This product is a simple replacement for the tail rotor for AH-1Gs and UH-1Ds. The part is recommended for the AZ Models or Special Hobbies AH-1G kits, but will work with any UH-1D/H kit that has the wrong style of tail rotor. As you can see from the pictures, taken with kit parts from both AH-1G kits, the kit parts have thicker blades with a different shape. Those were based on later AH-1F and AH-1S helicopters and are incorrect for earlier Cobras.

The parts are direct replacements for the kit parts and remove easily from the mold pour plug, with easy cleanup. They are well cast, with no mold flaws or pin holes in the resin. The parts align well with drawings I have of the early Cobras and Hueys. Besides, if anybody would know whether they were correct or not, I think Floyd Werner would.

Thanks to Werner's Wings for the review sample and to IPMS/USA for the opportunity to review it. Highly recommenced as an easy correction for your early Cobra.
