This is a Hasegawa kit AH-1S Cobra, 1/72nd scale. It's the Japeanese version, but I added US Marine decals to make it an early version AH-1S. The Kit itself is quite good, with all parts fitting very very well. My only regret here is that I didnt take more photos of the model in its contstruction stage.
