Cobra Company has released this interesting upgrade to the Panda Models 1/35 UH-1N kit. This set provides a variety of weapons configurations for the USMC UH-1N gunships. The set includes a pair of rocket pods, a 50 caliber machine gun, a 7.62mm minigun, and all of the mounts, brackets, ammo canisters and details needed to arm the Huey. The set also includes a gunsight for the pilot and another interesting touch, an ammunition chute cast in rubber so it can be routed wherever you want it.
The instructions are nicely illustrated and show the placement of exterior each part by part number. It is still a good idea to have some photo references to check for proper placement/orientation of each part.
If you've wanted a UH-1N gunship in 1/35 scale, here is the conversion to get your Panda kit up to speed. If you want to round out the rest of the detailing in the Panda kit, check out the Detail Set for the USMC UH-1N also from Cobra Company.
My sincere thanks to Cobra Company for this review sample!
