Looking forward to seeing the 530 when it's done too!

ps. I got my Raptor 50 - now I just need to save up for the approach kit
You are going to love that 50, I am obsessed with mine...

The MD530 mounts right up to a Titan.

The gear are a bit frustrating but after a bit of sanding, cussing and fitting it went together well.

The glass is nice, the piant chips kind of easily.

Very nice MD530 Andy!!!

I used to have both the Raptor50 and Raptor60 pod-and-boom helis, i still like the R50's flying character, the controls are more crisp and slop-free, now i regreted selling it away 2 years ago! Grrrr! TT did not come out with these 50-sized MD-530 fuses back then.[] I then converted the R60 to the Funkey Bell Long Ranger fuse. It's now in a new home, sign.....

that cobra turned out awesome, you do really good work, my only criticism would be it isnt accurate to the markings of any real cobra, but other then that, it's awesome!
That's correct Scott, the markings are not according to any squadron, just an exercise in free expression of color schemes, it's sometimes quite stressful to hunt down all the right insignias and logos for a particular squadron, sometimes it's just not easy to find on the net what you really looking for.

Anyone can help with links to free squadron insignias and logos? Very much appreciated in advance!

I think this is pretty close to the colour scheme you chose.
It's a supercobra so the fuselage is a little different to the TOW cobra, but I like the colour scheme and markings
