First Look

OV-1 Mohawk Turbine Exhaust Pipes Set

If you haven't visited the Cobra Company website recently, you haven't seen the interesting research (and fun) that Chris Miller has been doing - he has restored a full-scale OV-1 Mohawk nose! So when you look at a resin detail set for the Mohawk cockpit, you'll see that this was a labor of love as well!

This set is designed for the 1/48 scale OV-1 Mohawk kits released by Roden earlier in 2005. The kit is beautiful on the outside and generally has nice detailing all around, but another area that could be improved upon is the engine exhausts. Each one comes in halves, but unless you spent some quality time with some filler and filing tools, you'll be seeing seamlines on those exhaust ducts as they extend out over the top of the wing in very plain sight.

Cobra Company to the rescue! Here are two new seamless exhaust ducts cast in tan resin. Check out the Mohawk walk arounds here and see how visible these ducts are on the real aircraft.

These exhaust ducts are direct replacements for the kit parts and there should be no special effort required to use this set.

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

My sincere thanks to Cobra Company for this review sample!
