Default AH-1F Decals-FOURTEEN different aircraft in two scales

The decals are on their way to the printers. The decals will be printed by Cartograf. So you know they will be good quality. I can vouch for the excellence that went into producing the decals as the artist was certainly up to the task and did an outstanding job. At this time he wants to remain anonymous but without him I certainly could not have done the Herculean task of FOURTEEN aircraft. I hope you like sand and shark mouths because there are plenty of both.

The set will come with a DVD with a complete walk around, reference photos of the actual aircraft on the sheet, and some personal photos that I like.

There will be two scales, 1/48th and 1/72nd. Both sheets will come with enough stencils to do one aircraft. You will be able to purchase additional 1/48th scale stencils. We opted not to make the extra sheet of 72nd stencils. They were so small that they didn't warrant the space. 72nd scale modelers had better step up to the plate on this one. It is a gauge to see if they are interested in other things in this scale.

The 1/48th decals are designed for the Monogram kit and the 72nd are for the Hasegawa one. To give you a look at how much work went into these, the decals aren't just downsized from 48 to 72 they were adjusted to fit the Hasegawa kit which is slightly different than the Monogram kit in the area of the turret fairing. That is what the artist found out. That is quality and dedication on his part. Superior workmanship and artistry.

No price has been set yet as I am still pricing the DVD packaging and everything else. I still have to get quotes on the printers for the instructions. I will let you all know when it happens and how much, but probably in slightly less than $20 for the sheet, two actually in 48th scale, and DVD. No price yet for the stencils either.

I hope, key word is hope, to have the decals by the August 1 at the very least in time for the Nats. I will not accept pre-orders at this time.

Just thought you would like to know.
Floyd

Does this mean I will finally be able to do a "ODS" AH-1F?

Floyd,

The shark mouth in the upper right corner.....I would suggest that your decal artist add more carrier film between the upper and lower set of teeth. Trying to apply that decal will be a pain otherwise.

Just a friendly suggestion. Sheet looks great!

Decided to go with Cartograf after all? Great looking sheet! Any chance you could post some images of the actual aircraft or of the profiles? Either way I'll be picking up this sheet for sure.

Default Preview of upcoming AH-1F decals

Here is a preview of some of the subjects on the upcoming Werner's Wings AH-1F: Last of the Army Cobras decal sheet(s). There are two others that will be complete surprises and are sure to be exciting.

A DVD will be supplied with a complete walk around and all the reference photos used to make the decals.

I'm still shooting for an early August release. These sheets and some new resin will be available at the Nats. I will be at the Nostalgic Plastic booth along with the Master Class Model Building Videos.

Don't forget to check out www.wernerswings.com for new information in reference to new and discontinued sets, as well as, some new announcements. Some of the announcements aren't even helicopter related.
