First Look

If there is one constant in this universe, its that you can count on Cobra Company to dress up helicopter kits with impressive details. Such is the case with this latest release for the VERY impressive Academy 1/48 CH-53E Sea Stallion kit (review here).

While the kit is indeed impressive, there was no doubt in my mind that some of the more generic or non-existent details in the cockpit would be rectified by Cobra Company. In this set we have the following:

  • New Cockpit Floor
  • New Cockpit Rear Bulkhead
  • Left and Right Tail Rotor Pedal Mounts
  • Cockpit Overhead Console
  • Instrument Panel
  • Rear of Instrument Panel
  • FLIR Control Handle
  • Brake Handle
  • Windshield Fluid Reservoir
  • Pilots Seats
  • Seat Supports and Suspension
  • Sear Armor Panels
  • Fly Away Kit
  • Avionics Support Rack
  • Avionics Box
  • .50 Caliber Machine Gun
  • Machine Gun Yoke
  • Machine Gun Handles
  • Machine Gun Ammo Container

You can see in the instructions how this all goes together with the stock kit.

This set is definitely recommended for the Academy kit and will really enhance the cockpit as seen through those huge windows.

My sincere thanks to Cobra Company for this review sample!
