Bell AH-1F Cobra
(Revell - Nr. 04646)
Revell of Germany released their Bell AH-1F Cobra in scale 1/48.
It is based on the molds of the Monogram AH-1S kit which was originally released in the mid 1980s'. This is a very nice kit, the cockpit detail is excellent with fine detail on the instrument panels, side panels as well as the rear cockpit. It also includes two pilot figures.
The boxart depicts a Desert Storm machine with the well known sharkmouth and "Sandshark" artwork. The second option on the decalsheet is an Israeli version.
This release comes right in time as both Werner's Wings and Fireball Modelworks already released some aftermarket sets suitable for this kit and there are also additional ones in the pipeline.
The kit is listed in the Revell catalogue under number 04646 and was released in October 2009 for the price of around €15.
