About this creation
Bell 209 Firewatch Cobra front left

In 2003, the U.S. Forest Service acquired 25 retired AH-1Fs from the U.S. Army. These have been designated Bell 209 and are being converted into Firewatch Cobras with infrared and low light sensors and systems for real time fire monitoring. The Florida Division of Forestry has also acquired 3 AH-1Ps from the U.S. Army. These are called Bell 209 "Firesnakes" and are equipped to carry a water/fire retardant system.

Quoting Kurt's MOCs Beautiful! I love the colour scheme and the details. Always the details!
What's a shame is the details you can't see, such as the turbine inside the intakes.

Great build! The shaping and detailing is the best I've seen on any LEGO Cobra model. The cockpit is especially good. I also really the color scheme on this version of the Cobra -- I'm glad you decided to build it.

Quoting Mister Hashtag Great-looking helicopter, you captured the details excellently!
Thanks! I may decal this in Gimp, it would look even better with the black transition stripes between the white/orange, white/yellow, and yellow/orange, as well as the USFS markings. I actually set out making the AH-1S model with the goal of being able to make the Firewatch Cobra variant out of it.
