Based on the model from Monogram, with the black snake motif that was applied to Northern Cobra Squadron AH-1's last year. Scratch-built RWR housings and sensors were added from shaped resin pour stubs and styrene. The chaff/flare dispensers are from a Pro Modeler F-4E Phantom kit, with scratch-built mounts. Screen mesh was added to the openings in the engine covers. Other details include the tail skid and cable cutter braces from brass rod, and antennas made from stretched sprue. The finish is a Humbrol mix of three parts Hu110 to one part Hu119. The weathering is a combination of airbrush post-shading, acrylic washes, and pastels. Last but not least, the markings are from Isradecal (2003 Attack Helicopters set).
