AH-1 1:18 scale Cobra


This one been a long time comming but Im closing in on getting it done. So far its been sorta a pain to mould. Heres my first prototype done. Still need to mould a few more parts and pieces. The fuselage right now is at 106 grams. Some has used the BBI static display model on a T-rex. This really seems to be more along the line for a AXE Cp or Honeybee King V2 or even a shogun size heli (400). Next on the agenda is the Sikorsky S-76 as promised since last year which I started on but shelved it. The mould is about 60% done.
Oh yeah, The Skycrane is also on the list also. And I have another that I will leave as a surprise

Can I still do 3d on my TREX 450 with these bodies? Or are they too heavy?

If the Marine and Army chopper pilots see this there will be some late night painting going on down on the ramp. Very cool Ed. Run the snake tail up the fin and paint some rattlers at the end.

Just a couple more. It now weighs 136 grams
To be honest, I did think about rattles but then I thought to myself, Cobras dont have rattles.

I met a Marine who had camoflaged his 50cal, on the muzzle brake he had sprayed thur a net, so it had a scale pattern like a snake. Looked bad a**, wish I had a pic. Might be a easy technique to paint the rattles.

Looks good Darthdrk!

I just got a Trex600 kit, I eventually plan on a fuselage for it, you see any demand for the bigger fuselages?

I get alot of requests for larger fuselages. I will look into it but making a plug is alot of work. I must first get a T-rex 600 inorder to make a fuselage to properly fit it.

Fitting the fuselage on an AXE Cp.
I have made a platform for the chassis to sit on inside the fuselage. Also the landing gear is mounted to the bottom of the platform. The platform is made from some styrofoam with 1/16 plywood on the top and bottom. I cut my block a little to short so I had to make some runners for the landing gear to mount to the bottom. all thats left is mounting the tail rotor which I will have to extend the wires about 5 inches.

Hello Darth,
I have your Super cobra kit for the TREX, It is the best kit I seen in details, I already build and paint camo. I only have one concern, there is none or little instructions included on how to install the heli on the fuselage, I really want to show off this beatiful heli when done If I get the instructions from you with pictures I can get it done today

Latinflyer.
