A-10 Thunderbolt II

The appearance of the A-10 is remarkable while its performance is amazing. Known affectionately as the "Wart Hog" by its pilots, it's a large single seat aircraft, identified by a pair of TF-34-100A high bypass fan jet engines mounted high near the rear of the twin tailed fuselage. A few of the specifications are: Length 53' 4"; height 14'8", span 57'6"; maximum gross weight 47,400lbs, including 16,000lbs of external stores. Internal armament is the GAU-8/A 30mm Gatling cannon capable of 2100 or 4200 rounds per minute. It carries 1350 rounds of ammunition, a fire control head-up display, CRT TV monitor, laser spot seeker plus a diversified armament panel that can facilitate any operational need. The A-10 has been around since 1972, and has again proven its worth during the recent Gulf war.

"A salute to my friends in MB South Carolina"
A fun build after a frustrating Revell model. I always go to Tamiya to get my quality fix. The usual attention to detail. I spent a lot of time detail painting the engines, which were then hidden; gotta love Tamiya. Great decals, especially in the cockpit. Don't be like me and forget to put them on until the cockpit is completely built and installed! Read the instructions dummy! Modeled after the planes I used to see in Myrtle Beach. They are incredibly intimidating overhead. Made me glad they were on my side.

"great kit"
this is a great kit for beginners and advanced hobbyists. parts were of the best quality and easy to assemble.

"excellent model"
JRB (Burleson, Texas)
as usual, Tamiya produces another excellent model. Unbelievably armed. But hey, it is what it is. Went together as a dream and all the options make it hard to chose. I am now looking for more Tam products.
