This latest release
Wings gives you everything you need to model the current
configuration for the AH-1W.
The AH-1W went into service with the
USMC in 1985. Four Squadrons of Super Cobras were involved in the push
into occupied Kuwait in 1991where they proved they were an effective anti-armor

The set includes 5 resin parts which you will need
to build the current configuration for the AH-1W. One of the parts is the
driveshaft cover for the left side of the AH-1W, which will give you some added
detail in the engine compartment area.
You get 2 pages of instructions
showing you with photos where to cut your kit to accommodate this conversion
set. The instructions also include a variety of detail photo of the real
AH-1W to help you in the conversion process. The main part has raised
rivets to match the kit parts. The screens on top are not as clear as I
would like and I would be tempted to replace them to get really crisp clean
This conversion set will be a big
help to anyone wanting to current
configuration for the AH-1W and I'm glad to see Werner's Wings has gone to the
effort to release this set.
You can purchase these and other
fine resin detail items directly from Werner's
I would like to
providing me with this review sample.
