First Look

Here's the latest from Werner's Wings - this set replicates the auxiliary fuel tank carried externally on the AH-1W, AH-1Z, UH-1N, and UH-1Y. This set, cast in gray resin, is 1/48th scale so it is an ideal enhancement for the Kitty Hawk Models' 1/48 UH-1Y or AH-1Z kits as well as your favorite 1/48 UH-1N and AH-1W kits.

AH-1/UH-1 External Aux Tank Kit

This set consists of a three resin parts consisting of the tank and fittings, ready to be suspended on a weapons station or carrier mount on your scale aircraft.

If you want to add some nice detail to your late-model USMC helicopter kit, then you'll want this set.

My sincere thanks to Werner's Wings for this review sample!
