AH-1Z Linkless Ammo Box Kit

Werner's Wings 1/48 AH-1Z Linkless Ammo Box First Look

By Michael Benolkin

Date of Review November 2015 Manufacturer Werner's Wings
Subject AH-1Z Linkless Ammo Box Scale 1/48
Number 48011 Primary Media Resin
Pros Nice sharp details Cons Nothing noted
Skill Level Experienced MSRP (USD) $8.00

First Look

Here's the latest from Werner's Wings - this interesting casting replaces the linked round ammo box that is in the starboard nose compartment. The Zulu and updated Whiskey Cobras replaced their linked ammo feed system with this new linkless system and you can add this update to your Kitty Hawk kit.

This set consists of a single resin casting that goes into the starboard side bay and just needs to be painted to bring out those details. This will also look nice with the updated 'exposed' turret set also produced by Werner's Wings and perhaps they'll do this and the turret in 1/35 scale for the MRC/Academy kit as well.

If you want to add some nice detail to your Kitty Hawk Viper kit and bring your gun feed system up to current specification, then you'll want this set.

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