"Gaps in Plastic Require Putty - Overall Great Model"
Sauceman (Asheville, NC)
There are gaps in this design, and putty may be necessary to fill gaps in the wings and engine areas. Both times I completed this model, there were gaps in my plane. Be sure to weigh down the front of the plane during construction, as it don't sit flat unless you do so. The instructions mention this, but be sure to do it. Otherwise, your A-10 will pop a wheelie.

"A-10 Warthog."
jchester7018
Still working on mine but it's coming together nicely. My first model in 20years so it's taking me longer than it should. It fits together well but I had trouble with the cockpit. I was really impressed with the amount of detail on the control panel. If you want a challenge try painting all of them. I hosed it up pretty bad but not because of the model. Lots of options for weapons load outs. My only advice is to glue a couple of AA batteries behind the cockpit. The model is very tail heavy.

 
"Best A-10 in 1/48 scale for the price"
kajoe55 (Indiana)
I absolutely love the A-10 despite critics who call it ugly. Revell/Monogram’s version is the least expensive on the market if you are looking for 1/48 scale. This is definitely an “A” Model so if you are looking to the current “C” version, check your references as you will have to modify the model. As with most Monogram kits, it goes together well for the most part, but wing to fuselage and engines to fuselage will need some filler and sanding to get a snug fit. This kit was made for ground static display, but despite loading the nose with counter-balance I still needed to use the clear plastic piece to have it stand correctly, especially if you load up the weapons. My biggest issue was painting. I wanted the European I scheme and as I am not checked out yet with an airbrush, I used Testors spray paints. They come in the three colors you need, but masking and painting led to problems and despite what you might think, you cannot use Testors paint in a can to match the color of the spray. I ruined my first effort this way. So, be careful masking! Finally, because I had extra stores, I really loaded my completed model for tank plinking. Revell mentions how the stores should be distributed but if you check references, and have extra parts from other models, you can really go to town. My version has two AIM-9 missiles, jamming pod, three Mavericks on a single station per wing, and CBU 58’s provided with the kit. I was going to load the external fuel tank but resisted. If you used aftermarket weapons stores you could really go crazy. The finished product looks great and I would highly encourage this kit to all modelers. As always have fun.

 
"One of the best"
build master
In my opinion, the A-10 Warthog is one of the best in our arsenal. If you enjoy building model airplanes, you'll enjoy this one. The detail is very good and decals are excellent. However, I had to spend some time pre-fitting and modifying the wings and still had to use some putty in the assembly. I would not recommend this model to a first time model builder, but for an experienced builder this is a great model.
