Great kit
By jeremy.s.michels1 July 20, 2015
This was a nice A-10. The instructions were easy to follow. There was little flash on the parts an they all fit together nicely with only needing putty a couple times. The cockpit is lacking detail but its nice enough. I would recommend this kit.

It Ain't Pretty!
By Jimmy D. September 20, 2017
The A-10 Warthog isn't pretty, but it's arguably the best ground attack plane ever. It was literally designed around its massive 30 mm rotary canon and can carry an armament load that is jaw dropping to say the least! Add to that, in can loiter over the enemy for a long, long time while it rains down brutal destruction that would seem almost biblical in scope. I chose to model Capt. (now Colonel) Kim Campbell's A-10A that she flew over Baghdad when she earned the Air Medal and Distinguished Flying Cross for her incredible piloting skills and bravery under fire. Academy did a great job on this kit and detail, scale fidelity, and recessed panel lines are top notch. Pay particular attention to the cockpit assembly when you are ready to mate it to the fuselage halves. First, be sure to add as much ballast weight as you can fit in the areas noted so as to avoid this plane being a tail sitter. Second, be sure to have the necessary clamps, rubber bands and/or tape you'll need to hold it all together at the ready. I practiced this procedure a couple of times before I committed to glue and was glad I did. I had to use a little putty at the forward third of the wing roots and on the sides of the engine housings. Academy supplies an impressive array of bombs and rockets in this kit and I spent a little extra time detailing them. Included are (12) Mk82 bombs, (2) Mk84s, (2) GBU-10 smart bombs, and (6) Maverick missiles. The only thing I would try to improve in this kit are the decals. I used them as is but had to finesse them to get a satisfactory outcome. The adhesive seemed a bit light and I ended up using a little diluted white glue in a few places to get them to stick. The shark mouth decals required some strategic cuts to get them to lay flat. I also had to apply Micro-Sol a number of times to get them to settle to an acceptable degree. The shark mouth also ended up with a missing tooth in the front. It might have been due to a slight misalignment on my part, but I ended up hand painting a new tooth in that area and it turned out okay. All in all, this was a fun kit to build and I'm thrilled to have it in my display case.
