I did a conversion of a AH1J and parts from an AH1S to do a Vietnam AH1G for some reason Fujimi did not do a good G. Cobra made a conversion and I did use some of the parts of it for this but the aft fuselage and engine cowl was warped so I opted to use the plastic parts for that area. I wanted to do Hugh Mills aircraft and him in it so here it is.

some of the parts of the conversion, yellow resin are the Cobra parts, and the dark green are the Fujimi parts.


the only mod that was needed to the engine cowl was to cut the front part to fit the round J or G canopy

Thats looking fantastic Doug, too bad the conversion is out of production these days, have you heard anything about it being re-released under another brand? Also, are the figs from the kit?

I have heard that the Cobra company has been bought and will still be available so hopefully the g conversion will be part of that. the figures are converted from Monogram Huey figs.

The CC masters were bought by Lone Star Models (click on the Cobra Company tab under the red "Store" button). Some of the CC items are already available and he plans to make more available as time goes on, so keep checking back.
