  1. Thanks Stephen ! Rumour: there's a new tooling 1/48th Fairchild Republic A-10C Thunderbolt II reported in the pipe line. Candidates: Wolfpack Design (too big kit for such a small producer IMO), Academy (dubious as not mentionned in the catalogue 2021, but in 2022 as the rumour source is M. Jung from Wolfpack Design who has close ties with Academy), Great Wall Hobby (is supposed working on a new tool 1/48th F-14 family, but considering the numerous new tool kits from the Tomcat... So why not a A-10), AFV-Club (after the 1/48th U-2...), Meng (after the 1/48th F/A-18E...), Kinetic (a
  2. A-10A Thunderbolt II Interior 3D Decal (QD32008 - For Trumpeter Kit) 1:32 Qunita Studio When Quinta’s innovative products first came to our attention a few months ago they caused quite a stir, as well they should. The replacement Instrument Panels and internal details are mind-boggling to look at, because we’re used to seeing simplified styrene instrument panels, or Photo-Etch Brass panels with either two layers of etch, or laminated parts that can be tricky to glue together, even though they are pre-painted for your ease. But decals? These aren’t your run-of-t
  3. Greetings This is my Monogram kit built as an A-10C with some antennas scratch-built and Eduard photo-etched interior. I used a Black Box resin Interior for some of the upgrade such as the seat and the canopy raising components. The Decals were from reidairpublishing and they were really good. No silvering ,handled great and settled down really well. Stripes, as on all D-Day markings, were a bit of a challenge. Gunze Olive drab and Vallejo Grey, Clear coated with GX 100 and Semi-Gloss final with decanted Mr. Hobby Semi-Gloss.
  4. Warthogs of the 356th Tac Fighter Squadron, 354th Tac Fighter Wing out of Myrtle Beach AFB at Nellis AFB for Green flag 81-3, March 1981. 76-0538, an early arrival on the Nellis transient ramp 76-0554 78-0654 78-0675, wing CO's aircraft Thanks for looking, Sven
  5. After a popular vote - well who can resist requests by such esteemed BM'ers such as @JOCKNEY and @Enzo Matrix the A-10 will be the victim of this blitzbuild. Not sure of start time yet but there is a back-story to why this kit stayed in my stash. In June 1977 I set myself the challenge of walking across the North York's Moors - not by the more usual west-east route but north to south from Whitby to Pickering. Staying in Youth Hostels along the way it was only a two day walk. I think it was on the first day that I was at the top of hill looking for viewpoints to get my
  6. Just finished the 1/48 A-10 Thunderbolt from Italeri, my first jet build. Had a lot of fun, learned a lot and there is enough room for improvement (just have a quick look at the canopy). I painted the model using spray cans. Starting with a white primer, Tamiya AS-28 and finishing with a matte varnish from Vallejo. The model has been weathered using some panel liner and a wash from Vallejo. For future projects I’m interested in buying an airbrush, tips are more than welcome.
  7. This is my first entry for this gb: an Italeri's 48th scale A-10. I will build it in old camo scheme. The box some bits to detail my model ciao Ale

  9. Most of these are USAF images recovered during the A-10 Combined Test Force shut down Wish I had dates for the USAF images. Apparently you can build this jet with production or modified vertical tails... Those pods (below) are precursors to the LANTIRN system used on the F-16 and F-15E... Those pods again... Taller tails... The museum piece on display at the 1988 Edwards Open House. No seats, no engines. Waiting for the Flight Test Museum to be built...
  10. Does anyone know if it's possible to get any 1/72 decals for an 81st TFW Warthog from the late 80's at Bentwaters or Woodbridge? I've searched eBay, Hannants and Google and can't find any. Did anybody ever make them?
  11. My attempt at building a WR tail code A-10 in euro one camo. I don’t live to far from the twin bases of Woodbridge and Bentwaters and already had my HAS diorama, so an A-10 was always a logical choice. I remember going along to a Bentwaters airshow as a kid and frequently seeing the ‘hunting pairs’ of Warthogs flying over. Inspiration also from the new acquisition at the Bentwaters Cold War Museum. Lovely to see one back there. This is an old Revell kit from eBay with a nice resin seat thanks to @RMP2. Thanks for looking.
  12. Right. Thats it decided. Im going with Tamyas A-10 in 48th and the grey colours (MASK-10A I think they called it, no FS numbers assigned apparently, so its best guess). Almost OOB this one, just some nicer Mavericks to use, Hasegawa Rockeyes look pretty much identical to the kit bits, but see how they go. Load will be a simple and realistic one with the ALQ-119 a pair of single rail AGM-65s (1xTV and 1xIIR) and a pair or two of Mk20s, but that may change as I keep searching for photos. Ive read that they performed better with pylons 2 and 10 removed and were often used that wa

  14. 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.
  15. Hey guys, There's talk here and there about Italeri's re-release of the A-10 in A-10C guise, but not much detail. Anyway, I ended up buying the kit at the LHS (couldn't resist the box art) and I decided to do a quick review so you'll know what you're getting into. The boxing in question: The kit comes in three sprues, two main and one clear, a really nice decal sheet with a decent amount of stencils and markings for four aircraft. Note that this kit includes decals for a decent approximation of the -A and -C instrument panel. However, the kit instrument panels have raised detail that only
  16. 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
  17. Kit manufacturer: Hobbyboss Scale: 1/48 Type: A-10 Thunderbolt II Extras used: Eduard canopy masks, Aftermarket decals, scratch built FOD covers Paints and colours used: Tamiya and Mr Hobby Finished today. Very much enjoyed this build, Finished in arctic aggressor camo, couldn't get the exact decals so its finished as a bit of a what if scheme. Slightly overdone the pre/post shading and the pva glue on the bomb lenses hadn't dried when i took the pictures. Anyway, here's the pics and thanks for looking
  18. Just announced on the FB page the great news. https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=1056721511034191&id=159480594091625&fref=nf For those not on FB; For details on the museum : http://www.bcwm.org.uk/ Julien
  19. Hello all My latest completed build - Revell's 1/48 A-10 Thunderbolt. This was a Christmas gift, so just went at this one straight out of the box and with even less attention to accuracy and detail than usual, so anyone with a particular love of / interest in this aircraft might want to look away now... Not one of my favourite builds, but I think it's turned out ok (it even survived a 9ft fall to the floor from the shelf of doom!). For me the best thing about the kit was the decals, which conformed beautifully to the curves and plentiful raised detail on this beast. Painted with Tamiya acry
  20. All 1/48 scale from the Russian Knight done in January to Rafale B finished yesterday in 2014. Have posted a majority of these before. Thanks for looking. New year resolution is flankers and more flankers! J-10B prototype
  21. 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!
  22. Turned Brass Aircraft Barrels/Probes 1:48 Master Master have an enviable reputation for superb turned metal gun barrels for aircraft, tanks and ships in various scales, but they also create pitot probes, angle-of-attack (AoA) probes, and include Photo-Etch (PE) brass parts with their sets as the need requires. This latest batch of new releases brings a number of new items for kits both new and old. They are all packaged in small flat packs with card headers that also protect the components in transit. The individual parts are often double-bagged in re-sealable packs, and recently the pa
  23. I read a story on the internet of the rescue of Vega 31. The F-117A which was shutdown over Kosovo in 1999. This was the main inspiration for wanting to make one of those Warthogs. An OA-10A of the 81st Fighter Squadron 'Panthers' on a Combat Search and Rescue mission. That squadron was normally based on Spangdahlem, Germany, and are the ones ever so often practising attack runs on a major bridge in the Netherlands I live close by to. Always a nice sound and sight to see! Decals I have ordered from Afterburner and are on their way. I have all the different boxings of the A-10 but I will be
  24. QB 72 411 A-10 Thunderbolt II Correct Fan Blades 1:72 Quickboost by Aires One thing modellers are always looking for are increased detail in engine faces and exhausts. With the A-10 and its podded engines the Engine fan face is not buried deep in the airframe but visible on top. Quickboost has come up with a replacement for these to make them look correct. Conclusion Great parts to add realism and a good look to your finished model, and very well cast. These fan fronts will look excellent with the correct finishing. Recommended for the Hobbyboss Kit. Highly recommended. Review s
