Aircraft build – Fairchild Republic A-10A Thunderbolt II

A-10A サンダーボルトII、1/48スケール、タミヤから

A-10-A

Or, better known as the “Warthog”. This is a 1/48 scale plastic kit, from Tamiya. Pretty much a straight out of the box build.

A-10-B

You really can’t tell, but I put a drop of clear crafting resin on the tips of each Maverick missile to give the impression of a lens cap. Looks nice in person.

A-10-C

I saw a few of these taking off from McGuire Air Force Base during Operation Desert Scam (yes, I’m biased about that). You don’t hear them coming at you, but you sure hear them when they leave.

A-10-E

A-10-F

Kit was completed on February 20th, 2017.
