  1. Yes , another Warthog.. I hope i can finish it this time.. The box (maybe my choose for the subject) Aires cockpit Correct fan for the wrong kit.. i hope they fits well on the Italeri kit Kit decal and some spares from an old Superscale sheet
  2. Tim's Italeri A-10

    Joining you with this kit. Which has remained in my stash since it came out in 1997. Two finish options - both Europe Lizard. I've not decided which as yet.
  3. Hi everybody; I don't think the subject needs any introduction, as it's a well known aircraft. Slightly out of my normal interests (which are mainly fighters or fighter/bombers), it is also the type my friend and fellow BMer @Gene K flew in the second part of his career. So let's see: the kit aftermarkets that I'll be using and the specific aircraft I'm modelling Which corresponds to this, in real life (pic from https://f16crewchief.deviantart.com/art) BTW, does anybody know where to find more pics of this specific airframe? This one seems to be the only one showing up on Internet. Anyway, I started with a dryfit of the major parts: nose wheel bay and fuselage some panel lines not lining up very well in the nose and underneath A bit of a gap in the nose U/C bay area too Port top wing has some moulding defects at the root and on the outer edge which not surprisingly led to a bad alignment, when mated with the bottom section Starboard wing looks much better test fitting with fuselage The root joins look better once you apply a little pressure to set the correct dihedral At this point, I decided to check the fit of the lovely Aires resin tub which sports a very restrained casting block and a slot to be paired with the inside of the retractable ladder bay In order to fit it into the fuselage, the areas marked with a red pen need to go The IP coaming needs to be removed too, because there's a resin part for that too, but later for that. The kit cockpit mounting tabs need to go as well so after some scraping with a ball pointed Dremel tool and some cutting with a knife, I got here This way, the inner part of the ladder bay fits into the tub slot. As for the rest: Still a loooong way to go .... Comments, hint, tips, suggestions, critiques - all welcome Ciao
  4. Finished this today - the HobbyBoss A-10 with Authentic Decals aftermarket transfers and Eduard bombs and missiles. I'm visiting a friend in England tomorrow and her son James asked me specifically for a model of this type of aircraft - he requested 'wheels-up' so he can hang it from his ceiling, which required a bit of modification but the kit gear doors fortunately fitted very well. I added an Airfix pilot from the Vampire. I got the transfers because the kit transfers looked a bit ropey and didn't include a sharkmouth(!) and was a bit dismayed to find the kit didn't include any external stores either which meant I promptly spent twice what I had paid for the kit on Eduard resin bombs (Mk.82, Mk.83, Paveway II and HoBoS, if I recall correctly). I'm not sure if the aircraft would have carried all these stores at the same time but the model is for a 14-year old so I reasoned moar dakka. Thanks to Jamie at Sovereign Hobbies for sorting me out the colours (ACUS03 Light Ghost Gray and ACUS40 Dark Ghost Gray) - the kit instructions show a much greater contrast between the two greys (grays) but this is for clarity, the real colours are pretty hard to tell apart - not quite as hard as my photos indicate but that is my fault. Anyway it's my first completion of the year, here it is: Cheers, Stew
  5. The new set to upgrade "old" 1/48 A-10 models to modern standards and improve overall accuracy of them. The set is shown here on Hobby Boss model. Pics have high level of magnification.
  6. Best 1/48 A10 Warthog kit?

    Hey, I'm new to these forums I was looking online for an A10 'Hog' (1/48) to add to my stash, but came across five or so different models. They all seemed to have their good and bads (e.g. no detail; no access panels; bad decals etc...). I have no idea which one to get. Money is not an issue, and I want to model it being heavily maintained, therefore, I want as many access panels as possible. If the engine's cowling can be opened, then a detailed engine would be nice. I also want a detailed cockpit. I don't care what the decals are like because I will probably get aftermarket ones. Please can any of you give your opinion on which model is best. Please link any detail sets (e.g. engine or cockpit) for one in your answer. Thanks )
  7. Im in with a Lizard A10A from Tamiya in 1/48. This is an old kit, with raised panel lines and unrealistic armament - I will look for references, raid the spares and other kits for appropriate weaponry... As you can see, I bought this 'partially started' from Evil Bay - can I ask Mods for the to confirm its wellunder the 25% mark - I will need to start again anyways.. I have some aftermarket decals from XtraDecals to build an A10A based out of RAF Bentwaters/RAF Woodbridge - these were always seen around East Anglia growing up in the early 80's in their cool lizard scheme. I often went to Bentwaters as a youngster before joining the Army in 1985, as my dad had a friend serving in the USAFE based there so loads of memories.... Funny thing, 21 years later A10C's saved my and some colleagues bottoms a few times in Helmand (along with GR7/9s !) and they are still going strong - formidable weapon with that great sound when it fires over you.....Brrrrrrp..... Brrrrrt.... More Brrrrt... Low level fun from the titanium bathtub!
  8. Hi folks,been quietly doing the Hobbyboss A10 "easy" kit for a couple of weeks while waiting for parts to dry on other projects. I am not really a "modern" aircraft builder and the last A10 I built was Matchbox,s kit when it was brand new.I have no idea how accurate this kit is but fit of parts was superb(only eight parts make the complete airframe) and the panel lines were some of the best I have come across from any maker.many thanks for looking.
  9. Hi everyone! I finished this one a while ago, but have not yet presented it to the Britmodeller readership. It's the Revell (Italeri rebox) A-10A, that was built under a strong influence of 'A-10s over Kosovo' book. While A-10 is in my top 3 US aircraft list, it is said to see so many A-10 models built with totaly unrealistic loadouts. In this case, I replicated the warload as it was on that fateful day, including the empty Maverick rail. For more photos and full story (I bet you are wandering what's with the green engine pod), click on the below photo. Thanks for watching!
  10. Here are the final pictures.. hope you enjoy them. For the build look here: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234931114-148-oa-10a-thunderbolt-ii-callsign-sandy/ And for all your comments, good or bad.. Shoot! Guess this on is really my favourite..
