1/48 Hobby Boss A-10 Thunderbolt II

December 1, 2017 in Aviation

This is one I built some years ago but as far as I can remember there was no problems with it. The only thing you must remember to do is to put a large weight in the nose or it will sit on its tail.

  1. Looks like a nice clean build, Robert, the A-10 is a great looking plane.

  2. Nicely done Robert, I like it.

  3. Sharp-lookin’ Warthog, Robert (and the gun came with it..?) – hadn’t seen a kit with THAT included before.

    • Yes the gun is part of the kit and you also get a spare gun barrel so you can build the gun and hide it away in the plane, why you would want to do that I don`t know, or you can display it and just put the spare barrel in the nose.

  4. Nicely done. That fella is loaded for bear!

  5. Nice!!! An aircraft designed around a gun.

  6. Hello Robert,
    Very impressive build. Those wings and their connections to the main air frame must be “solid” but flexible.
    Regards,
    Dirk / The Netherlands.

  7. I can vividly remember watching these planes make strafing runs …………… it looked like someone took a fire hose, mounted it under the nose, and was squirting out a steady non stop stream of red tracer material………….. The sound was similar to a chain saw running at wide open throttle !!!!!!!!!!

    I also had one of these clip the top section of my tanks radio antennae with its wing, when they made a low level pass right over the top of us……… The top section of the antennae was missing a few feet off it. Needless to say I ducked inside the commander’s cupola when I saw how close it was getting to us…………. My poor loader just froze there.

    Glad they were on our side !!!

    You captured the look rather well……………. I like it …………. a LOT !!!
