Product Description

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
By rockykeele February 4, 2013
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
By jeremy.s.michels1 October 28, 2014
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.

Easy to build kit!
By StevenSnodgrass7037 December 16, 2014
I started a Revell version of the A-10. The fit was so poor, I threw it out and got the Tamiya version. I could not have been happier. Tamiya does a fine job with fit and structural integrity. Exceptional.

A10 Model Review - Built for an A10 Pilot Friend
By robert.keim September 12, 2015
I would give this Model a 5 Star rating. A Quote from the pilot who flew this plane, (Extremely detailed and accurate). This model is very well made and went together very well.
