1/32 USMC AH-1W Whiskey Cobra  decal sheet

Product # CD32021 for MRC / Academy AH-1W kit

Product Article by Steve Bamford on Mar 26 2021

This new decal sheet from Caracal Models includes markings for 3 different 1/32 USMC AH-1W Whiskey Cobra's with USMC.  

Until the recent introduction of AH-1Z, the "Whiskey Cobra" has been the primary attack helicopter of US Marine Corps. In this decal sheet, we provide several markings options for recent and current AH-1Ws. The 3 options on this sheet are:

  • AH-1W BuNo. 160820, HMLA-467 (FDNY 9/11 tribute scheme)

  • AH-1W BuNo. 162546, HMLA-167 "Warriors"

  • AH-1W BuNo. 165284, HMLA-773 Det B "Red Dogs"

Please note that this sheet is in 1/35 scale and intended for the MRC / Academy AH-1W kit.

Most of the options depict current USMC AH-1W configuration (NTS update and new exhaust shrouds) and will require modification of the MRC / Academy kits. We recommend the upturned exhausts set (35-07) by Werner's Wings.

This set was professionally screen printed by Microscale in the US.

You can buy this decal sheet directly from Caracal Models.
