Cobra Company 1/48 HH-65 USCG Interior Conversion First Look
|Date of Review||December 2007||Manufacturer||Cobra Company|
|Subject||HH-65 USCG Interior Conversion||Scale||1/48|
|Kit Number||48056||Primary Media||Resin|
|Pros||Transforms the Trumpeter Dauphin interior into a current configuration USCG HH-65 Dolphin||Cons|
|Skill Level||Intermediate||MSRP (USD)||$28.00|
Cobra Company has released a completely new interior detail set for the Trumpeter 1/48 Dauphin helicopter. Trumpeter has released several versions of this popular machine, including one in the markings of the HH-65 Dolphin operated by the US Coast Guard. While Trumpeter did provide a few differences in the USCG variant, the interior was still a generic layout. Cobra Company to the rescue!
This set completely replaces the kit interior with one laid out for a standard issue USCG HH-65 and comprises 30 different resin parts that are nicely cast. The set has a new interior floor with integral center cockpit console and instrument panel pedestal. The set also includes an overhead console and ceiling plate, three crew seats, instrument panel, cyclics, hoist control panel, rear cabin bulkhead and rear compartment, medical bags and more.
My sincere thanks to Cobra Company for this review sample!
