Hobby Boss'' new 1/72 Bell AH-1F Cobra attack helicopter is another offering in their expanding, popular series of helicopters. Two decals choices, three wing-mounted rocket and missile options, good detail, rotor-wing fans will appreciate this model.

All, I absent mindedly loaded the review of the UH-1B in the Vietnam Forum. Here's the link: Hobby Boss UH-1B

If you have comments or questions please post them here.

Thanks!

Not haveing built Hobby Boss' offerings I won't comment on the quality other than Italeri already puts out a very respectable series of Hueys in 1/72 scale that include nicely scribed detail in which,along with the now OOP Microscale decals, I have put together a nice little collection. The cobras, on the other hand, are welcome because most of the offerings available have raised panal lines. I can only hope though that Hobby Boss will give us what we really need, a G model.
