This item is an injection-plastic helicopter model kit. 78 parts. Length: 19cm completed.

The Bell AH-1 Cobra (company designation: Model 209) is a two-blade, single engine attack helicopter manufactured by Bell Helicopter. It was developed using the engine, transmission and rotor system of the Bell's UH-1 Iroquois. The AH-1 is also referred to as the HueyCobra or Snake. The AH-1 was the backbone of the United States Army's attack helicopter fleet, but has been replaced by the AH-64 Apache in Army service. Upgraded versions continue to fly with the militaries of several other nations. The AH-1 twin engine versions remain in service with United States Marine Corps (USMC) as the service's primary attack helicopter. The United States Forest Service refers to their program as the Firewatch Cobra.

Standard-type version of the Cobra in US Army markings. Raised panel detail, but a good-looking kit nonetheless. Box art by Shigeo Koike.
