Tech Notes
This is a 1/72 Bell AH-1W "Whiskey", Super Cobra Helicopter from Italeri.

During the Vietnam War, it quickly became apparent that troop carrying
helicopters required some kind of armed escort. The AH-1 Cobra was intended to
be a stopgap measure to meet this need while a new aircraft could be designed.
As a result, the AH-1 had many parts in common with the UH-1 Huey. However,
the Cobra was such a success that it is still in use today and the proposed
replacement, the AH-56 Commanche, was canceled. The AH-1W is a navalized twin
engine version of the Cobra and is used exclusively by the U.S. Marine Corps
for close air support of ground troops.
