Academy’s AH-1T Gold Cobra is a very simple and straightforward kit to put together. With the few parts this kit has (compared to other kits!) you can build it in 1-2 days, depending on the time your glue needs to dry.
Apart from the seam between the two fuselage parts, no significant putty was needed to achieve a nice result! Very happy overall with how easy this kit is put together!
I have no pictures, sorry!
Paint and Weathering
After covering the model in grey primer, it was time to apply Tamiya’s XF-1 Flat Black. The one tone color sheme makes this a piece of cake! After the base color, some details were painted and glued.
Next, a clear coat was applied after which I was able to apply the decals. The decals went on nicely with the help of a good decal softener. I did not weather this model other then the rotor mechanism which was soaked in a dark tinted wash.
