Mr Fisher,


Have you thought of a set to correct the forward section of the Trumpeter A-10?


Looking at the RF-8 Conversion you are releasing it seems you are the man for the job!

What's wrong with the forward fuselage other than level of cockpit detail?

I'm no expert, but the profile is off not to mention the canopy.


I think if you look at few builds online most of them have commented and tried to sand out the nose.


If I was Paul I'd slice up a 48th scale monogram A-10 to get the contours correct. Scale up to 32nd and make it graft able to the Trumpeter kit.


Paul's set could include the nose section from just behind the canopy, the cockpit and new clear resin canopy.


I think some holdouts on this kit myself included are waiting for a resin fix. :)

Yup - nose profile out in cross section - windshield centre pane too wide.


I was going to improve the nose on mine with Milliput and a file - the Squadron vac canopy cures the windshield.

A correct resin fuselage for the A-10 would be most welcomed, fixes can be done to the kit parts but requires a tremendous amount of time and effort to correct all that is wrong up front on the Trumpeter kit.  I believe the Squadron vac canopies for the A-10 are no longer produced, so need to include that to.  The Have Glass II canopy put out by AFV Club for the A-10 unfortunately made a direct copy of Trumpeter's canopy so it is also equally useless.

Here is the problem as explained by Frank Mitchell, who went the extra mile to fix it, and show how it was done.

Hey Paul,


Timmy! has my Trumpeter A-10 kit solely for the purpose of figuring out how to master a fix. He's your guy for this one!


I'd buy one t00-

I have a very long build thread here that explains many of the changes required.

Count me in - I'd certainly be interested in a new nose section.
