    I've been stocking up on a bunch of 1:72 Vietnam era helicopters and I'm excited to start building them. I have kits for 2 Cobras, 1 Sea Knight, 1 OH-6, and 5 UH-1 Hueys. I have one Cobra completed and I just need to sort out the markings, crew, and armament for the rest of the helos. I'll be posting pictures of the Cobra soon as well as progress on the others.

    Built from the 1960's Monogram kit straight out of the box. The decals are a little eh, but not too bad for being 50 years old.

    Your Cobra bears the insignia of the 25th infantry Division "Tropic Lightning". As a helo would have been operated by the 25th Aviation Regiment. Constituted 21 June 1963 in the Regular Army as Company B, 25th Aviation Battalion, an element of the 25th Infantry Division
    The 25th was one of the first units in Vietnam and one of the last to leave
