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.

"Great kit of tank busting mayhem"
rockykeele (Tucson, AZ)
The Good: Excellent detail, great decals, large number of parts, awesome weapons load. The Bad: None come to mind. This is one of the best model kits I've done. The interior and exterior detail are very good, parts fit together very nicely, decals are great and the number of weapons supplied with the kit is amazing. Oh yeah, and the 30 mm cannon. The plane is fairly large (about the size of B-25 bomber). Overall, a super fun kit - highly recommended.

"Excellent Kit"
jeremy.s.michels1
This is an excellent kit from Tamiya. One of the best A-10s on the market. The fit of the pieces is good, the decals are good, and the details are good. The amount of bombs that come with the kit is unbelievable as well. The instructions were easy to follow like all Tamiya kits.
