This was a real treat to watch. It was the best look I've ever gotten to have at this mammoth jet, believe it or not.
Your sample looks immaculate too! I will also be sure to watch the full length HD version. Thank you for sharing.  :)

this is my favourite cobra jet, at some point in time I'm going to have to replace all the pieces that are missing on mine. Awesome review by the way.
I never noticed that detail about the patch on the strato-viper before. Does the 25th issue have this as well?

Thanks for sharing again, I found it so hard to watch because I had one when it came out and don't have it anymore...it's  on my list of things, high up there, but I know the shipping will be killer.

took out my night raven and was looking it over, because you mentioned in your video that the recon craft had no landing gear and made it hard to sit flat. Mine had 2 tabs near the front (by air engine intake) that fix that problem.

I've had two people check out the boxed Night Raven in my store because of this review.
Well done!
