Revell A-10 Warthog
By Samvw2001 July 1, 2013
Great model at a great price. Buy two bottles of base coat, as one is not enough. Some of the pieces were difficult to fit & the instructions were sometimes ambiguous but overall a good model.

A-10 Thunderbolt II
By skippykeesler August 12, 2013
I think this is one of the best 1/48 scale WartHog models on the market.I experienced no real complactions during assembly other than gluing the cannon bay cover in place prior to installing the cockpit tub and nose wheel well. My own stupidity,so had to pry it off,this resulted in some putting sanding and re scribing panel lines,all my own fault.Overall detail is excellent especially in the cockpit,I only had to add a set of shoulder harnesses made of masking tape and fine wire buckles,and painted light grey.This thing comes with enough ordance to make anyone happy.The decals are excellent,depecting two different aircraft.For the price I just think you cannot beat it.I would highly recommend this kit.

Best A-10 in 1/48 scale for the price
By kajoe55 October 31, 2013
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.

Revell 1/48 A-10
By mooniemac2000 October 26, 2013
People think that this low tech aircraft can't pack a punch, but it is still in service to this day! The kit, though, never had it. I have seen it though, and it seems to be a good model. Especially the price here is amazing, this is probably the best choice that you'll get. I have seen prices at other places rise up to twice this much! The kit though, is said to have an inaccurate ejection seat. You should fine a resin replacement if you will use an open canopy. Compared to other 1/48 A-10, this one is your best bet.
