at Al Jubail and later Tanajib. Next to the BuNo and Modex numbers you also get kill markings for tanks, APC's and trucks. They are all regular non-NTS upgraded Whiskeys.

  • AH-1W, BuNo 160113, 120

  • AH-1W, BuNo 160800, 121

  • AH-1W, BuNo 160822, 122

  • AH-1W, BuNo 162541, 125

  • AH-1W, BuNo 162543, 126

  • AH-1W, BuNo 162545, 127

  • AH-1W, BuNo 162546, 130

  • AH-1W, BuNo 162552, 131

  • AH-1W, BuNo 162571, 132

  • AH-1W, BuNo 162572, 133

National markings and maintenance stencils are provided for two aircraft of the "Grey" Cobra's, the Desert Strom Cobra's don't need maintenance stencils.

The double-sided painting guidelines are printed in color and also provide some extra historical facts for almost every featured aircraft.

A very nice sheet with a lot of options, luckily I got mine a few years ago for $15, as now they are sold for $25.
