1/32 A-10 Forward Fuselage

Recommended Posts

Hello Paul,

 

Is there any decision about this project?

I am now reading the incredible "Flying the A-10 in the Gulf war" by William l. Smallwood and it just increases more and more my will to build my A-10 kit, and even maybe to buy another one, even if this is a very early Trumpeter kit with so many corrections to do.

So i'd like to know if there is a possibility that a resin nose correction would be released. Otherwise i will try to do the job myself, but this kind of correction is not easy, it's more some sculpture than a simple "cut / rescribe / add 1mm" correction. :)

 

Thank you in advance for your answer !

Hi , 

It is indeed my plan to do a correction set for the Warthog, but it will take a while yet.

Glad to hear this.  My two kits will remain in the stash until!!

Great work on your A-10 mate love the devotion to duty!

Only back for a few weeks from crawling all over the A-10 at Pima and the fantastic A-10 Stalag display.

High level of A-10 motivation right now...still my favorite A-10's of all time are the Jaws schemes..

With a bunch of work sanding and rescribing the nose, you can get a decent looking Hog profile with just the kit plastic and Squadron canopy.
