1/48 Revell A-10 of the 303rd Expeditionary Fighter Squadron

April 2, 2020 · in Aviation · · 5 Comments

This build is a commission build. A friend who supported our ’s in Afghanistan during Operation Enduring Freedom in 2012 purchased the A-10 Warthog to build it as one of the 303rd Expeditionary Fighter Squadron aircraft. This particular aircraft flew a mission with a flag that he presented to his wife. The kit spent years sitting around waiting to be built. His lovely Wife decided to have it built by me as a special Christmas gift for him. It was an honor to build and detail this kit.

I added photo etch and resin details and custom made the decals for the specific aircraft.

  1. Great build, David! What an imposing plane! I've got the Tamiya one in my shelf of doom, to be done in lizzard camo sharkmouth one day. Heard it has some inaccuracies; we 'll see.
    All the best!

  2. Nice build and looks great! Great jet...I flew it for twelve years.

  3. Dave. I recognized your seeker heads! Say Hello for me when you deliver this. What, no targeting pod?

    • It was delivered last Christmas. No targeting pod, did not have my 3-D printer back then. I did one on an F-15 model recently. Still working out the kinks on 3-D printing other weapons and pods.

  4. Nicely done! One beautifully ugly aircraft, but one of a kind.
