My kids picked up a box with the new Battlefront Cobra helicopter. The model was very easy to put together and I ended up modeling the airframe after the AH1G. I used used the US armor spray from battlefront to put down the base coat. Otherwise I followed the You Tube painting guide. Overall the I am satisfied with the model as it looks nice and was easy to accomplish a good look. I did paint a gloss on the canopy after I took these photos.
I wanted to customize the AH1G a little different from the BF options, so I hand painted some customized painting that I found on a real AH1G from Vietnam. Its not exact, but I used it as an inspiration.
I was over at Toys R Us a couple weeks ago to see if there were any new Halo lego for my son. He has a big collection of them. There was nothing new, but I did find a couple cheap die cast Apache Helicopters. They were in a cheap looking color scheme, so I primed and repainted them. Not bad for $3.00 each.
