AH-1W eSuper cobra
This AH-1W model fuselage was modeled to fit the Century Swift 16 electric helicopter and will fit many 500 class electric models. If we do not list your model and it physically fits within the fuselage, then likely the only change would be to drill new landing gear mount points. The eSuperCobra once again is a first in this class, it is simple to build and was expertly engineered to handle the tail belt into the elevated tail section. Plently of scale details are included and it is very simple for the beginner modeler to fit to their helicopter mechanics.
width: 5" fuse, 11.75" all
This is a feather-weight fuselage and can accept similarly sized electric or smaller mechanics. Installing the mechanics and tail drive system is very straight forward and we have laid it out in a logical method to make building the eSuperCobra as simple as possible. We recommend using one of the flat military covering materials but experienced modelers can add the rivet details, prime & seal the wood surface and airbrush directly on the primed surface for an unbelieveable scale appearance. This method works very well for camouflage paint schemes commonly used on Cobra helicopters. The eSuperCobra is just packed full of scale details and functional items that will make building our fuselage a pleasure. New modelers should be aware that between opening your new AH-1W SuperCobra fuselage and finishing the model can take between 2 to 4 weeks, depending on how much time you can commit to building and finishing.
