the Gazelle is a big influence as it's one of my favorite choppers...
Your Super Cobra inspired me too... for my collection of Mustangs. But finding a balance has not been easy. :unsure: ;D

For my collection of Lightnings also, one (or two) Fenestron(s) was a good idea, thanks again! ;D
It gives balance to an asymetric airplane, or this (or equivalent) is mandatory on a helicopter version:

The Fenestron looks very much at home on the Cobra.
:wub:
It might just give me the kick up I need to do a Cobra conversion I've been thinking of for the In the Navy GB.
:thumbsup:
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

 :thumbsup: :thumbsup: It does look like it should've had one in real life, doesn't it?
Yeah, go ahead and do it! The cobra's are beautiful choppers and there's no such thing as too many of them. :thumbsup:
