  1. Hello everyone! First topic on WiP and hope it goes well! The kit is the Academy 1/72 A-10A Thunderbolt II. When I bought it I thought it was a real bargain! Only 12Euros, nice engraved panel lines with some rivets on, plenty of weapons, nice plastic, what could possibly go wrong? Well, when the built started I realised that the kit has very poor fit in almost all the important parts (upper and lower wing parts, engine base with rear fuselage, wings with fuselage, etc). I have heard (but it was too late) that the decals are trouble as well... Anyway, I don't like being grouchy so I
  2. I've been thinking of doing some USAFE stuff in 1/48 for a while now, and after a recent holiday to Suffolk, including a rather hot walk in Rendlesham Forest right up to the old fence at Woodbridge (and the obligatory trip to LN!) what better way to start than with the legendary A-10 Warthog. After some excellent advice on this site, I decided on the Italeri one. I'm sure all the kits have their pros and cons, but this seemed the best for my subject. Of course I'll need to find the right decals as this Hog will be a Bentwaters bird from circa 1986/87. WR tailcodes a must!
  3. Hi all, I'm looking to build a Bentwaters/Woodbridge Warthog in 1/48, what are my best options? So far I've seen Esci, Monogram, Tamiya and something called 'PMS' which has the same image on the box as the Tamiya kit (plus a Vulcan, of all things, in the background!) I'm not a rivet counter, but I don't want it to be too inaccurate like the wrong shape or anything. And it needs 81st TFW decals. Any advice please?

  11. Hi Guys, just finished this one, it was built for a GB on another forum. It's only the 2nd aircraft I've built, so plenty of mistakes and still a lot to learn.

  15. One of my A-10 flight tests in 1984-85 with the 6512th Test Squadron. The A-10 Combined Test Force at Edwards AFB was shut down at the end of 1983. The remaining A-10 test programs and two A-10s were turned over to the 6512th. When the test programs were completed in mid-1985, the A-10s were sent to the 3246th Test Wing at Eglin AFB as part of a consolidation of Systems Command A-7Ds at Edwards and A-10s at Eglin. '666 was my Ground Proximity Warning System (GPWS, pronounced jip-wiz) test jet. A program aimed at reducing controlled flight into terrain incidents. The A-10 GPWS consi

  17. A disclaimer: this set is from my collection but are official Air Force Flight Test Center photos. The AFFTC reference numbers are on the images. When I moved from the F-16XL Combined Test Force (CTF) in 1984 to the 6512th Test Squadron (Test Ops), there were two clean-outs taking place. The A-10 CTF was closing, in part to make room for the Advanced Tactical Fighter CTF, the YF-22/YF-23 competition, and because A-10 development flight test was pretty much coming to an end. A quarter mile away, Test Ops was making room to accept the two remaining A-10 test programs that had to be c
  18. Hi guys, I recently dug out an old Tamiya 1/48 A-10A Thunderbolt II kit that I had stashed away for some time. Decided to build it as the decal has started to yellow. I probably got this kit 10 years ago so I did not know about its problems then. I am now fixing it and am wondering if anyone who have done this kit well, has any advice on how to patch the following without using aftermarket parts (since I don't want to spend more money on this kit). 1) The front wheel well is open on the top and front that you could see all the way to the cockpit. It befuddles me why Ta
