Product announcement by Floyd S. Werner, Jr. on Aug 19 2008



Having flown the AH-1F in Desert Storm and Bosnia, it has always been a favorite of mine.  Iíve always wanted to do my aircraft.  Now I can with the Wernerís Wings IPS and Debris Deflector set.  

Designed for the venerable Monogram kit, the IPS will easily fit into the inlet as soon as you removed the molded on inlet.  The Improved Particle Separator (IPS) was designed to filter out sand and dirt from the inlet.  Hundreds of tiny swirl tubes flung the sand to the outside where it was blown overboard.  

The Debris Deflector was designed to allow the shooting of the Mk.66 rocket motors.  The rockets were so fast that they caused a disruption in the airflow to the engine.  The Debris Deflector allowed the rockets to be fired without restrictions. 

These two parts are finally available for the Monogram kit.  This will help bring your Cobra up to the final versions of the US Armyís finest attack helicopter.  IMHO. 

You can order yours directly from Wernerís Wings at fwernerjr@comcast.net .  I accept Paypal to the same address or check/money order or cash.  Write me for details and an address.  

I will have them available at the IPMS/USA National Convention in VA Beach and upon my return from there.
