Was it ICM or Miniart who came out with the Vietnam era Cobras in 1/32 scale recently?

Looks like the OV-10A is already available from Micromark's site.

The ICM 1/32 AH-1Gs are very nice.  Way better than the old Monogram/Revell ones.

Great unboxing (with sprue photos) and assessment of the 1/48 OV-10 kit here.

ICM did release a 1/48 AH-1G, kit no. ICM 48299. It's and artic version though.

Special Hobby released a AH-1G Spanish Z.14 version in the the Spring of 2022. I bought 3 of them and just finishing up the 1st one as an early tail US Army version using decals from ASK and Werner Wing's. ASK offers 4 decal sheets for US Army versions, however ASK decals are terible. The are to thick and papery and extremly difficult to lay down over irregular surfaces such as the tail boom over extremely raised rivets no mater what softening solution used. Multipule applications of Walthers decal softner works the best though.  

Special Hobby also release a 1/48 AH-1G Hi-Tech kit with 3D printed parts, photo etched inlet screens and intrument panels. Eduard also has a few photo etched interiors too. One thing I like is that it comes with parts to do early and late tail rotors and comes with a S(Mod) canopy, but no platypus nose, no tail rotor and fin for the S(Mod), no HSS rails or TOW missles. But you can steal those parts from other kits.
