  1. I think that it would make it more difficult to produce certain canopies that have a blown cross section. Wouldn't it be harder to use slide molding techniques to get the rounded cross sections without gross distortion?

    To clarify: the Eduard kit has open gun covers,  but the engine cowl is closed. The wing gun covers are a little fiddly to close but not bad. My main issue with this kit is the slab sided vertical stabilizer with it's blunt/ fat leading edge.

  3. Wow! I did not expect so many responses to this thread. I just wanted to share what was such a profound experience in my childhood that I have never stopped feeling the wonder and awe of my first memory of model building. In the fifty odd years since then it has led to so many experiences and learning opportunities that I can't fathom what my life would have been like without these experiences/ lessons. I hope others have enjoyed reading these as much as I have.

    Reminds me a bit of the Bréguet 1050 Alizé.  Not much, but a bit :hmmm: We deserve new 1:48 of both if I'm honest... and greedy :wicked:

    Same here. Although it does look like someone used it as a boomark.:mental:

    G'day,

     

    I agree with everything filler has said. The Revell kit is the most accurate for a pre-LASTE mod A-10. Apart form raised panel lines, it has some very average fit in places like the wing to fuselage joint and filling and sanding will likley  obliterate the details in this area.

    I feel it should be mentioned that there is a Revell kit and a Revell/Monogram kit. The Monogram kit is the one to have while the Revell kit, first released as the J.A.W.S A-10, is not. Also I would advise getting a Monogram kit from the '80's as the molding and fit will be better. just my $0.02.......though sink marks in the wing pylons can be an issue in any of the Monogram releases.

    Allright, test taken. Scored  a "0" which is perfect. This surprises me since I am partially colorblind in one eye due to a childhood injury. It was a fun test, but I will still avoid color arguments.:hypnotised:

  8. I was lucky enough to see an OV-1D do an aerobatic display in 1982 at Ft. Huachuca Az. Best maneuver was a hammerhead stall turn. Really cool!:pilot: Thanks for sharing the pictures!! They are wonderful!
