First Look

Cobra Company has really been busy lately! They've turned out no less than four detail sets for Trumpeter's impressive 1/35 CH-47 Chinook kits. While chatting with them recently, they explained their latest projects and this detail set in particular. While the Chinook kit is nice inside and out, the ribs/formers and spars inside the airframe are rendered as simple raised detail. According to Cobra Company, the placement of those ribs/formers is also a little off as well.

This detail set replaces all of the molded-in interior structural detail with realistic ribs and spars that are complete right down to their lightening holes. The instructions walk you through the process of replicating the structural stations inside the airframe so that you won't have any difficulties installing the new details.

CH-47 Interior Structural Detail Set

In addition to the 16 ribs/formers and sparts, the detail set also includes four complete troop seat assemblies, detailed upper crew entry door complete with track detailing, first aid kits, and emergency lighting units.

With this set alone, your Trumpeter 1/35 CH-47A or CH-47D kit will definitely be an eye-opener!

This set is definitely recommended for the 'Hook' modeler and is available directly from Cobra Company.

My sincere thanks to Cobra Company for this review sample!
