These helicopters the Cobra AH-1 and the Huey UH-1 were fast to make and a lot of fun. You can make them in a weekend. I make them out of pine and Baltic Burch.

Thanks for lookin. 100_4898.JPG  100_4900.JPG  100_4901.JPG  100_4902.JPG  100_4904.JPG  100_4905.JPG

I love wood toy helicopters and you have made a couple of fine ones. That's a cool finish and wood grain combination.

Well done.

I'm guessing you are staining the darker parts?

Cobra Helecopter plans page 16 views 3 & 4. I'm curious what did you use to cut those?

On #3 I just cut it out out of the block of the body (#1) after cutting out the body. Then I cut out the windows per the pattern on page 17. I did the same thing with #4 but without windows.

I hope this helps.
